Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Matthew Tobey
More of an oddball homage to the bygone era of the beach film than a straight-up parody, Back to the Beach still has its fair share of goofy gags aimed at the genre and its stars. But the film is mostly just a series of out-of-nowhere B-list celebrity cameos and out-of-nowhere song-and-dance numbers, which actually isn't the worst thing in the world. It's a light movie that's just short enough and just fun enough to be enjoyable. The songs are at the very least interesting, with a pre-scandal Pee-Wee Herman covering the Trashmen's "Surfin' Bird" and a you-have-to-see-it-to-believe-it Annette Funicello and Fishbone duet, and there are a few genuine chuckles along with a few forced ones mixed in with a fair share of groaners. Still, while Back to the Beach is definitely on its way to being a minor cult-classic, it's anything but a must-see movie.

    Not up to the originals...

    This was mildly cute, but, not even close to the humor of the originals, and, didn't even quite follow as a "whatever happened to?" of the characters from the Beach Party movies. First off, Annette's name in the Beach Party movies was Dee Dee (although, Frankie was still Frankie.) This was really a spoof of a spoof, y'know? Because, the beach movies were campy as get out to start with, but, they had an adorable quality to them, and a specific formula: Frankie does something stupid, Dee Dee gets mad. They flirt with other people to make each-other insanely jealous. They make up. (Yes, this happened here, too, but... meh.) And, where was Dead-Head, Animal, Candy, the Von Zipper Gang, for pity's sake? And, what was with Pee Wee Herman??? While the beach movies were made long before I was born, I still grew up watching them on the old movie channels and loved them. This I thought would be great, a "what happened to?". It, however, was a severe disappointment.
