Storyline

Alex is on his way to Harvard but needs a summer internship to qualify for a scholarship. When a job in D.C. falls through, he turns to his glib cousin, Roger, whom he thinks is an aquatic engineer. Roger is, in truth, a Beverly Hills pool boy who offers Alex a job and promises to invent an internship to fool Harvard. When a pool customer with a mansion goes on holiday for six weeks, Roger gets the idea to run a brothel and enlists Alex to keep the books. As the scholarship interview approaches, what could go wrong? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

The Pool Boys works
13 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

I thought the film was hilarious. There are points where the humor seems to be aimed at the teenage boy crowd with lots of bare breasts and occasional rude jokes, but over all a smart film with witty dialog.

Much like "Risky Business" the plot seems to be implausible, but no more so. At no point did I feel like a situation was thrown in just to get a laugh, which was so typical of "American Pie."

Matthew Lillard brings cleaver humor, while Tom Arnold shows his wild side, something we've not seen since "True Lies." Rachelle Leferve brought class to the film to counter the busty Playboy bunnies romping about.

Well worth seeing!
