Back to The Beach (1987)

Back to the Beach Quote: “You sure have wasted an incredible pair of hooters.” – Connie


Bust out your surfboards and Stunned Mullets, we’re going “Back to The Beach” with Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello! This 1987 parody of ’60s movies packed in appearances from OJ Simpson, PeeWee Herman, the casts of “Leave It to Beaver” and “Gilligan’s Island,” Dick Dale, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and the “two dollars” kid from “Better Off Dead.”

This edition of Shat The Movies explores the importance of following through on threats, deal breakers in dating, Big D’s mall walking, and East Coast vs West Coast beaches.

Ash and Big D crush Gene’s ideas on parenthood while revealing a fear of losing their identities as they age. Dick body-shames beachgoers and Gene explains why you should seek a partner you fear.

Note: Gene survived a car accident 30 minutes before recording this podcast, then proceeded to down a double whiskey.

Plot Summary: “Back to the Beach” 1950s movie darlings Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello take a break from their normal Midwestern routine to visit their daughter at her southern California beach apartment. At first, bewildered by the new wave lifestyle they encounter, Frankie and Annette soon join the fun to become a beach couple of the 1980s.
