Go To

It was released on May 3, 1985.

Tropes for the film:

  • '80s Hair: The girls in the film have hair styles of the time.
  • Casanova Wannabe: Jack and Ben are trying their luck with wealthy girls while they are visiting the titular resort.
  • Disguised in Drag: Ben dresses as a woman to avoid the Meastro, as he is also chasing after them and the Maestro ends up flirting with him in the elevator.
  • Groin Attack: After a naked meditation session is interrupted at the end of the film, a woman uses a big muscly guy's testicles like a 'stress ball' (they were just hanging there, so why not put them to use?). Completely oblivious that she happens to be using his vulnerable crotch as a stress relief device (even despite the moaning and groaning) she squeezes harder and harder each time she emphasises a point. She makes one last point and we get one final crunch. Joy and amusement fills the onlooking females in the group, and we cut to the end credits.
  • Tagline:
    • "Spend a weekend with no reservations!".
    • "They're looking for hot times. And they came to the right place...".
    • "Where every room has a great view".
