The original Beach Party (1963) was a big teen success, so the producers came up with this lacklustre sequel.
Meanwhile, Julie, a wealthy Italian contessa (Luciana Paluzzi) managed by S.Z. Matts (Buddy Hackett), wants muscle-man Flex Martian (Rock Stevens), trained by Jack Fanny (Don Rickles), for her own – until she meets Frankie. Frankie’s girl
Frankie’s girl Dee Dee (Funicello) gets rightfully jealous and plans to avenge the Frankie-stealing contessa.
Avalon warbles horribly, Annette dances as if she has a live octopus attached to her derrière, everyone hops around in shorts shaking their heads wildly, and the major plotline of clashing teenage rivals makes West Side Story look like Assault on Precinct 13.
