SAVAGE BEACH (1989)
As somebody who watched 69 million hours of late-night cable back in the 90's, I think I've seen about every low-budget sex/action movie there is and I've always had a soft (or should I say hard?) spot for the films of Andy Sidaris. They are simply pure entertainment from beginning to end. The stories are always crazy as hell and filled with amazing dialogue. I love the scene in this film where the male DEA agent is delivering some new weapons to a female agent:
Male: "I want you to see this special equipment I have for you."
Female: "Well, we're pretty isolated here and I don't always get my share."
Male: "Are you comfortable with a big gun?"
Female: "They have their advantages."
Male: "This baby's larger than most anything around."
Female: "Well, I'm not as impressed with size...as I am with performance."
Male: "Once loaded and cocked, all you need is a steady hand on the barrel."
Quick pace, ridiculous story, lots of topless ladies, a low budget stretched a long way, interesting acting by a good cast, ancient computers, beautiful Hawaii scenery, horribly hilarious "old man" make-up, cocaine hidden in a pineapple, awesome 80's fashions, a quick Andy Sidaris appearance (the CB radio operator), tight t-shirts and short shorts.
These type of films aren't for everybody, but my life would be sadder without them.
