Storyline

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 <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Goofs

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 »

Up with Bikinis!
3 May 2012 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Clean cut college grad Michael David Wright (as Alan Finston) and hunky blonde brother Bruce Greenwood (as Todd Finston) inherit "The Malibu Bikini Shop" as part of their aunt's Ida's estate. While they decide whether or not to liquidate, you get an ample look at dozens of young women in bikinis. Writer/director David Wechter starts it off with in loving fashion. There are close-ups of bikini tops. There are close-ups of bikini bottoms. There are also some topless treats, but not as close-up. The plot has the lads in danger of losing the shop, due to Mr. Wright's cranky fiancée Debra Blee (as Jane Rutledge). In one of his last appearances, veteran Frank Nelson (as Richard J. Remington) leads an adept supporting cast.

***** The Malibu Bikini Shop (10/86) David Wechter ~ Michael David Wright, Bruce Greenwood, Barbara Horan, Frank Nelson
