Movie Reviews

One liners, double entendres, handful of breasts
K. Gittins | CA USA | 05/29/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Son of the Beach" is everything it promises to be, and more, or less. It centers around the Malibu Adjacent "Shore Patrol Force" (SPF-30) team of lifeguards who save the day in one form or another in every goofy episode.

The characters have names such as BJ Cummings, Jamaica St. Croix (with a sister named Montego Bay), Kimberly Clark, and leader Notch Johnson. The town mayor is Anita Massengil. Guest star characters include Walter Koenig as "General Dimitri Sukitov", Pat Morita as "King Kumonya", Victoria Silvsted as "Eva Rommel" (sister of SPF 30 member "Chip Rommel") Erik Estrada as "Seymour Wences", Alan Thicke as "Captain Entenille", and various others such as the Latina temptress "Labia", the Mermaid "Areola", and the Asian villainess "Rucy Ru".

Episode titles include "South of Her Border", "A Star is Boned", "Attack of the Cocktopuss", and "Two Thongs Don't Make A Right".

If the character names and titles aren't enough fodder for puns and one-liners, they also throw in locations such as Humidor and Begonia, an island volcano named "Mt. Maheinie", and make references as silly as "super, Mario" (to the supposed janitor), or parodies of "The Wild One" in which BJ asks co-virgin Neil Patrick Harris if he wants to come into her pink trailer which, he remarks, "smells fresh, like a summer's eve".

It is as silly as it sounds, and that is the humor. If you expect more, you might be disappointed. But, for silly funny humor it gets 5 stars.

Under-rated show finally gets respect
Chris Busch | Baltimore. MD | 06/14/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Once "The Shield" became popular, the cable channel FX decided it was too good to air Son of the Beach and cancelled the show. I thought this was a shame...I always thought the show was clever and under-rated, and always fun to watch. Now the show has made it to DVD.
This 3-disc set contains the first 21 episodes from seasons 1 and 2 of the show. The episodes are all hilarious...if you like one, you'll like them all.
There's also some nice extras...there's a funny outtakes reel, and behind the scenes stuff. If you like women wearing next to nothing, there's several new "montages" (Montages being the moments on the show where the characters stop and say "now what would THAT be like?") The best extras are the commentaries on several episodes by Tim Stack, the producers, and assorted cast members. It's clear they had a fun time making the show, and it's interesting to hear them talk about it. I highly recommend this boxset, and I hope they release the rest of seasons 2 and 3."
So stupid, but you can't help laughing
N. Durham | Philadelphia, PA | 09/21/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"From Howard Stern's production company, Son of the Beach is a more than inspired parody of Baywatch and then some, and just as you would expect from anything involved with Howard Stern, Son of the Beach is juvenile, politically incorrect, full of ... inuendo and puns, and is incredibly hilarious. Timothy Stack (from the short lived but equally funny Night Stand with Dick Dietrich) plays Notch Johnson; the world's greatest lifeguard who, with his crew of hard bodied lifeguards (including ... Jamie Bergman) outwit the mafia, assassins, and lots of other baddies, while featuring a plethora of guest stars (including The Sopranos Vincent Pastore, Alan Thicke, David Arquette, Lucas Haas, Neil Patrick Harris, and Gilbert Gottfried among others). The humor may be too juvenile for many, but fans of the Howard Stern show or just low brow comedy in general will definitely have a blast with this sadly short lived series."
A show that any man would love, and some women
Ryan Anonymus | Olympia, WA | 11/22/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There weren't too many shows like this one on the air, most companies would be afraid to make it. It takes everything that people love about Baywatch and puts it out there, the way you want to see it.

This show was cancelled during its third season. This box set includes season one, and the first half of season two. One more box set would complete the series, but due to low sales of this set, volume two will never be released. Too bad, 'cause all the episodes that I remember seeing were on this set. I recall seeing a commercial for a Matrix parody episode, but never saw it. It would have been one of the twenty or so on box set two.
