Storyline

Bradley Brinkman is just an average guy, but he wants to be someone special when along comes a sexy apparition who offers to make him the sexiest guy in Sea Spray, a lush California Beach spot. For just a piece of his soul, Dr. D (the Devil) will transform him into a stud. He signs on the dotted line and is now turned into Hunk Golden. Suddenly, women want him and guys envy him. After a television appearance, he becomes a national sensation - but is Bradley going to be happy with his newfound success - or is there hell to pay for being a hunk?

This film makes me happy
6 September 2015 | by AudreyTooSee all my reviews

I just adore this movie. It is in my category of 'Poundshop Classics' because it was discovered by an ex in a poundshop about 10 years ago. It is my second favourite movie in that category (after 'The Independent').

I've never really understood why this film is not more of a well known 80's cult classic as it has everything a good 80's film should have: the costumes, the music, the effects and the self-referencing humour. The characters and casting are all ace - Hunk Golden surely has to be one of the best character names of all time!

It is a silly, silly film and there's always time in my life for silly films.
