Trivia

Many viewers have complained that it looks like the characters are drinking from glass bottles in the hot tub - a BIG prohibition in almost any nudist/naturist club (or most regular resorts for that matter). The director explains that the bottles are actually plastic. See more »

Naturally done and a nice story
2 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

It's a thoroughly enjoyable movie. If anybody is looking for an introduction into the naturist way of life, this gentle comedy is a great way of easing you into it.

The film begins when businessman Ned Tillerman is killed in a boating accident. He has two estranged daughters who are called by the management of his own nudist resort Bear Lake to pick up his belongings. Neither of them are aware of the fact that when they arrive at the resort that it is a nudist venue and their father had allocated the property for them to inherit upon his death. The adventures begin from there....

It's funny without being overly gratuitous or sexually exploitative, and focuses on the problems that nudists often have with being accepted by mainstream society, and non-nudists trying to understand what this lifestyle has to offer them.

Highly recommended for most people to watch.
