A group of Midwest girls head down to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida for spring break.
The movie that put the Break into Spring, Where the Boys Are inspired thousands of college kids to seek sun, surf, and even s-e-x on the beaches of Florida. A bevy of co-eds (including foxy Yvette Mimieux and delightful Paula Prentiss, in her film debut) make for Fort Lauderdale, finding fun but also quite a bit of heavy-breathing drama. It's a little like a dressier, glossed-up version of the Problems with Today's Youth movies that were filling up the drive-ins of the era. The movie's actually pretty frank for 1960, although these days the lightweight stuff with Prentiss and Jim Hutton holds up best. There's also Connie Francis, who plays one of the college girls and croons the great title tune (which belongs on anybody's mix tape of classic teen-beach music). The film was remade, with vague Orwellian overtones, as Where the Boys Are 84, a truly dismal effort. --Robert Horton

This is a real throwback to my teenage years. Although it isn't in the category with today's million dollar productions, it will always be one of my favorites.Published 4 days ago by Karen Edmondson
One of my all time favs since I was a child!!
My 10 year old granddaughter loves it too !
dated but this movie is one of the first romances I went to see with a bunch of girlfriends, I think we were all 14 years old. So this purchase was purely a trip down memory lane.Published 1 month ago by book lover 162
