It's not the best, but worth a look, and the girls are hot

"This is not on my list of favorite movies, but it is at least enjoyable. And the actor who plays Benny has talent. Where is he now, when we're seeing the same faces over and over in movies? For me, though, the main thing here was the girls. Or one girl in particular. Claudia Kaleem was mucho calliente as the girl of Benny's dreams, but she had nothing on sexy porn star Devin Deray, who made a cameo as a stripper with enormous breasts. If you like 'em big, keep your eyes open for this scene!"
Great great movie

"phat beach is a coming of age story that will enlighten 6 and 60 year old's alike. this was most defently the movie that defined the 90's Brian Hooks was undoubtaly snubbed by the oscar commitie for best supporting actor and coolieo was brilliant, we already knew he was the worlds greatist rapper but to be such a suppieror actor its almost unfair for one man to posses that much tallent. if you never watch phat beach then you would be doing yourself a grave injustice. the acting and writing of this film rival such classics as citizen cane and gremlins."

"This film is a cult classic. The young cast makes for a fresh beach comedy. The white wanna be "Mikey Z" stands out and is very funny. This film delivers more than just the mail. It will make you laugh time and time again. The running feud between "Mikey Z" and the rest of the cast was hysterical."

"I think "Phat Beach" is low budget but very funny. My wife and I cry watching this movie. Can't wait to get it added to my collection on DVD."
