Summer Job Film Details
Overview: A less-than-elite group of college coeds pursue sexual adventure and bits of revenge, and actually do some of the work they are expected to do at a resort over the summer.
Review: “Summer Job” isn’t as bad as it might have been, which I realise is small praise. But when you watch enough ’80s boob comedies, you learn to appreciate small miracles. The set up, if anyone actually cares, is that a group of teens (who all look much older – one even has a receding hairline) get a job at a hotel over the summer holidays. That’s basically it. The movie wastes little time in showing the girls all in various states of undress, and the receding hairline guy trying to spy on them. The movie does deliver on the T & A, more so than most boob comedies from the ’80s do. But it doesn’t really have any characters – no one has a discernible personality – and no plot either, really. There is some nonsense about a prank war between two of the girls, though you won’t be able to work out which ones. One puts hair dye in the other’s shampoo. There is a silly scene where a boy and girl undress each other on the beach in slow motion. It goes on for so long that you start wondering what they were thinking. Slow motion scenes that last for more than a moment become awkward and embarrassing, as this one does. There is a long lull toward the end of the movie, where we get dialogue from characters the movie has been singularly unable to establish with personalities or make us care about, so watching them talk and listening to what they have to say becomes boring. The movie also takes a long break from showing nudity. And then – oh, god – there’s a live band performance. Why do these movies always have to have one of these? Are they just trying to pad the run time out? The ending, also, completely comes out of nowhere. It’s one of those movies that just ENDS. Characters are talking and doing stuff and then, bam, there’s the credits. They could have ended it anywhere else and it would have been the same.
