Private Resort (1985)
Private Resort is about two teenage boys (Johnny Depp in his second movie,
Rob Morrow in his first) staying at an exclusive private Florida resort for
the weekend. Depp wants to get laid, Morrow wants to find true love. Neither
counts on jewel thieves, over-zealous house detectives, Nazi hotel barbers, a
cock-teasing Baba Rama Yama worshiper, Andrew Dice Clay as a womanizing Alpha
male and various other misadventures.
Morrow falls instantly in love with waitress Emily Longstreth. In Depp's
attempt to get lucky, he gets Morrow into one scrape after another. Hector
Elizondo plays "The Maestro," a man who charms wealthy widows and then robs
them. In this case, Dody Goodman is his target. She proves to be all he can
handle with her kung fu skills and a liberal supply of Quaaludes. She is the
grandmother of Hilary Shapiro (the Baba Yaba Rana girl), and the designated
sexpot, Karyn O'Bryan. Also watch for Christopher Wynne as a Spicoli
Much of the humor is physical. In one scene, an ugly woman is convinced
that the house detective is about to molest her, so she sics her two small,
yappy dogs on him. That, in itself, is funny, but when he snaps them with a
used condom, it gets me rolling on the floor every time. In fact, the first
time I saw this film, without benefit of expert critics telling me how bad it
was, I laughed so hard it took 10 minutes to recover enough to to rewind the
tape and watch it again the same night.
In terms of nudity, it is T & A from Hilary Shapiro, Leslie Easterbrook and
Vickie Benson, breasts and/or buns from several unknowns, and a long bra and
panties scene with Lisa London.
IMDb readers say 5.6, but IMDb has lowered the score to 4.2. This does mark
a gain of a full point over when I reviewed the VHS version. Ebert hated it,
and Maltin called it a bomb. I recall seeing a Siskel Ebert episode where they
were decrying the glut of bad teen sex movies where the adults were stupid and
the kids knew everything. They were specifically talking about Breakfast Club,
Secret Admirer and Sixteen Candles. Given my opinion of those three films, it
is not at all surprising that I also disagree with them on Private Resort. In
fact, critics should not even attempt to review genres they hate. Teen sex
comedies are my sort of film. This one, for me, ranks right up there with Hot
Dog - The Movie, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast
Club, Secret Admirer, Porky's, and several others. It has an excellent cast,
lots of nudity, Rob Morrow in drag, what I found to be hilarious comedy
timing, and believable motives from all of the characters. The newly released
DVD version has no features, but sports a very clean transfer. This is a clear
C+. If you like these, you will love this particular one. If you don't, go
rewatch Citizen Freaking Kane and leave me alone.
You readers may not have thought of this, because
it's not top of mind stuff, but Private Resort also represents a landmark in
male nudity. It features Johnny Depp naked, and Depp has gone on to become
about the most idolized male star since Clark Fucking Gable. Rob Morrow also
went on to become at least a B-level star, and he got naked as well.
Curiously, although Depp and Morrow hit the big time,
their success fever seems to have been a disease that only affected the male
members of the cast. All of the women remained enmired in genre movies,
although some had lengthy careers. (Leslie Easterbrook is still at it, still
working regularly and getting decent-sized roles. Lisa London and Hilary
Shapiro are still givin' it the old college try.)

Dann reports on Nude per l'assassino:
This is my kind of murder mystery: 1975's Italian trash-film Strip Nude
for Your Killer (Nude per l'assassino) may not be the best mystery ever
made, but the film is surprisingly well done, and loaded with nudity.
The plot, probably the weakest part of the
movie, is that a woman dies during an abortion. She is a model, and soon,
the doctor who botched the operation, and co-workers from the model
agency, come down with fatal cases of stabbed-to-death. The stabber is a
helmet-wearing motorcyclist, and since the police are clueless, a young
female photographer (Edwige Fenech) decides to do some sleuthing,
aided by her boyfriend, also a photographer at the agency.
A well-done production, dubbed in English,
and very enjoyable despite a fairly predictable ending. Unless you hate
beautiful women naked, you'll probably like this one.
Pat's comments in yellow...
The New York Post reports that two researchers from Columbia Business School
discovered that you will be happier in the long run if you give in to
temptation. They said people think it's hard to be good, but actually, most
people over-control and find it harder to indulge their desires. Their study
found that when someone bought something expensive, ate sweets or slept with
someone hot, they felt guilty at first. But as time passed, the guilt quickly
dissipated. Conversely, people who denied themselves tended to regret it more
and more. By the time people reached 80, the things they most regretted weren't
their "sins," but the times they ordered salad instead of dessert, or said no to
* It's a Catch-22...What if ordering the salad and saying
no to the sex
was helped you LIVE to 80?
Researchers for the Oxford University Press compiled a list of the most
commonly-used nouns in English. The top 10, from 1 to 10, were "time, person,
year, way, day, thing, man, world, life, hand." Some observations: people are
obsessed with "time," which was #1, with "year" at #3, "day" at #5 and "week" at
#17. "Work" was #16, while "rest" and "play" didn't make the top 100. "War"
ranked 49th, but "peace" wasn't in the top 100. As much as people obsess about
it, "money" only ranked #65. And "Man" was #7, while "child" was #12, and
"woman" way down at #14.
