A very underrated rom com from the 80s

Miracle Beach is a 1980s rom com that tells the tale of a lovelorn man who is in love with a girl. Problem is he can't convince this girl that he has feelings for her and of course he stumbles across a mysterious bottle one day that unleashes a beautiful quirky young woman who happens to be a genie. So she helps the lovelorn man to win the woman of his dreams but he ends up falling in love with the genie and has to decide who he really loves?

Now I haven't seen this film in years and I was just thinking about it now. Yes its super cheesy and yes the premise is very bizarre in a way think of it like that TV show with Larry Hagman I Dreamed Of Jennie and you get this flick.

I suggest you track it down and see what you think of it.

beauty(-ies) and the beach bums

Well, as so many have said, this is a fun movie, with (at least in the R-rated version) a lot of gratuitous nudity from a wide range of babes, somehow excepting our two leading ladies, ably portrayed by the scrumptious Felicity Waterman and the insanely adorable Ami Dolenz.

The other reviewers have pretty well told the story of this movie as far as its strengths (lots of pretty skin and faces, cute love story, nothing too heavy) and weaknesses (mediocre acting by most of the cast, predictable plot). I just wanted to be nerdy and point out one thing which dropped my rating down for this still-enjoyable romp: Jeannie's disdain for Earth, at the start of the film, vanishes without a trace the instant she appears here, never to be heard from again. That's just horrible writing. I know, it's just a B-movie with skin and goofy laughs, but come on. It wouldn't have taken even 10 minutes of thought to put in at least a token follow-on to that bewilderingly abandoned plot point. She could have shown a transition from cynic to some sort of warmth and interest, over the course of the movie.

Oh well. Ami really is about as adorable a genie as anyone could want, so it's hard to care too much about that. If she ever popped out of a bottle for me, I'd be asking her what *she* wanted!!

One last thing: what was up with Dean Cameron's hair? Points for originality, I guess, but... wow. LOL!

Did I mention Ami is adorable?

Miracle Beach introduced me to Ami Dolenz in a Bikini! Nuff Said!

Dean Cameron plays a guy down on his luck. He finds his girlfriend(Monique Gabrielle fully nude) sleeping with his landlord. She walks out on him and the landlord kicks him out for not paying his rent. Jeannie(played by the gorgeous Ami Dolenz) who lives with other Genie's in the sky is given orders to check out how humanity is doing. She lands her bottle on the beach and Scotty ends up with it. He wakes up the next morning in bed with two naked girls in bed. He runs off with the bottle. She appears to him in the bathroom. Her figure really looks nice in her Genie outfit. I would have preferred to see her belly button, but she still looked nice. She changes his clothing to make him believe in her. He tells her he wants to fall in love with Dana, a beautiful brunette who is the girlfriend of another guy(Played by Dean Cain). She is not able to make her fall in love with him. He ends up wishing to beat her boyfriend in volleyball and he does it. Dana is impressed. Jeannie zaps up a huge house on the sand for Scotty and his 2 buddies to live in. Pat Morita plays a man out of work who was kind to Scotty. He hires him to work at his house. Jeannie zaps a swimsuit contest to take place at their beach and the women stay at their house. There are quite a few topless shots of the girls and they look pretty good. Scotty continues to have wishes granted so he can impress Dana. He does not sleep with her which makes Jeannie happy. She starts falling for him as she shows him how to act and dance with her. Ami and Dean really make a cute couple. Her smile makes me melt. The friends continue to score with the girls. Jeannie has Scotty practice massaging her and they have a little spark of romantic looks at each other. He still wants Dana and Jeannie sabotages his date with her. She is scolded by her Genie boss.

Now we get to the best part of the movie. Jeannie and Scotty walk the beach and see Dana with another guy. Jeannie tells him to pick another girl. He decides to make Dana jealous. Jeannie offers to be his girlfriend. Then Scotty utters the magic words "I wish you were visible". Jeannie appears in polka dot blue & white bikini. She is a perfect 10. She has perfect breasts that are popping out of her top nicely. Add to that the her incredibly sexy abs, they are perfect. Also her legs are perfect. I have viewed this scene hundreds of times and it never get old watching it. She even surprises Scotty, but the jealousy bit works for the moment. Jeannie ends up in the bikini contest(wearing a blue bikini now and no great close up shots)and she wins. Scotty is furious and banishes her. He spends another night with Dana and finds out he loves Jeannie. He finds her bottle and says he loves her. She appears and all is good. They walk off onto the beach and Pat Morita turns into Jeannie's boss. He was watching and helping her all the time. This was really a fun movie. It would have been perfect for the whole family, but there are a lot of bare breasts. Harldy any profanity and no violence. Worth watching for getting to see Ami in a bikini!
