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>

Funniest Film of 2011 On Demand
17 October 2011 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

A bold statement, I know, but absolutely true. The Pool Boys rocks. I haven't laughed this hard in a film since the original Will Farrell's Anchorman.

It's in the style of the great Animal House, a film that knows how to go for it, holding nothing back. The dialog is fun, the performances are awesome, and the women are spectacular.

Rachelle Lefevre, in particular, is fantastic. So sexy and funny, she's now a series regular on CBS's A Gifted Man.

Its playing on Movies On Demand, so you can catch it with ease. Check out their red band trailer on You Tube and The Pool Boys Facebook page.
