Editorial Reviews

Midwestern kid Monroe Clark (C. Thomas Howell, The Outsiders) moves to Los Angeles to intern for his lawyer uncle (Terry Kiser, Weekend at Bernie’s). But Monroe ends up hanging out at the beach instead and finds himself in the beach volleyball scene. Suddenly, Monroe gets teamed up with former King of the Beach Zack Barnes (Peter Horton, 2 Days in the Valley) to compete in the biggest tournament in the sport. Featuring several volleyball greats – including Randy Stoklos and Sinjin Smith – and Courtney Thorne-Smith (TV’s “According to Jim”), SIDE OUT is a fast-paced and energetic movie.

This would have been THE movie for beach volleyball, filmed in Manhattan Beach, has appearances from Sinjin Smith, Steve Timmons, Randy Stoklos, all the major pros of the time. Very fun to watch. Great movie except that the very last scene, without spoiling it for you, makes everyone who plays beach volleyball cringe because they end it with a very illegal hand set. This movie had so much potential but became the laughing stock of the beach crowd because of those 3 seconds of footage right before the credits roll. Too bad the film's editor didn't catch that, this would have been a much more popular movie.

I've liked this movie for the longest time, it has a Rocky type of ending to it,the two unseeded players beating the number one seeded players,very exciting ending, the biggest point in the match other than the final one was when Rolo and Cross missed the overhead shot and hit it into the net,that was my favorite part of the match other than the ending,it has alot of big name people from the old days in it like Terry Kiser,Kathy Ireland,C Thomas Howell,Peter Horton,Courtney-Thorne Smith,Tony Burton,overall this isn't a great movie but a very good movie, alot better than some of the trashy movies they have out nowadays, also Courtney-Thorne Smith looked incredible in this, the best i have ever seen her in any movie or tv show shes been in.

The best line in this movie is when Steve O'Bradovich says "nice hit cheese dick" to C Thomas Howell during a match. And that line sums up this surprisingly fun and cheesy movie. Is the acting great? No however there's something about this movie that just pulls you in and let's you enjoy 90 minutes of simple and fun entertainment. Eighties music, neon clothing and some entertaining volleyball scenes with actual Pro Beach Volleyball Stars from that time period. By the end of the movie it has a "Rudy" like feeling to it and you end up really rooting for the unexpected bond that Peter Horton and C Thomas Howell share as teammates.

There aren't many volleyball movies for whatever reason, and none of the few I found looked very interesting to me, but I decided to try this one and I'm glad I did. There was a bit too much other stuff going on (I was just interested in the volleyball), but they used actual volleyball players for the movie so it was actually pretty fun to watch.

Honestly, if I could give it 3 and a half, I would. It is a solid little 80's movie, that I honestly enjoy watching from time to time. I remember watching a ton when I first saw it on one of the cable networks. I liked it enough years later to buy a copy. It's not a fantastic movie, but it is just a solid and enjoyable movie to watch. Nothing more and nothing less.

I can't believe I'm reviewing this, but after seeing it again after so many years it just struck me......eeeekkk! It is one of the quintessential 80's films but was released in 1990. Oh and it's all their, bad hair, bad clothes, bad sayings, bad music. And of course set at the beach, there is a lot of skin. It's actually not a bad story, C. Thomas Howell plays a wannabe lawyer out in California for the summer working for his uncle. On his first assignment, giving eviction notices, he meets Peter Horton (from beloved "thirtysomething" fame) and they become volleyball partners in the big tournament. It sounds bizarre but works as only those '80s movies can. Courtney Thorne-Smith and Harley Jane Kozak support the cast, as does Terry Kiser who plays another Bernie but doesn't get killed this time! Oh what fun and pain at the same time to watch this movie and remember that this is what it used to be like back in the 80's! So now I've written the review, and if you come across Side Out in the video store it won't disappoint.

A MUST HAVE MOVIE FOR THE 90's BEACH VOLLEYBALL FAN. AN ENTERTAINING FAMILY FUTURE STARTING WITH MOST OF THE REAL BEACH VOLLEYBALL PLAYERS CAMEOS, INCLUDING THE KING OF THE BEACH DUO FOR THOSE TIMES, RANDY STOCKLOS AND SINJIN SMITH, AS THE UNBEATABLE RIVAL TEAM.

A somewhat cheesy 80s tale about a kid (C. Thomas Howell) who starts his summer in Los Angeles working for his lawyer uncle and then turns to volleyball contesting with a washed out pro (Peter Horton). Supporting roles by Kathy Ireland and Courtney Thorne-Smith though the former is very little and she isn't wearing her usual bikini. There's lots of skin, sun and beach as well as volleyball games especially at the end. Barely entertaining. Eighties music galore and those horrible outfits and hair styles date it.

CHARACTERS/DIALOGUE: C plus to B minus; STORY/PLOTTING: C plus; DELIVERS ON WHAT IS PROMISES (skin, sun & sand): B minus; WHEN WATCHED: mid May 2012; OVERALL GRADE: C plus.
