    Yeah, I liked this movie, but I have a somewhat good reason to request this silly film. If I read my 'Variety' article that Paramount gave us on the restoration tour, Back to the Beach was one of the first films to be preserved (or was it restored?).
    I thought a film of that nature was an unusual candidate.
    Anyway, a slapstick funny film, and Frankie Avalon was hilarious as was everyone else (Bob Denver, Pee Wee Herman, etc.).
    Plus never been available in widescreen.
    Another "good movie" I need, my laserdisc is beginning to wear out.

    Major bump...
    I saw this movie on Starz! Family last week, and I thought it was a cute piece. Light, fluffy, not much to think about while watching...
    The sheer randomness of the thing is so funny (cameos of 50s and 60s TV stars, Pee-Wee Herman performing "Surfing Bird") and this film also contains rare screen appearances by musicians like Fishbone and Stevie Ray Vaughn.
    Please, Paramount, how about it?
    Sincerely,
    John Kilduff...
