Hey, if we all get our acts together and get vaccinated and remain vigilant, we could be back on the beach recreating scenes from these lighthearted, sun-drenched trifles before you know it. Volleyball? Sure! Surfing? Definitely! Romance? Up to you! These blasts from the past should offer some motivation. (Pictured: Beach Blanket Bingo)

Tuff Turf

Directed by Fritz Kiersch

Teen Movie - Rated R - 112 Minutes - 1985

The influence of B-movie juvenile delinquent dramas from the '50s is evident in this B-grade juvenile delinquent drama from the '80s. When his father's stock crashes, Connecticut WASP Morgan Hiller (James Spader) and his family relocate to a tough Los Angeles barrio. He soon finds himself the target of Nick, a belligerent bully. To complicate matters, Morgan falls hopelessly in love with Nick's girlfriend (Kim Richards). The ludicrous plot, embarrassing dialogue, uniformly bad method acting, and multiple musical montages actually add to Tuff Turf's appeal; without these special qualities, it would be another expensive, bland Hollywood flop rather than a low-budget flop full of verve and personality. (Available on Prime Video and Tubi)
