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 »
This was more enjoyable than I thought. The acting was not as bad as some of the reviewers say, and for a film that doesn't take itself seriously, neither should you. I actually didn't mind the movie being short, after all it was always hard to stretch the storyline more than an hour.
The whole movie was more like a spoof, and somehow I felt Christopher Lloyd, Ving Rhames and of course The Hoff all added to the fun. The Hoff in particular was great. His role really suited him. He also had a bit more screen time than I would've thought.
I didn't see this in 3D, and I'm not sure if that would've changed my rating. There was a fair bit of gratuitous nudity, but I suppose the gratuitous gore balances that out.
So if you find gratuitous blood, body parts and boobs (and screaming) hilarious, this movie is worth a look over a beer and popcorn. And if you don't like it, it will be over before you know it.
