Audience Member Love this fun naturist flick Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a series of vignettes that unfold on a nude beach in Australia. I watched it because I heard it had a good "screenplay." In fact, it was pretty awful, but it did have a few endearing qualities, not least in its central figure, played throughout entirely togless. The nudity actually translated to metaphorical nakedness on rare occasion, but without saving the film from being generally unfunny and tedious. However, the movie had magical powers, because the fact of my watching it last night produced six Australians as customers at my workplace today, two of whom were cute, one of which laid down $160 on books. Yay, Oz! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member [size=5][b]Maslin Beach [/b][/size] Directed by: Wayne Groom [img]http://cache.cinemanow.com/images/boxart/175/maslin_beach_175.jpg[/img] Hmm, so basically, take your typical indie quasi-romantic comedy, and then place it on Australia's most popular nude beach. That's pretty much all there is to this silly, nor particularly well acted, but none-the-less difficult to dislike little comedy. It's got more then a few belly laughs and a lot of chuckles, and a lot of relationship discussion that seems more earnest because everybody is naked. Anyhow, some parts of it are just really cute in spite of themselves. Other then the weird angle of the movie taking place on a nude beach, there isn't anything even remotely unique about this movie, but I can't say I wasn't smiling through the thing. I guess the girls were cute, even though you had go see a lot of naked guys to make up for it.

Paul Newman and Robert Redford play the most lovable pair of bandits this side of the screen. Together with Redford's girlfriend, who may like Newman just as much, they make a lot of mischief, rob a lot of banks, and basically try to lead the good life. Gone are any notions of fairness to the people they steal from or, eventually, kill, none of this "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother" crap, it's all just about the good times. Of course, the banks and the people represent "the system," and are thus worthy of death, so just sit back and enjoy it. I may sound like I'm bashing the movie, I'm really not. You just kind of have to take the concept and run with it. The famous bicycle scene is wonderful, and I howled at the "knife fight" between Newman and his would-be successor as head of the game. Katherine Ross is even more attractive then usual, and, what can I say? In spite of the fact the story is ridiculous, I rooted for them the entire way. This movie could never have been made at any time but the late 60's. But I'm glad it was. [size=4][i]8.5[/i][/size] Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Read all reviews
