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

Richard J. Remington: [Proudly showing Alan and Todd the bikini shop they've just inherited] Well, fella's, this is all yours.
Todd: [Impressed - mainly by all the bikini-clad girls running around] Mr. R, I think I've found my calling in life.
Richard J. Remington: [Sarcastically] Really! And I had you figured for a brain surgeon!

So bad it's almost good
12 January 2002 | by (Europe) – See all my reviews

This film most definitely belongs in the so-bad-it's-almost-good category. Very much a product of its time (1985), the hairstyles, fashions and soundtrack songs are hysterical to those of us who were fortunate (?!) enough to grow up in the 80s. There are embarrassing dance sequences, bikinis that are testament to the aerobics craze - and of course there's lots of flesh on display. Hmmm, must be a guy thing... Bruce Greenwood is the only actor in the cast who has moved on to bigger and better things - I bet a clip of this will come to haunt him one day on The Tonight Show!
