Podcast: Hard Ticket to Hawaii (1987)



Your Stupid Minds finally covers one of the A-listers in the schlock movie pantheon: Andy Sidaris’s Hard Ticket to Hawaii. Sidaris was a sports director who decided to jump over to 1980s sexploitation flicks. With muse and former Playmate of the Month Dona Speir, he went on a quest to create the most bonkers action films of the decade.


Donna (Spier) and Taryn (Hope Marie Carlton) are buxom drug agents who stumble on an RC helicopter-based diamond smuggling drug ring. They elicit the help of boyfriend agent Rowdy (Ronn Moss) and Jade (South Florida kickboxing superstar Harold Diamond) to rescue their friend and blow up as many things as possible. There’s also a contaminated killer snake, several deaths by Bazooka, a zany handstand skateboarding assassin, and a spiked death frisbee.

Some Notes:
  • Other films in the Sidaris shared universe: Malibu Express, Picasso Trigger, Savage Beach, Guns, Do or Die, Hard Hunted, Fit to Kill, and many more!
  • Sidaris was famous for pioneering the "honey shot" during sporting events. This involved close-ups of sexy ladies throughout the game. Sports was a very dull affair before he came along.
