Fun comedy with some music about annual spring break in Ft. Lauderdale Fla.

I met Connie Francis at a party in Florida in January '19 and she graciously autographed my copy of the Warner Archives release of Where the Boys Are. Although this starts out as a college comedy with fun performances with Paula Prentiss and Jim Hutton, there is a more serious side with drama relevant to today's #metoo issues. Yvette Mimeux gets caught up with the wrong kind of guy and is effective in this part of the film Dolores Hart, George Hamilton and Connie Francis also star with the latter singing the iconic title song. Blu-ray disc looks and sounds fine.

Old fashioned look at contemporary issues. Prime video version
Verified purchase
They made them well in the sixties. It was enjoyable to see how simple things were in the old days compared to today. That being said, the issues this film deals with are still relevant in modrrn times. This is a comedy with dramatic moments. It was probably considered fluff and some kind of movie designed to cash in on the youth movement just beginning at that time, but standards in those days required that it deal with the issues in a responsible way. It succeeded fairly well at showing male and female perspectives developing by experience of life. It also succeeds as a dated comedy from a simpler time. The actors were first rate.

This is the prototype of all summer beach fun movies to follow and unarguably the best because of its castmates who made it so. Neil Sedaka song is a real winner that really sets the tone & pace of the movie & for its castmates to fall in love in this movie. I love it & George Hamilton drawing a heart with his finger in the sand is a classic, one of a kind, never to be duplicated show of real honest to goodness emotion. I long for those years back again when love was pure love.

One of my old favorites
Verified purchase
Lots of quirky fun with college students on a school break to Ft Lauderdale. It has an all star cast from the 60's, and a very meaningful message to girls and their new boyfriend's.
If you remember those wacky, carefree days, this may cause your heart to sob, laugh, and ask yourself- were we ever that crazy?

An unacceptable abridged version
Verified purchase
The copy of "W?here the Boys Are" thatI I received did not have Connie Francis' classic song and only a little of the original sound track of music. Also missing was the the original opening scene that involved the males planning to leave a snowy Michigan State University campus to head for Florida. Very disappointed!

I saw the movie when it came out so many years ago. It was enjoyable watching it again. It brought back many fond memories. I remember Ft. Lauderdale and Daytona Beach back then and spring break growing up in Florida. If you want to reminisce and remember your teenage years and spring break this is the movie for you.

It is one of my favorite movies of all times
Verified purchase
It is one of my favorite movies of all times. It makes me think when Florida wasn't so crazy when I used to go on vacation with my parents in the 60's and 70's as it is now. I was extremely young when this came out but I just really like it. Dolores Hart, who dated Elvis Presley and became a nun, George Hamilton who I thought was so handsome, Jim Hutton, because of his son Timothy, and just typical things make me love this movie. Not too much singing, just enough.
