"Back To The Beach" is a brilliant satire of the Frankie and Annette "Beach Party" films of the 1960's.  It is full of laughs, great songs (California Sun, Jamaica Ska and Surfer Bird) and makes good use of Californian beach locations. Frankie and Annette are in top form poking fun at their own personas and the supporting cast of Lori Loughlin, Connie Stevens, Don Adams & Pee Wee Herman add to the fun. This time round Frankie and Annette are happily married with two kids, their son is a wannabe punk rocker, complete with flick knife, while their teenage daughter lives in an LA beach house with her surfer boyfriend.  The plot thickens when Frankie and Annette head "Back To The Beach" to visit their daughter who has kept her boyfriend a secret. "Back To The Beach" is a great piece of nostalgia that complements the 1960's "Beach Party" series. This film was the perfect vehicle for Frankie & Annette's return to the surf and a fitting finale that allows them to hang up their surfboards in style. "Back To The Beach" is highly recommended summer fun that both adults and their kids can enjoy.
