Nice light comedy, loved it.
9 February 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this film. Exotic locations, light comedy cleverly played by the principal actors (especially Elliott Gould) and stunning photography. Wet N Wild Summer as it was called here is the story of a big multi national developer(Elliott Gould) being conned by a devious wife (Lois Larimore) who wants him to buy up beach front land in Australia. Elliots son (Christopher Atkins) in on the deal, decides to move to Australia undercover on an Exchange Lifeguard program to do the deal. When he arrives, he meets the chief lifeguard (Julian McMahon) who is trying to save the surf-club from these devious developers. The film takes a u turn and when Atkins meets a female lifeguard and falls in love, but he is caught between a rock and a hard place re his agenda. I put this film in the same category as Muriels Wedding, where the characters are so funny and sometimes over the top make you want to go and live there.
