After inheriting a failing bikini shop, two recent grads decide to make a go of it. One, in the hopes of building it into a successful business, the other, in the hopes of getting to look at lots of women in (and out) of swimsuits. As they try more and more outrageous ways of drumming up business, their antics begin attracting some unwanted attention. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <>

Did You Know?


After Todd enters the dressing room with the large breasted blonde woman, he begins smiling and making faces at his brother Alan through the two-way mirror. Although Todd does this behind her back, she would obviously be able to see what he is doing in their reflection since they are both facing the mirror. See more »


Todd: [Allowing Juan and his friends to look into the dressing rooms via the two-way mirrors] Gentlemen, welcome. Remember: peeping is a privilege, not a right. Please remain seated at all times, keep your hands at your sides. Should you need oxygen, a mask will fall from the console above your head. Thank you. Have a nice day.
Juan: Hey, thanks, man. We'll work for you dudes any time.
Todd: Anything to further the education of young Americans.

The best movie of the 80's
9 February 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Wow, I have never heard of this until recently stumbling across it in a $2 bin of used VHS videos. Bruce Greenwood shows more flair here than he ever did in Double Jeopardy. what a cool film, especially the finale where all the bikini's that a mass of running girls are wearing, dissolve. If thats not good enough what about the two way mirrors in the shop itself, straight out of Porky's. Mr. Remington has a few good one liners, but it's all about Tod, Bruce Greenwood, is the brains behind his brother's nerdyness. Why this Canadian actor wearing a sailors hat and an unbuttoned shirt is appealing to me, I don't know, but he's choice in the role. As soon as you listen to the soundtrack you may think they are reject songs from Valley Girl, but there are some really good music. Better than 'Welcome to 18'. In Australia it was just called 'The Bikini Shop' and got a theatrical release, when as a teenybopper, gave it 10/10 too. See it.
