Movie Info

A middle-aged loser with a taste for strip club buffet food finds his unusual dining habits leading to an unlikely shot at success in this sexy sports comedy that shows you can never have too much fun in the sun. It's not the beautiful dancers that draw Billy Cole (Burt Reynolds) to the Cloud Nine gentlemen's club, but the delicious food served up daily at the buffet. When Billy gets the bright idea of combining sex-appeal and sports by training the Club Nine dancers to become professional beach volleyball players, the sun-drenched combination of skin and competition drives the crowds wild. But the girls want to be known for something more than just their good looks, and when Billy notices that they have the skills to back up their ambition, he decides to take one last shot at the big time.

  • As always, Dresen has turned his camera on ordinary people leading ordinary lives, but as the tiny details build into a complete, three-dimensional portrait, one is, finally, loath to leave their company.

  • A volleyball "comedy" that has just as many laughs as a gall bladder operation.
