The Beach

''The Beach'' is a (kinda) secret beach on an island in Thailand, where a modern-day hippie commune has established itself. Our hero, the girl he has the hots for, and her boyfriend, gatecrash into the place and are allowed to stay. They pass the days smoking dope, fishing, sleeping, swimming, and so on. However their continued existence depends on the location remaining secret, and when four new arrivals want to join, things come to a head. Is paradise really paradise?

Visitor Comments
Ian Douglas: See Leo. See Leo smoke dope. See Leo topless. See Leo do ''Jaws''. See Leo do ''Blue Lagoon''. See Leo smoke dope. See Leo topless. See Leo bonking someone else's girlfriend. Repeat with someone *else's* girlfriend. See Leo do ''Lord of the Flies''. See Leo do ''Rambo''. See Leo do ''The Deerhunter''. See Leo.

Jooste Senekal (21): I liked it. It is very nice.

Dion Scher (25): A nice beach. A really nice beach.

Vien Chanthavong (17): I totally love the movie b-cuz its just the best and the sweetest thing.

Guinevere Vos (23): Not being a Leo fan I decided to take a chance - not bad if you look out for the lesson of the day. If Leo didn't have all the hype following him - it would have been better.

Tebogo Diakanyo (28): Should be labelled worst movie of the year, but it's good for those who only want to see Leo, and don't care about the role he plays.
