Meanwhile, Carole is seeking a break. The opening titles simply read "Where the Boys Are".
However, that doesn't mean that it isn't without merits. Though it's nothing particularly special, Where the Boys Are is a fun diversion for anyone who appreciates B-grade 80s teen films (like Secret Admirer or Hard Bodies, for example). 3 people found this helpful.
