So I tried to watch Party Monster today; I thought it would be fun to see the club kid fashions now that they're weeks away from becoming fashionable again) and crazy drug-induced antics. However, the acting/pacing/everything else was intolerable! Goodness gracious. Bad, bad, bad. I shut that down about 20 minutes in and searched Netflix Watch Instantly for something more suitable on this lovely Sunday afternoon. I FOUND IT.
"I want a bachelor of art, not a bachelor of bikinis!" Bob Denver teaching Nancy some tantric shiz.
For Those Who Think Young seems to be your average beach party adventure, but it mostly takes place indoors, where a lot of weird hijinks happen. Highlights: there's a part where one guy eats a whole lot of ice cream in an old-school Baskin Robbins, and a different part where you have to watch this other guy's 1964-raunchy stand-up act for like half the movie. Hot chicks, great costumes, lots of those ceramic wall fish and netting, Bob Denver looking like a Mission District hipster, a hirsutey surfing main character named DING, and Nancy Sinatra with dark brown hair! Oh, and Paul Lynde! Lowlights: none. This movie actually has everything, except a reasonable plot. It's so great, you guys, seriously.
