Pastiches come off as too self referential from my experience, but after a point it shrugs this off and becomes charming. Shame about the last few minutes thought.
I probably wouldn't have liked this as much if I hadn't taken a class where we screened Gidget and the like. What's even better about this film is it's break from the genre. Lauren Ambrose is deliciously camp in this send-up of surfer flicks.
This movie would have felt funnier if I hadn't seen Die Mommie Die! first. Obviously, more Charles Busch just results in a funnier movie. But worth a watch!
This is the most hilarious film I can think of right now.
I just hope someday decent people will no longer find this sort of sick humor a source of comedy.
Absolutely hilarious. Lauren Ambrose is amazing in this!
Nothing like watching Psycho Beach Party at 7AM
