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 »

A great kick back, feel good movie
23 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can't believe this movie has an overall rating of 4.0. This is a classic 80's movie. OK so maybe it's a over dramatic and the acting isn't the best I've ever seen, but it is thoroughly entertaining. This is the kind of movie you just sit back and relax to, you don't look into or try to find inner meaning. Instead you kick back and relax and take it for what it is. I found this movie to be not only funny, but quite reminscient of some people I know. I know there isn't much character development here, but the contrast between the uptight and openly laid back brothers are just great. When the uptight brother finds out what he's been missing all his life, he realizes that there is a lot more fun to be had outside his inner bubble of sanctity and security.
