Bikini Beach is a classic American beach party film from the 1960s. Released in 1964, the movie stars Frankie Avalon, Annette Funicello, and Martha Hyer, among others. The plot of the movie revolves around a rivalry between two groups of beachgoers: the surfers and the motorheads. Frankie Avalon plays the leader of the surfers, while Martha Hyer plays the leader of the motorheads. They are both vying for the affections of Annette Funicello, who plays a local girl caught between the two worlds.

As the movie progresses, the two groups engage in a series of zany and wild antics as they try to one-up each other on the beach. They race cars, surf, and even engage in a game of volleyball that involves a live grenade.

Throughout it all, Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello provide the movie with its heart and soul. Their sweet, innocent romance is at the center of the film, and their chemistry is undeniable. There are plenty of musical numbers, too, with Frankie and Annette leading the way, singing and dancing in their signature style.

One of the highlights of the movie is the appearance of a group of musical legends known as The Beatles. Well, sort of. The band is actually played by actors, but they do perform a couple of songs, including "Surfin' Bird" and "Do You Want to Dance?" The Beatles themselves were not available to appear in the movie, but their presence helped to make Bikini Beach one of the most memorable movies of the 1960s.

Overall, Bikini Beach is a fun and nostalgic trip back in time to a simpler era. It's a movie that captures the spirit of the beach party scene of the 1960s, with all its kitschy charm and youthful energy. Whether you're a fan of classic Hollywood movies or just looking for a lighthearted and entertaining film to watch, Bikini Beach is sure to deliver.

Bikini Beach is a 1964 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 40 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.4.
