Underrated 80s Filthy COMEDY

If you are looking for a serious tale with a great story don't bother. But if you are in the mood to laugh with a little filthy flavor then take an 1.5 hours and watch this flick. A really funny 80s movie with one of the biggest actors of all time who probably will never tell you he was in this. Hector Elizondo Dice and the security guy really make this movie funny. It's like a before it's time van wilder(sort of). Just a funny movie that will bring you back to your younger years and make you think of all the crap you and your friends ended up getting themselves into while trying to pursue a spring break like atmosphere. Definitely worth watching for a good chuckle.

I would give it a 6.75/10

It's a fun movie that's definitely heavily defined by the 80s. It will not blow you mind, but it will make you laugh. Hope you like slapstick and tits. The first time I saw this was in 2016 and it reminds me of a dumbed down cross between home alone and blazing saddles. My wife disagrees with me and wonders if I've ever seen blazing saddles, so maybe my opinion is sketchy.

I really can't believe people were able to write more than a few lines about this movie. It's really just a simple fun movie. I would give it a 6.75/10. A few drinks in or a drinking game adds to the movie going experience.

Enjoy your stay

Plot; Two young men visiting a swanky, high end luxury resort get caught up in a plot to steal a valuable diamond.

Besides DNA (allegedly), my father and I only share two things in common; 1.) A love of building model cars and airplanes, and 2.) An appreciation for the teen sex comedy. The latter began when he took me to see 'Porky's'... when I was 7. Did I mention my grandfather was a minister? Anyway, between the rise of home video and premium cable, he and I watched just about every film the genre had to offer during the 80s.

Somewhere in that time I'm reasonably sure that I watched 'Private Resort'. In fact, I don't think it's one I shared with my dad, but my step-sisters, who were crushing on Johnny Depp (more on him in a sec). But I remembered next to nothing going into this re-watch (thanks to a bargain find at Wal-Mart, of all places, in a 6-movie "beach pack"). There's almost no set up of our two "heroes". They arrive with no backstory and no real stated purpose. We don't learn where they're from or how they got the money to go to this swanky resort. Nothing. Not that any of that is really important, but it took me a few minutes to get back into b-movie mode.

I mentioned Johnny Depp, but he's not the only recognizable face here. Typically in these sorts of movies the cast is populated by "actors" with very brief resumes on IMDb, usually stalling out around the start of the Clinton administration. Not so here. Along with Depp there's Robb Morrow (as the other guy in the duo), Hector Elizondo as the villain, Leslie Easterbrook (The 'Police Academy' films) as his wife, Andrew Clay (no Dice here) as a resort guest, and actress Dody Goodman as the target of Elizondo's diamond scheme. Depp and Morrow are fine. Perhaps a tad better than your average schlep in these kinds of films. But it's the supporting cast that really shine here. Elizondo and Goodman are great, bringing so much more to their characters than was there on the page, and a whole host of anonymous actors do fun work with their bit parts.

This isn't a film for everyone, but if you like the genre, I think you'll enjoy your 82 minute stay at 'Private Resort'.
