The 80s Overdrive: 6 Movie Collection is just another re-package job by Mill Creek, a few triple dipping at this point. I guess if you didn’t already own any of these movies, and considering its low SRP, might be worth picking up, otherwise skip.

THE COLLECTION


THE LEGEND OF BILLIE JEAN
When local rich kid Hubie Pyatt steals and wrecks Binx Davy’s motor scooter, his older sister, Billie Jean, demands the costs to fix it. When Binx accidentally shoots Pyatt, he and Billie Jean flee and become fugitives, and when they pick up a willing hostage, become criminals. Billie Jean becomes a legend in her own time and a symbol of freedom to teenagers everywhere!

LITTLE NIKITA
Jeff is an American student applying to the Air Force Academy; Roy is an FBI agent doing his background check when he discovers Jeff’s parents are undercover Russian spies disguised as Americans. When Roy confronts Jeff about his parents, he is forced to make a decision that could save his entire country!

HARDBODIES
When three middle-aged geezers move into a swinging beach house, they hire a young stud to teach them how to score with the local beauties. ’80s band Vixen and hundreds of Southern California’s hottest swimsuit models co-star.

SPRING BREAK
Adam and Nelson are naïve college students who have come to Fort Lauderdale to perform the rites of Spring Break. Due to a mix-up, the boys end up in the same room with a pair of experienced guys from New York who coach the boys on the finer points of seduction – with mixed results.

PERFECT
John Travolta is a writer for Rolling Stone; Jamie Lee Curtis is a beautiful aerobics instructor. When he investigates health clubs as the “singles bars of the ’80s,” sparks fly and a sizzling romance heats up.

PRIVATE RESORT
Jack and Beck check in at a posh Florida resort, planning to spend every hour in hot pursuit of babes. But their plans hit a major detour when they try to bed the wife of a conniving jewel thief. They’ll have to outsmart him, a nasty security guard and an obnoxious jock if they’re ever going to get a moment alone with the girl of their dreams.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 1.0/5


Unfortunately, this is a repackaging of The Legend of Billie Jean: Special ‘Fair is Fair’ Edition, Little Nikita and Sun, Sand & Sweat Collection containing Private Resort, Hardbodies, Speing Break and Perfect.

Audio Commentary with Actors Helen Slater and Yeardley Smith. The other movies do not contain any features on The Legend of Billie Jean.

 

VIDEO – 3.0/5, AUDIO – 2.75/5


The quality varies depending on the movie, but generally each one looks decent, showing in their original aspect ratios and given a 1080p high-definition transfers; colors tend to be bright and detail respectable enough. Each film receives a standard Dolby Digital Stereo track.

OVERALL – 2.5/5


Overall, the 80s Overdrive: 6 Movie Collection is just another re-package job by Mill Creek, a few triple dipping at this point. I guess if you didn’t already own any of these movies, and considering its low SRP, might be worth picking up, otherwise skip.
