Love it
7 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

Beach House is just a fun movie. It is one movie in my VHS collection that I will never give up. My wife and I love to watch it when we're lazing on a Saturday afternoon. If you're from Philly and went down the shore as a teen (which I am and did) you'll love it too. But don't just watch it once, watch it a few times because it grows on you. Scenes from the Jersey Turnpike, Jersey Shore, Ocean City and the bars there of the late seventies. The soundtrack music is excellent, Ramones-like punk and other great catchy tunes with a late 70's early 80's feel. The comrodory within the cast is great. There's lots of catchy phrases in it that stick with you. Kate ("a little lower") McNeil went on to star in many other movies and TV shows, the mini-series "North and South" being one. If there's any Beach House cast out there reading this, please drop me a line to let me know what you've been up to. I feel like I know you guys.
