Ever wanted to see Johnny naked? You get to see everything but his "twigs & berries" in this one...same with co-star Rob Morrow! Despite a decent cast & some genuine funny parts, the movie is pretty weak & very dated.
Morrow and Depp: The National Lampoons of 80's Sex Comedies
(5 out of 5 stars)
"What more can you say about PRIVATE RESORT than SEX?!?!? The opening scene contains more nudity than a topless strip club! Wanna know what the plot is? Well, after watching the first 5 miutes of the film, I figured it out. Ben (pre-Northern Exposure Rob Morrow) and Jack (then unknown Johnny Depp) spend a summer at a private beach resort, and they have only one thing on their minds: sex! Why wouldn't they? There's only about 50 half-naked women running around and approximately 7 men! Plenty of girls to go around! But of course Ben the nerd has his heart set on finding his one true love. Jack the player just wants to get laid. But what 80's teen movie would be complete without these two guys stripping down as well?!? Were you disappointed that Edward Scissorhands didn't show a little skin? Well get ready for "In the Buff" Johnny. And is that nudie patootie over there Dr. Joel Fleischmen from "Northern Exposure"? Yep. I'll bet Rob's wishing he NEVER made this movie. I guess that's why he's taken on more serious roles lately, like in LAST DANCE and THE DAY LINCOLN WAS SHOT. Mr. Morrow has more nude scenes than Johnny! Luckily Rob looks just as good as Johnny does in this movie. Yep, Rob runs in his birthday suit through the hallways of a very prestigious hotel, and runs into some trouble with a jewel thief trying to get his hands on a precious diamond necklace belonging to one of the guests staying at the hotel. In fact, Morrow outshines Depp in his movie debut. If you want classic Morrow and naked Depp, you'll find it on PRIVATE RESORT!!! END"
Oldie but Goodie Teen Movie of the 80s

"This is one of my Favs of the 80s. Not the best story line, or the best jokes, but parts of this movie really make me laugh. Basically two guys are spending a weekend in a resort doing nothing but trying to get laid, but in the process are getting nothing but trouble. Just one of my favorites, one of those 80s classics. May not live up to what some people expect from a movie anymore, but for it's time, it was funny up there with Animal House,The Nerds, and Porkys. Buy it only if you are a fan of 80s flicks as mentioned above and can just relax."
THE STARS BEFORE THEY WERE STARS

"This movie is an all time favorite. Me and my brothers watched this movie hundreds of times since it's release in '85. When I first saw Depp in 21 jumpstreet I was like "That's Jack". I've been a Depp fan ever since. The movie itself is hilarious. Everyone remembers titles such as REVENGE OF THE NERDS and PORKY'S but this was and '80's movie that was slept on. Of course Depp turned into a very, very good actor and unlike alot of today's stars his old movies like this one weren't bad. Even Andrew "DICE" Clay is in it before he was "THE DICEMAN".Hector Elizondo is in it as well as the infamous MAESTRO. He's hella funny! If I were you I'd watch it but either way this movie is a family classic! Oh yeah I was only 9 years old when I first saw this. Don't let your kids see this!"
