– Bill Gordon / Worst Movies Ever Made

”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.” – Buzz McClain / AllMovie
