The Beach Girls : I miss the early 80's…

I miss the early 80's…

Just an awful film for all the right reasons but I can't stop watching this on Flix now (the cute girls help too)...being somewhat nostalagic I suppose, but the general vibe of this film is just so refreshing... such a much more innocent, fun loving era than what we're living in now.

Re: I miss the early 80's…

This film's dynamic, unpretentious, and blithely carefree celebration of let it all hang out giddy mindless hedonism was a total treat to behold. I really miss the fun-lovin' early 80's as well.

Re: I miss the early 80's…

I was just 10 years old when this movie came out in 1982. LOL I do miss the 80's because we did not have "Politically Correctness" like we do now which sucks I hate to say it!

Re: I miss the early 80's…

Exactly Rob, I despise all the political corrective garbage and mind control by our media now. The 70's and 80's were the greatest of times.

Re: I miss the early 80's…

Yes I cannot stand politically correctness crap! Yes the major networks have definately learned to control the minds of those that want to watch crime and drama shows all right along with reality shows as well. Yes the 70's and 80's were the greatest times, but now the 60's it was "Make love not war!" You cannot forget about that guy!

I know exactly what you mean about that because when this movie came out in 1982 I was only 10 years old. It was a great movie and it also reminded you of how things were a lot more open minded compared to how things are now.

I know what you mean. It just seemed as if programming on TV was a lot better back then and the kind of films that they came out with was a lot better than todays films. I mean we did not have "Politically Correctness" to worry about because if a film wanted to poke fun at nerds let's just say like in Revenge Of The Nerds then it could be done. Now a days we have to be a little more sensitive to other people. I understand why but if it is a film for fun come on and get some laughs out of things that are intended to be funny!

Re: I miss the early 80's…

I am glad that you agree with me about the difference in films from 25+ years ago. Things are so much different now and it is not to make fun of people but to make people laugh to enjoy themselves. Yeah that is what I say is screw those who do not know how to have any fun!

Re: I miss the early 80's…

Hey rob, whats up, love talking early 80's.. This movie was actually shot in 1981, and released in some theaters in spring of 1982.. I have the soundtrack album and its really interesting to hear that i wanna go to paradise song. I was 10 when i saw this on cable in 83. Times are really different, no tattoos, body piercings cell phones and texting in this movie or that time frame..Less people in the world too. and things weren't as expensive then either.. Back in 81-82 you could argue with someone and not have to worry about being taken to court for offending someone...

Re: I miss the early 80's…

You have the soundtrack? LUCKY! Could you possibly share the tracks with us online? I'd be grateful.

I was in high school in the early 80's and finished in 1983.That era was the best in terms of music,television,movies,and of course girls.The entire attitude back then was much different than it is today.If only I had a time machine!

Re: I miss the early 80's…

Time machine wanted! I had a blast in the early 80's!

Re: I miss the early 80's…

Yeah, there's something really irresistible about films that capture that carefree attitude of the times.

What do you think this is, a signature? It's a way of life!

Re: I miss the early 80's…

I agree!

That was the pre AIDS, pre 9/11, pre gangbangers on the beach, pre face eating zombies on bath salts era.

Re: I miss the early 80's…

LOL! Yup, valid point, especially the latter.
