Did You Know?


Filming was intended to start in January 2011 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana with a release date in August that year. However, it quickly became apparent that the weather was simply too cold in that location for that time of year for a cast mainly wearing swimwear. See more »


Big Dave is shown pouring what is supposed to be liquid chlorine into the water circulation system, and then igniting it with his marijuana cigarette. First, the chlorine used in pools and water parks comes in solid form (pellets or discs). And second, chlorine gas is not flammable. See more »

The end credits are first interrupted by a "clip" from Hasselhoff "music video" Fish Hunter, then by some bloopers, then by a "clip" from "Making of" the Hasselhoff "music video", then by outtakes, and finally, the proper Stinger. See more »

Lowest common denominator garbage
17 June 2012 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

This has to be the absolute nadir of genre film-making. A 20 million dollar budget to produce this crap, ten decent low budget features could have been produced for the same price.

Performances that range from embarrassing to "oh my god what was that?" Visual effects that set the digital revolution back about ten years. Some of the worst one liners in the recent history of cinema and a silly extended but unfunny cameo from the Hoff himself.

All this negative criticism is coming from someone who rated the first one an eight, but the director here seems to have fallen asleep in his chair and forgotten to pen a halfway decent script. A handful of pre-pubescent boys out there may find the barrage of boobs enough to sustain its scant 80 odd minutes - I didn't! Utter garbage!
