Maslin Beach (1997)

How bad is it? A quirky light comedy that doesn't quite work. Not terrible.
Should you see it? Not really.

This has received some very low scores among reviewers, which I don't think it deserves, because it 1) shows a lot of average-looking naked people and 2) has been classified as a "romantic comedy." The film consists entirely of vignettes on a nude beach in Australia, with people discussing relationships, sex, love... and farting; in fact, there's a lot of farting. There isn't, however, much romance or comedy. It seems largely unscripted, which is a problem and, while taking place in one day, the sun angle changes back and forth. Essentially, nothing happens.
