Movie Info

Three middle-aged men take off for the beach in search of sex and happiness in this comedy that does not think much, and so it partly is. When the three older men arrive at the sea and surf, sex is not exactly forthcoming because they have lost the knack of picking up women. Enter the local hunk Scotty (Grant Kramer) who brings them up to speed, and, voilà, the men are miraculously able to overcome their obvious flaws and attract the younger women they desire. Even though they are together, the three men are not alike -- Hunter (Gary Wood) is a dedicated lecher and when he gets involved with Scotty's girlfriend Kristie (Teal Roberts), trouble starts to brew. Rounder (Michael Rapaport) is likeable and funny, and Ashby (Sorrells Picard) finally opts out of their joint venture. Most of these characters and their sexual hang-ups and interests and humor soon pale like a tan in winter, long before the last sunset has faded into night.

Critic Reviews for Hardbodies

...somewhat watchable yet mostly forgettable...

April 12, 2021 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Rather than being fun and sexy, the movie is mostly awkward, uncomfortable, and too severe to be enjoyable.

Audience Reviews for Hardbodies


Its been many a year since I last saw this T & A romp and apparently I saw it alot more than I realized because not only could I quote the movie here and there I actually found myself singing the theme song. Its the epitome of 80's sleeze in a purely fun way. There were even a few surprises this time 'round: Kane Hodder plays a small role called 'Older Geek' and he was a stunt coordinator. Kathleen Kinmont plays a hot, hot skater. And the song Party Time mostly known from Return of the Living Dead is in the film twice.
