Dir:Mark Griffiths (Hardbodies 2/Beethovens 5th/Behind Enemy Lines)
Hardbodies is a little different approach to the genre and strays away from the typical group of nerds trying to get laid and replaces them with a group of divorcees looking to score with some younger ladies during their mid life crisis chapter of life.
The film opens with the expected nude shots and girls in bikini's before we meet the films "Hero" Scotty a popular surfer who has a way with the ladies , his girlfriend Kristi and Scotty's quirky friend Rag as they hit the beach living the laid back surfer lifestyle. Then a trio of middle aged men Hunter,Ashby and Rounder arrive on the beach to buy some beachfront property to use as a party house for these newly single bachelors to look cool in attempt to get themselves some young tail. After quickly learning that it takes a bit more than a beach house to impress these beach bunnies and after finding out that many of the girls are not going to "Fuck a Fossil for free." they feel a bit down. Then Scotty who is on the verge of loosing his apartment due to late rent decides to approach the trio looking for work, He offers to detail their cars in the process taking one for a joy ride and passing it and the house off as his own to impress some ladies. Hunter and the guys return from a failed hunting trip to find what Scotty has done but instead of being angry , Hunter decides to offer him a place to stay and 500 a week spending money in exchange for Scotty teaching them how to "Dialogue" with the young girls and get some action going. At first Scotty doesn't trust the bunch but after returning to his house that has been boarded up and sleeping on the beach for the night he returns and accepts the job for 600 a week and room and board. Shortly after we are treated to a montage of Scotty showing them some tricks of the trade and giving the guys some makeovers. In the process handing out flyers to ladies for a huge party they plan to throw in the lovely beach home in order to better their chances.
