Lonely and looking to reignite old friendships, mousy Sugar invites three friends from her college days to take a week’s vacation at a beach house on the North Carolina shore. Lorelei seems up for anything but is still obsessed by her ex-b.f. Glamazon receptionist Dee-Dee is having an affair with a woman who has a b.f. already, while prim schoolteacher Donna, the Charlotte of the bunch in “Sex and the City” terms, is still single.
As the days pass, the women amuse themselves, sunbathing, mixing cocktails and adopting blond wigs and joke persona’s when they go to get groceries. It’s clear they have less in common than they used to, and Sugar has a crush on Dee-Dee, who would rather make out in the shower with Lorelei, but everyone’s having a good enough time.
The fun ends abruptly after the four drop acid together and someone is found dead the next morning. –Variety
I love how this was made in NC. It captured the sense of melancholy I get every time I visit the Carolina shores. There was so much that I enjoyed about this flick that I won't be able to fit in this short comment. I adore the style, the influences, the four chicks, the color, the turns in the narrative, the existentialism, the sexual transgressions. Also, it contains my favorite masturbation scene in recent memory.
