Movie Reviews

Classic Beach Party film
Byron Kolln | the corner where Broadway meets Hollywood | 09/24/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"PAJAMA PARTY is probably the second best-loved sequel of the original BEACH PARTY (the first has to be the quintessential BEACH BLANKET BINGO). The party moves indoors for the wonderful romp with Annette Funicello and the gang.Connie (Annette Funicello) finds herself being chased by a handsome martian from Mars, Go-Go (Tommy Kirk), while trying to save her relationship with the self-obsessed Big Lunk (Jody McCrea). Thankfully, kindly dress-shop owner Aunt Wendy (Elsa Lanchester) is on hand to offer advice to the younger generation about matters of love and the heart.Annette and the gang trade their beach threads for pajamas and baby-dolls in this very cute musical. Annette sings the classic standard "Stuffed Animal", while Donna Loren will have you jumping with "That's The Way It's Done".Then there are fantastic cameos from film veterans Buster Keaton and Don Rickles; while Dorothy Lamour shows she could still 'cut a rug' with the best of them with her infectious number.Interestingly, the "pajama party" of the title doesn't happen until the last 20 minutes of the picture! Followed by BEACH BLANKET BINGO.The DVD has both full-frame and widescreen versions of the film as well as the trailer. (Double-sided, single-layer disc)."
Taken for what it's worth, it's definitely a gem

"No doubt this is the best of the Beach Movies...the only movie from this category that's as good (better, actually) is Ski Party...but good luck getting Ski Party on video, laserdisc or DVD. Enough about Ski Party. Pajama Party (not Rated R, as one reviewer got confused...he mistakenly looked at Playboy's documentary) doesn't play as ditsy unwatchably dumb as some of the others. It doesn't have overly cornball songs that only a 5 year old would enjoy. In Pajama Party, the songs are actually catchy (notably, the intro song, the title song, the Tommy/Annette duet, and of course, Dorothy Lamour's number) and the plot doesn't bore you to tears with thoughtless wandering. This movie is actually entertaining from start to finish. Buster Keaton is great as the cowardly indian chief. Susan Hart is hotter than HOT. Donna Loren is cute and an enjoyable singer, and Toni Basil makes some dancing appearances that are backed by better music. If you're going to get a Beach movie and aren't sure what to choose from, here's something to consider: Buying Pajama Party will make future beach movie purchases disappointing, since no other beach movie compares to Pajama Party (again, except for Ski Party). Then again, if you do buy this movie, you'll definitely have the best one of the bunch. For my taste, Pajama Party is the only beach movie I'll buy. Having it on DVD is a real treat...especially since the music in the movie is so enjoyable (Donna Loren's "Among the Young" is the best song in the movie)."
Pretty much the greatest movie ever.

"This film really could not be improved even if the *entire* thing had featured Bobbi Shaw doing sit-ups by the pool and Susan Hart gyrating to boil punch in its bowl."
Annette in baby out Lolita!

"As Annette finishes singing "Stuffed Animal" to a hulking, multi-colored toy cat, it actually winks at her. This is the kind of movie AIP did best: low-budget, low-brow fun. There are some talky scenes(between Martian Tommy Kirk and Frankie Avalon--shunted off in a cameo), but who cares when you've got Annette, more beautiful here than ever. She's also got some juicy-fruit lines like: "Both you birds belong in a clock!" A gem."
