No film captures the playful chaos of action cinema’s Golden Age like director Andy and producer Arlene Sidaris’ undisputed masterpiece. An inexhaustible geyser of top-notch sex and violence, HARD TICKET TO HAWAII exists beyond entertainment’s maximum limits. If you see only two movies in your lifetime, it should be because you watched this twice.
The Agency is a tough-as-nails, tech-savvy squad of physically ideal humans (led by Playboy icon Dona Speir and “Bold and the Beautiful” soap legend Ronn Moss) who defend Hawaii’s Molokai Island from diamond smugglers, narcotics slingers and a skateboarding maniac armed with an inflatable sex doll. Tirelessly and shirtlessly, they deal out homicidal justice at every turn—unleashing helicopters, motorcycles and deadly frisbees to ensure the safety of every bronzed boytoy and babe on the beach! Essential viewing.
“Imagine James Bond directed by Russ Meyer. HARD TICKET continues Sidaris’ subversion of standard gender roles, with women depicted as strong, resourceful and brave. Their strength is depicted as simply human.” —notcoming.com “Aside from gender, there isn’t much difference between casting Dona Speir or Arnold Schwarzenegger in an action film.” —JJ Stratford, Vice “The smartest thing I ever did was to marry Arlene Sidaris. She is my producer and the love of my life.” —Andy Sidaris
