Relax, turn your brain off, and enjoy
This is not meant to be the greatest film ever made However it is a good cult classic and a showcase of what Andy Sidaris films and the Big Girls with Big Guns sub-category of action films that Sidaris and Troma excelled at. It a pure form of the B-Movie in the 80s. Ones that you always saw on the shelves of Mom and Pop video stores. And Andy Sidaris made millions off of these types of films. He started in the 70s as co-director of ABC's Wide World of Sports (That's where the "Back to you Howard" reference comes from) Even early on he had a set stable of actor and actresses as well as characters (The Abilene brothers were introduced in his previous picture Malibu Express which is highlighted here) that he would constantly use up into the late 90s before he retired. So guys, relax and turn off your brains. It's okay. B-Movies sometimes allow you to do that. Just sit back and enjoy the ridiculous fun of it all. It's silly inept fun because, really, it wants to be.
A funny bad movie
Hard Ticket to Hawaii is not the kind of movie you goto TCM for. It is a cheap production that fails in all its goals and at best elicits laughter for you, and does a mighty good job at that. It also of the exploitative nature, I mean you didn't expect Playboy models to be in this for their acting, did you? Perhaps if there was segment featuring god awful films that redeem themselves with their absurdity, it could find its way there. I know I certainly love a bad movie such as Death Wish 3, but I like to keep those platters separate for the sake of my palette.
i enjoy tcm's quality of programing...my wife and i only watch 3-4 channels. i would like to know where this fits in.. its not classic, nor will it ever be..thought i was on the wrong channel..never seen such bad trash on tcm...i know this was a slip-up...someone needs to apologise for this in lu of mr osbournes passing....i rate this-film- at a -10.....
1990's version of a drive-in film
Let's identify these films for what they really are. A '90s-00's version of a drive-in T and A film. I'm not sure why Turner 'Classic' Films is showing these types of films. I'm not sure what is 'classic' about them. The scripts, actors, stunts, etc. are laughable. They certainly won't be mistaken for a classic Bond film like From Russia with Love or Goldfinger. But it's an apple to oranges comparison. These aren't exactly high-brow entertainment.
Relax & Enjoy
