Darren goes to Hollywood in an attempt to live the American dream of becoming a big-name actor. When Darren is mistaken for Dante, the A-List actor in town, his world is thrown upside down - and he gets his wish, for better or for worse.
Scream of the Bikini is a 1960s action-spy-thriller by acclaimed South American director, Fernando Fernandez. Jasmine Orosco and Paola Apanapal - in their English language film debuts - are Bridget and Sophia: gorgeous super models by day, brutal bounty hunters by night. Murder, intrigue and pillow fights await our beautiful leading ladies at every turn, as they match wits and martial arts with a coterie of madmen and women bent on world domination. Filmed somewhere in South America in 1966, and poorly translated and dubbed by Germans, this unintentionally funny James Bond meets Barbarella love child plumbs the seedy depths of the international fashion model/psycho-killer underworld with a boldness that only a gun to the head can provide.

Scream of the Bikini, which looks like it was made on a limited budget, is a very funny spoof of those international caper movies of the 1960s. Specifically, the conceit of this film is that it was made in a foreign country in the 1960s and then re-dubbed in English by different (?) actors. Two lovely actresses, Rebecca Larsen and Kelsey Wedeen are the two leads, beautiful supermodels involved in international intrigue. Both actresses are very funny and look gorgeous throughout. Equally beautiful in Kimberly Atkinson as their nemesis. Also contributing very funny performances are Darrett Sanders, Bryan Krasner and Brad Light. There are also cameos by some familiar faces: Taylor Negron, Randolph Mantooth, Walter Koenig and Kirsten Vangsness, among many others; the film is filled with a lot of LA theater vets. I give it a 9/10 - I really enjoyed it but it went on a little too long.
