Sight and Sound
Rating: 3/4 -- The slang is even more outdated than the sexual politics, but all of the performers shine with colorful characterizations, particularly Hart, Prentiss, and Gorshin. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- A guilty pleasure if ever there was one.
Las Vegas Review-Journal
[A] surprisingly frank sand-swim-sex favorite...
has a lot of heart... fantastic cast Full Review
Out of the Past
Rating: B- -- Naive, unintentionally campy comedy about four girls, who set to Florida during spring break for some fun; Connie Francis' title song became a huge hit. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- 1960s spring break film focuses on drinking and sex. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:
Four coeds from snowbound Penmore U. know that the only place to be during Spring Break is Where the Boys Are. The rites (and wrongs) of the spring migration of thousands of college students to sunny Fort Lauderdale are celebrated in an era-defining film that combines a cast of 1960s up-and-comers with youthful hijinks and a cautionary will-she-or-won't-she storyline of sex and romance. Among the girls seeking the perfect tan and man are Dolores Hart, Yvette Mimieux, Paula Prentiss and Connie Francis (who also performs the hit title tune and the zippy "Turn on the Sunshine"). Among the guys: George Hamilton, Jim Hutton and Frank Gorshin. So many chances for love. So little time!
Four young women sharing a hotel room in Fort Lauderdale during spring break also share a common desire - to meet boys. The original beach party classic.
This classic "spring break" movie follows the exploits of a group of Ivy League college girls on the prowl for fun, sun, and eligible males on the beaches of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
