In the late '80s, good-time girl Stacy (Lea Thompson) and her timid friend, Melissa (Victoria Jackson), decide to hit a health spa for singles in hopes of spicing up their unfulfilled sex lives. Afraid of AIDS, Stacy has gone celibate, while Melissa has only ever managed to get it on with two lame guys. Arriving at the resort, the women spend their time working out, flirting with staff members, making friends and enemies with their fellow singles, and avoiding the attentions of the oafish Vinny (Andrew Dice Clay). When a cruel psychologist plays mind games with Melissa, she finds solace with Vinny, then flees the spa, interrupting an incipient romance between Stacy and a cute aerobics instructor. Wendy Goldman and Judy Toll adapted their own stage play, while Casual Sex? provided director Genevieve Robert her only feature credit to date.
This is an old movie, so the big hair, bad clothes, and ridiculous pick up lines are par for the course. BUT, it has always been one of my favorites. I have an old VHS copy somewhere, but little good that does anyone these days. On a whim, I searched for it on BB. The copy is decent quality, with zero added frills. It is a load and play, and it will repeat on its own. As a side note, there was always one spot I had thought was edited for television, but it is definitely in the dvd version as well. I wonder what the original line was supposed to be... Anyway, if you haven't seen this movie, you have to. At least once. I mean, it's Andrew Dice Clay! (and where IS that man now?)
