Jack Ryan, a charming but mischievous kid with a history of small cons, never nasty, as he always approaches life from the pleasant side, goes to surfers paradise Hawai, where dodgy district judge Walter Crewes enlists him to get to real big criminals. Jack finds himself teaming up in bed and thieving 'business' with Nancy Hayes, the greedy mistress of evil hotel magnate Ray Ritchie and his dumb lieutenant Bob Rogers, Jr. and a real temptress gold-digger but is about the only one without an hidden agenda...Written by
The finished PG-13 rated film appears to have a great deal of censoring, from what was originally cut as an R-rated film. As such, several "f" words are overdubbed with much less strong words (with their mouths visibly saying something else). Also, it appears the romance between Jack and Nancy had been toned down slightly, by removing scenes and moments that appear in the film's theatrical trailer. See more »
While Jack and Nancy are skinny dipping and the car is being towed, Nancy is behind Jack. In the next shot of the car being towed, she is a couple feet in front of him. In the next shot she's back behind him. See more »
Whether it was intended to be viewed this way or not, this movie was exactly that, a movie(which are supposed to be fun). It didn't make you think too hard(or at all), It had a beautiful cast in a beautiful location, a great soundtrack, and a quirky fun story. Sometimes these type of movies are just what the doctor ordered. So what that it has no deep and meaningful theme, or that there are spots in the movie that make absolutely no sense!!!! It suffered severely in the box office due to very poor marketing prior to its release as well as a nation full of people suffering from groupthink, and the critics are the ones pulling the strings. I found the movie extremely refreshing, a nice break from deep thought, and i chance where i could just sit down, fix my eyes on the TV, and smile :D
