Beach Bunnies (1992)
from Scoopy Jr
Until recently, I thought I was the only person ever to see the movie
"Buford's Beach Bunnies"! Back in my video store days, I was
given a preview copy of this movie to evaluate it to determine the
number of copies I wanted to buy for my store. Needless to say, like
many video store buyers...the answer was "0". Here's the
scoop...the "star" of "BBB" is Tom Hanks' brother,
Jim. He looks and sounds like his famous brother, but I think it's
safe to say only one Hanks will ever be polishing Oscars!
|It's basically a titty flick that was obviously made to try to
cash in on the Hanks name and Jim's likeness of his famous brother. I
remember Jim actually having a few moments on screen that weren't too
bad (kinda reminded me of "Bachelor Party" Tom), but other
than that, it's just a low-budget excuse to get nekkid chicks on film.

| If you can find it anywhere, it's worth a look just to see the
similarity between the Hanks brothers. From certain angles, and when
certain lines are delivered, you will do a double take.
Quite substantial nudity, from six
- Bettina Brancato, breast and bum views.
- Caitlin Levitsky, topless only with Jim Hanks in the background.
- Monique Parent, topless scenes, a sex scene, and a scene with Jim.
Brando, gets it on with Jimbo. You can really see the family
Webb, topless, and another example of the family looks.
- Suzanne Ager, topless and thong views.
enough, it was available on laserdisc!
Scoop's notes: I haven't
seen this, but I love the character names. Some of the women are
named: Lauren Beatty, Amber Dextrous, and Beula Lugosi. Two
esteemed officials of the law enforcement contingent are named
Sargeant Pepper, and Judge Rhinehole.
guideline: 7.5 usually indicates a level of
excellence, about like three and a half stars
from the critics. 6.0 usually indicates lukewarm
watchability, about like two and a half stars
from the critics. The fives are generally not
worthwhile unless they are really your kind of
material, about like two stars from the critics.
Films under five are generally awful even if you
like that kind of film, equivalent to about one
and a half stars from the critics or less,
depending on just how far below five the rating
guideline: A means the movie is so good it
will appeal to you even if you hate the genre. B means the movie is not
good enough to win you over if you hate the
genre, but is good enough to do so if you have an
open mind about this type of film. C means it will only
appeal to genre addicts, and has no crossover
appeal. D means you'll hate it even if you
like the genre. E means that you'll hate it even if
you love the genre. F means that the film is not only
unappealing across-the-board, but technically
inept as well.
Based on this
description, this film is a C as a titty film. If you don't like
titty films, it isn't for you.
