Where your swimsuit, or whatever, or nothing at all (wait a minute, that was late ‘60s, scratch that).

WHERE THE BOYS ARE: Good girls Merritt (Hart), Melanie (Mimieux), Tuggle (Prentiss) and Angie (Francis) – all students at mid-western Penmore University – are planning on going to Fort Lauderdale, Florida for spring break to get away from the mid-western snow despite not having much money to spend once there. On the drive down, they admit their real purpose is to go where the boys are. The statuesque 5’10½” tall Tuggle just wants to find someone who won’t be intimidated by her height. Because of her size, she sees herself as a “baby-making factory” – only if it is under legal circumstances. She meets the tall but kooky TV (so named because of his want to work in television), who is more interested in sex than he is in matrimony.

Tomboy and perpetual 3rd wheel Angie ends up with esoteric musician Basil more out of circumstance than want, but Angie tries to find some common ground with him. Naive Melanie is the extreme romantic, who dreams of being swept off her feet and proposed to by an Ivy Leaguer. She gets half her wish when she meets a bunch of Yale boys, but she soon finds out that romance in spring break Fort Lauderdale may not be all that she envisions. And bright but academically underachieving Merritt has the most liberal views about the entire male-female mating ritual, she who believes in living together before marriage and premarital sex, only however with someone you love.

She catches the eye of the wealthy Ryder Smith, also an Ivy Leaguer attending Brown, with who she may test her views.
