The Odd and the Bad
This addition to the "Teens at Summer Resort" genre is both bad and odd. Firstly, it isn't funny and adding Frank Gorshin (billed as "Mr. Frank Gorshin" Salute that!) into the mix to add humor fails miserably. Gorshin has nothing funny to do. The film is also badly cast in the four male leads--all of them are dull, even Bronson Pinchot who seems uncomfortable playing the street-savvy, suave New Yorker ladies man. What's odd is the film starts out as a zany and vulgar comedy, but by the end it's all sweet natured, romantic and straight-laced. Odd also that the best actors and characters in the film, two females the boys meet played by Casey Nye and Dana Kaminsky, appear in the middle of the film then disappear soon after. A sad waste. And there is one moment of eye-popping nudity from Kaminsky who reveals an amazingly large chest on such a small gal. Otherwise, this is a waste of time.
