Product Description

The 1980’s left quite the stamp on Pop Culture but none more so than the 80’s sex comedy. These films dominated drive-in’s and became late night cable favorites. One of the most beloved franchises of the 80’s was the Hardbodies film series! Both films quickly became cult classics but never received the DVD release that the fans requested…until now! For the first time ever both films will be packaged together and available on DVD! No other films captured the 80’s beach party scene like Hardbodies and this set is sure to become one of the most anticipated releases for 80’s enthusiasts!

This review is only of Hardbodies #1.

One of the best NAKED movies to come from the 80's. It has a good handful of gorgeous women; most of them look just like your everyday gal. It has sex, nudity and the plot is actually funny! Good actors, good scenes, good dialog and an upbeat pace that keeps you interested. Hey, even the music is good.

The nudity is exactly what it should be: stupid and funny. The photo shoot scenes is the best. 6 lovely women, 5 of them topless and 10 boobs. This scene alone should have definitely won an award. And then there's the fitness scene staring the gym girls. One woman shakes her breasts so fast and hard that you'd think that someone set them on fire! Other scenes include a beach dog that steals a bikini top and 2 girls standing topless in front of a mirror asking each other "Why do guys like boobs?"

The picture quality is great. Clear enough with vivid colors. Not completely clear or perfect but you definitely won't see anything like this on vhs. The sound quality is just as good.

If you grew up during the 80's then do yourself a favor and get it. They don't have the guts to make movies like this anymore. This was the pre AIDS era when having care free sex was still accepted and this movie reflects it.
If you're only going to by one movie this year then buy this one... also.

Welcome back to the 80's folks 1984 to be exact.And from the vaults comes this classic 80's sex comedy thanks to the folks at Anchor Bay Hardbodies. The 1986 sequel is included in the set but I'm here to talk about the original.Back in the 80's teen sex comedies were all the rage and Hardbodies would be in the upper echelon of the genre.The story opens with us meeting Scotty Palmer a young beach bum type about to be evicted from his dumpy apartment.Scotty is one of those guys floating thru life trying to find themselves,He's got a hot hardbodied girlfriend Kristi that he's crazy about.Hardbodies the term itself applies to a young woman(usually) that has a tight toned body .You can thank Jane Fonda from the era for introducing that look.Not that I'm complaining mind you nor should you.Anyhow he's on the beach with best bud Rag looking to come up with a plan to save his apartment.lo and behold enter 3 middle aged guys Hunter,Rounder and Ashby who arrive in L.A. looking to score chicks.The 3 guys dubbed "fossils" by the locals strike out big time in their efforts to meet hotties.They end up meeting Scotty and hire him as their guru(NOT a pimp)to help them score hardbodies.What follows is Scotty teaching the guys the art of the BBD "Bigger,Better.Deal" which was how you scored a girl back in 1984.The guys get success with Hunter really becoming what is now known as a player.Scotty along the way ends up managing an all girl rock band(played by 80's pop metaller's Vixen)and trying to decide if Kristi is the one for him.Kristi in turn wonders about her future and if Scotty is going to grow up and be a part of it.What helps make Hardbodies apart from the pack is that the writing is good enough that you care about these characters.You don't hate Scotty(Grant Cramer) or Kristi(Teal Roberts).Read more ›

It's movies like "Hardbodies" that made an evening out at the drive-in so much fun! I saw this movie back in 1984, and countless times on TV and still really enjoy it. I bought a VHS copy of this movie 2 years ago, and it's been replayed on a regular basis. The California sunshine, the beach, lots of bikinis and the funny characters make this a memorable movie. Basically the plot consists of 3 middle-aged men renting a beach house, and the local dude shows them how to "dialogue" bikini-clad babes known as "hardbodies" on the beach. It's not a serious movie, just lots of fun. It's a movie that you can watch over & over again which makes it a great choice for buying. If you are looking for some light entertainment, and you are a fan of '80s movies, then this one will not disappoint! I hope one of these days that it's released on DVD!

My four star rating of Hardbodies should include a disclaimer for all those considering purchasing this movie. If you're looking for a deep, meaningful film with stellar acting, fascinating and complex characters, and brilliant writing, then save your money. Whoever wrote the script for this film certainly wasn't striving to make Citizen Kane or The Graduate.
My positive rating for this film is for those guys out there who want to see a bevy of beauties flaunting their breasts, mixed with a little bit of humor ... This film is pure 80's T&A, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. They certainly acquired some very beautiful "talent" for this film that is certainly worthy of wearing out the Pause button on your VCR.
The synopsis of the film is three middle aged men in mid-life crises rent a beach house and are having absolutely no success in scoring with the beautiful young women on the beach. So they acquire the help of a young stud to show them how to succeed with these hotties. But one of these guys turns into a jerk and puts the moves on the young stud's girlfriend. Eventually the jerk gets his [come]-uppance, and our hero(?) gets his girl back. Quite a fascinating storyline, huh? The only actor of any note whatsoever in this film is goofy looking redheaded Courtney Gaines, who also starred in Children Of The Corn and Can't Buy Me Love, and had a small part in Back To The Future. Also, there's an early appearence by girl rock group, Vixen, before they grew their hair out and had some success as a metal act in the late 80's!
Beautiful girls and their beautiful breasts are the selling point of this film. Look elsewhere if you want more.
