"And remember, NO SLAPPING."
6 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"You all better go back to the gym, you look like you're gaining weight. I gotta go to the store and buy some condoms." A pause. "And remember, NO SLAPPING." says the old man to his dozen or so protégés, handsome and shirtless young sailors in some tropical surroundings, as a dreamy 30s sort of romantic melody plays. As soon as the old man and his bike are out of sight though, a homoerotic Three Stooges slap-party starts, with percussive steel-drum (played by more shirtless guys) and a droning deep string section (unseen). It's the Stooges meet Kenneth Anger on a Hope/Crosby "Road to..." set. For a second, one of the guys in close-up looks just like Curly! Manic, crazy, hilarious.
