Joyride (1977) is a typical teensploitation effort. Three friends, boyfriend/girlfriend Melanie Griffeth and Desi Arnaz Jr, and best friend Robert Carradine, decide to head for Alaska and escape their mundane lives. Their dream is to end up owning their own salmon boat. Alaska isn't everything they hoped. Prices are outrageous, their car is broken into and their cash stolen, and they have to take menial jobs. They each get screwed over in some way, and finally decide to strike back, holding up the pipeline payroll office, and taking Anne Lockhart as a hostage.
Griffith, who was 20 at the time, has several topless sex scenes, including a hot tub and a shower scene, and shows her buns mooning a passing car. Lockhart (daughter of June Lockhart) shows breasts in a hot tub and sex scene. There is local color, lots of villains, chase scenes, and plenty of nudity, and I would probably have enjoyed the film more if I liked any of the characters. IMDb readers have it at 3.9 of 10. The only possible reason to watch it is the early nudity from Griffith, who, in my opinion, was much more attractive a few years later, and Lockhart. This is a D. While it has the required elements for the genre, it is a remarkably uninspired effort.

NOTE: because of a unique combination of
circumstances with the Windows media player and some substantial
bandwidth theft, we will have to do all of our movie files in zip
format. Left click on the files as you normally would to view a
you get a choice, click on "save", and put it on your hard drive in
the directory of your choice. UnZIP and play from there.
I know this is not especially convenient, but it
allows the film clips to continue. I can protect .zip files from
hot-linking in the same way I can protect still images. For some
reason, if I protect .avis and .wmvs from hot-linking, they will not
play in the Windows media player, and I can't get a satisfactory
work-around. Perhaps I will find a better solution, but for now this
new policy allows you to continue getting the movie clips you want
to see, which is much preferable to my abandoning the clips

Perhaps these tips will help if you have trouble
with the codecs for these movies:
FYI when I hypercam vids to make the file size smaller I use
DivX MPEG-4 Fast-Motion for the video compressor, then I use
virtualdub to compress the audio. The properties for the
vids says the video codec: DivX Decoder Filter & audio
codec: Morgan Stream Switcher which I'm not familiar with.
When I compress the audio with virtualdub I use MPEG
Layer-3. A friend of mine told me about compressing the
audio about (6) mos. ago. Like I said previously, only been
capping for a year & a half & I'm no expert. Hopefully this
info will help members with the proper codecs for my vids.
When I cap big brother's I use hypercam mostly & sdp &
asfrecorder if the set up allows me. I stopped using
camtasia cause the file sizes were always too big, could
never figure out the process, over my head lol, plus it cost
too much to buy in my opinion.
A reader says:
You mentioned that some users were
having trouble with the videos on your site. There is a tool
designed to determine what codec is needed for a video.
http://www.headbands.com/gspot/ Hope this is useful to you
or your users.
I made the .wmv versions of each video. The codecs for these: Windows Video V8, Windows Audio 9.
The upside of these is that you know the codecs, and they'll play in
the Windows Media Player. The downside is that they are slightly
larger, and slightly lower quality.
NOTE: We currently have to do all of our movie files in zip format. Instead of viewing them online, save the zip files to your hard drive in the directory of your choice, un-zip and play from there.
A couple of quick vids from "Warlords" (1989), the Fred Olen Ray movie starring David Carradine (during his really crappy movie days).
Since this seems to be Michelle Bauer week for the Ghost, why stop now! Bauer is once again topless (only this time in an abduction scene, not a sex scene). Debra Lamb is also topless. You may recognize Lamb as the Fire Eating stripper from "Point Break", "Wild at Heart" and several other movies.

"The Big Bounce"
Sara Foster doesn't save this 2004 comedy, she just makes it a little more bearable, as does Anahit Minasyan (tenant in # 9).
Owen Wilson does his usual crappy job as a surfer/con man who goes to Hawaii and gets a job as a caretaker for a judge on the island. This gets him involved trying to rip off a real estate tycoon, while falling for the tycoon's beautiful "kept woman" (Foster).
Some funny bits don't make this dog hunt. It's pure garbage, but Foster and Minasyan are worth a long look.
