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 »

Quotes

Jane: [Angered that Alan has decided he didn't really want to sell the shop after all] Alan Finston, what's come over you? If you intend to go through with this idiocy, you and I are through!
Alan: Jane, you're right... You and I ARE through!

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.

WATCH THIS MOVIE~!
