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

Right before Todd introduces the tan-lines dance routine, he says something that annoys the crowd. The people in the crowd express their annoyance by hurling literally dozens and dozens of paper cups and other objects at him, which land around Todd on the pink dance platform. Then the camera angle changes as the first girl comes on the dance platform, yet there are no paper cups or any other debris visible on the dance platform. See more »

Quotes

Alan: We're gonna have to work awfully hard to sell the store. See, it's got to be turned into a profit-making business in order to attract a buyer. Now, I figure it'll take a couple of weeks to get everything taken care of. In the meantime, we'll just live here. Now you, Todd, can either help me out or not. It's up to you.
Todd: [Grabbing milk carton from Alan, who is trying to put it away] No offense, pal, but I think living with you is gonna drive me crazy!
Alan: [Throwing up hands and storming off] Aagh!
Todd: ...I ...

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.
