Storyline

After inheriting a failing bikini shop, two recent grads decide to make a go of it. One, in the hopes of building it into a successful business, the other, in the hopes of getting to look at lots of women in (and out) of swimsuits. As they try more and more outrageous ways of drumming up business, their antics begin attracting some unwanted attention. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Goofs

After Todd enters the dressing room with the large breasted blonde woman, he begins smiling and making faces at his brother Alan through the two-way mirror. Although Todd does this behind her back, she would obviously be able to see what he is doing in their reflection since they are both facing the mirror. See more »

Quotes

Alan: So, tell me, Todd, what have you been up to lately?
Todd: Well, I was up in Seattle for a while... I finally found a backer for my solar-powered hot dog stands! Then it rained for 60 days in a row, the guy backed out, so... I just been traveling around, staying with friends.

Just a fun movie set in the 80's before political correctness, which has driven movies to be largely manufactured with the same plots, and with a single developed character (supporting actors with real roles has become a thing of the past). The feminists will scream exploitation, but it's harmless fun, and extremely tame compared to what teenagers now watch on the internet by comparison - just bikinis and a few boobs. It's a fact of life that men will always look at women, especially good looking ones; and this film has a number of them, plus some good music. The plot was never meant to be drama, but just a light weight comedy about two boys inheriting a bikini shop - every guys dream; and their attempts to save it with marketing initiatives worth seeing. It was never attempting to win an academy award - the film doesn't take itself seriously; but rather just providing light titillation with a few chuckles & smiles. No murders or gratuitous violence; you just end up with a grin after watching it. Our world could do worse.
