Rating: 3/5 -- Weirdly entertaining little retro flashback, full of bizarre cameos and endearingly goofball music.
Rating: 4/5 -- A bouncy, high-energy spoof and one of the best movie musicals of the last couple of decades.

Rating: 3/5 -- Silly fun.
Rating: 3/4 -- "Back to the Beach" is, by no means, a deep and thought-provoking motion picture, [but] when you're dealing with Frankie and Annette, what more could you ask for? Full Review
Rating: 2/5 -- Face it, it just doesn't work
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
Rating: 2/5 -- Silly, but with some great one-liners.
Rating: 3.5/4 -- This movie absolutely blind-sided me. I don't know what I was expecting from Back to the Beach, but it certainly wasn't the funniest, quirkiest musical comedy since Little Shop of Horrors. Full Review
Description by OLDIES.com:
Breakdancing may have replaced The Twist in the intervening years, but Frankie and Annette still know how to have a good time as well as teach their own '80s new-wave children a thing or two in the process.
