Miracle Beach (released in the Philippines as Genie, My Love and subtitled Hardbodies II in Australia) is a 1992 fantasy/comedy film starring Dean Cameron, Ami Dolenz, Felicity Waterman and Pat Morita.



Scotty McKay (Cameron) is just an everyday beach-bum who used to have it all, when he finds an attractive genie named Jeannie (Dolenz). Her mission is to assist Scotty. With Jeannie's help, Scotty has everything again and more, as Jeannie does his bidding and answers to his every beck and call; that is until he asks Jeannie to make him more desirable to the next door supermodel, Dana (Felicity Waterman).

Jeannie can't help as far as love is concerned, and besides, Dana is just not interested. Jeannie soon runs into problems when she finds herself attracted to Scotty and finds it difficult to help him win Dana's heart. The story ensues with a gamut of events resulting in mayhem.



Miracle Beach was released direct-to-video on VHS by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment on September 30, 1992. In the Philippines, the film was released in theaters as Genie, My Love on October 20, 1992; it was marketed as "suitable for the whole family". [1]

It was released on the MGM Limited Edition Collection on November 17, 2015. It was released on Blu-ray by Kino Lorber on April 19, 2016.

Laura Spencer (<i>General Hospital</i>) Soap opera character

Laura Spencer is a fictional character from General Hospital, an American soap opera on the ABC network. Laura, originally played by Stacey Baldwin, was introduced in 1974 as the illegitimate daughter of Lesley Webber. The character was written out in the summer of 1976. In early 1977, Genie Francis took over the role of the rebellious teenage Laura. In 1978, thanks to the efforts of executive producer Gloria Monty's plan to entice younger viewers, the character's popularity skyrocketed in the late 1970s and early 1980s due to her pairings with Scott Baldwin and, most famously, Luke Spencer ; the latter became a popular supercouple among soap opera fans and viewers. Luke and Laura's 1981 wedding – which featured a guest appearance from Elizabeth Taylor — was viewed by 30 million people. In 1981, Francis quit the show, claiming unequal treatment compared to Geary, and the character was written out as having disappeared the following January. Francis returned for a brief stint in late 1983 to reunite Luke and Laura, and then again in late 1984 when Laura was revealed to be pregnant.

<i>Jeannie</i> (TV series) 1973 American animated television series

Jeannie is an American animated television series that originally aired for a 16-episode season on CBS from September 8 to December 22, 1973. It was produced by Hanna-Barbera in association with Screen Gems, and its founders William Hanna and Joseph Barbera are the executive producers. Despite being a spin-off of sorts of the television sitcom I Dream of Jeannie, Jeannie has little in common with its parent show. In this version, the title character is rescued on the beaches of southern California by a high school student, Corey Anders. Jeannie is accompanied by genie-in-training Babu, and they become companions to Corey and his best friend, Henry Glopp, both of whom also help Jeannie and Babu adjust to their new home as well as life in Los Angeles. The series was marketed towards a younger demographic than I Dream of Jeannie.
