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>

Beach bunny voyeur's delight .......
9 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The plot of two brothers trying to save their inherited bikini shop doesn't matter. The unending MTV moments doesn't matter. The only thing that matters is that "Malibu Bikini Shop" is a beach bunny voyeur's delight. There are dozens and dozens of bikini closeups, a cute plot, adequate acting, and authentic beach front atmosphere. A couple of outrageous moments, involving a two way mirror in the girls dressing room, are highlights. Naturally there is some tasteful nudity too. Sure some scenes go on way too long, stretching the 80 minutes of material to 98 minutes, but that is a so what, since the tedious musical numbers all involve bikinis. This is a lighthearted fun beach frolic that stands above almost all of it's similar competition. - MERK
