Picks and Pans Review: Where the Boys Are '84
Watching this inane remake of the 1960 spring-break comedy, one mostly wonders where the four girls of that camp classic are. Well, wonder no more: Delores Hart is now a cloistered nun in Connecticut. Paula Prentiss, who suffered a nervous breakdown in 1964, is the wife of director Richard (Racing With the Moon) Benjamin, the mother of two and a much-missed presence on the screen. Connie Francis has fought a long battle against physical and mental problems. And Yvette Mimieux is separated from her husband, director Stanley (Blame It on Rio) Donen. Somewhere in those epilogues lies the plot of a terrific pop movie. Where the Boys Are 84 doesn't begin to qualify for that distinction. (R)
