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>

Nothing spectacular
4 February 2010 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This movie is good entertainment, but it doesn't really bring about many laughs.

I was expecting something maybe in the likes of the American Pie movies or such, given the title of the this particular movie and the fact that it was labeled as a comedy.

The story was adequate, but the acting was good. For me, this movie failed to make me laugh, though it was basically funny throughout the movie, just not to the point where you laugh. It drew forth a couple of smiles, that was about it.

Despite the failure to make me laugh, I still found the movie to be good entertainment. I think this movie is perhaps one such movie that is best watched while nurturing a hang-over.
