Beautiful beach for beautiful people
1 December 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

We all get our start somewhere and if you look sharp you can spot Brad Pitt as an extra in a scene in Hunk on the beach at Sea Spray California where there is a beautiful beach for beautiful people. Fortunately he would go on to better things.

Hunk is another retelling of the Faust legend a real silly one at that. Nerdy Steve Levitt who is a computer programmer is up against it and says he'll make a deal with old Scratch for a good program. His computer itself writes one for him and as a reward he gets to spend the summer off at Sea Spray beach while he tries to come up with another program winner. Hanging around all these beautiful people and being treated like something stuck to your shoe, Levitt dreams he was one of them.

Now old Scratch himself sends an emissary in Deborah Shelton and she offers him a chance to try out hunkdom. Sure enough over night he's transformed into the drop dead gorgeous John Allen Nelson. Perfection in the male body. itself.

The whole thing really gets downright dumb as Nelson becomes a celebrity after saving the life of Robin Leach wannabe Robert Morse. Will he take the offer? I know I would find it hard to refuse.

James Coco has some good moments as a most epicene devil, but the rest of this is just juvenile and stupid.

But if you like ogling beautiful bodies, you can't go wrong with Hunk.
