Hard Ticket to Hawaii (1987) #80s #exploitation #poster

First there was the Bicycle Thief, then Citizen Kane, Gone With the Wind, Doctor Zhivago, Gahndi, and now Hard Ticket to Hawaii. Breathtaking cinematography and cunning script writing make this a must-see for all who aspire to create "films" rather than movies. Dona Spier (grossly ignored by the academy) spews forth her lines with an enthusiasm unseen since the great Shakespearean actresses of the 18th century. Andy Sidaris is a shrewd judge of talent and is horribly underestimated, as his films are usually ignored at the Cannes and Aspen film festivals. I rate this a 10.

Hard Ticket to Hawaii – Frisbee Death

Director Andy Sidaris has made a career from the mantra "Bullets, Bombs, and Babes," and this lighthearted, action-filled romp is typical of his fare. Featuring a cast of former Playboy Playmates -- Dona Speir, Hope-Marie Carlton, and Cynthia Brimhall were all pinups in the 1980s -- and copious excuses to get naked (Donna and Taryn "do their best thinking in the hot tub," they say) , Hard Ticket to Hawaii is an adolescent fantasy for grown men. The frequent erotic scenes are not very sensuous -- the actors do little more than make out for a minute or two -- but the action is better than you might expect. The Grand Guignol finale is ridiculously, intentionally campy, and there's a particularly nasty bit about a Frisbee rimmed with razor blades that is as laughable as it is bloody. Exotic scenery, fiery explosions, a maniacal snake, and actors who are bad enough to get away with reciting corny dialogue without it being distracting -- this one has it all.

The second film in the series, Hard Ticket to Hawaii, is indisputably the "best." It's about a pair of blonde secret agents who lose track of a deadly snake (which return in the climax in the most incredible fashion), really enjoy a nice hot tub and run afoul of a villain whose henchmen like to roller blade down empty streets with blow-up sex dolls before getting blown up with bazookas. Also there's a razor blade frisbee and some kind of subplot about a sports star who totally ruins a live interview. Like most of the things that happen in Hard Ticket to Hawaii, these things happen "just because."
