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>

A GREAT Entertainment !!!!!
18 August 2011 | by (France) – See all my reviews

First, don t compare it with American Pie. Thats not the same kind of movie.. I believe it is hard to guess when you watch the trailer whose the only goal is to sell it as an "american pie" film..

Actually this comedy is more pleasant to watch. For instance there are not such "embarrassing" scenes which, I think, are funny but finally you don t want to see again. Here the subject can sometimes be coarse, but not the way its been directed.

One of the best actor is the house :) The Pool Boys has the same setting than an thriller or a scary movie. Many strange characters in a manor!!!! It creates a nice atmosphere, funny and mysterious in the same time.

Well... I don t want to say more and spoil the film..

I really don t understand the bad rating here. Probably people who didn't even see the movie and expect something bad. Of course that s not a masterpiece but thats the kind of movie you like to watch and watch again with friends!!!!
