They just don't make movies like this classic anymore. Another movie critics won't understand the originality true uplifting atmosphere this movie creates. A true work of art. Top 100 movie of all-time. 5/5

The only reason to watch this film, is to see Bruce Greenwood as a party animal, but that gets old pretty quickly.

This one is also known as "The Bikini Shop"

A slightly interesting 1980s comedy about two men who inherit a bikini shop. The whole movie would have worked better as sofcore porn.

Never pretending to be anything more than a cheap T&A comedy for an undemanding young male audience, this is a consistently enjoyable beer and pizza night movie, featuring no less than three music montages in its last third. A little cult classic within its genr that rises above most because of the scene-stealing Debra Blee as a spoilt daddy's little girl, and Michael David Wright and Bruce Greenwood, who appear to be having more fun than anyone has the right to as budding businessman brothers.

Released in Australia as 'The Bikini Shop'.

I saw this film on Rhonda's USA "Up All Night" show and thought it was fun and had a good moral. One brother is a kind of goofus and the other a business-like guy, engaged to a wealthy daughter of big company owner. he is on a fast track to working for her dad. The brothers inherit their "weird" Malibu aunt's beach shop. One brother is happy and the other wants to sell it ASAP and get back to work. They try to increase sales to attract buyers. They hire local swimsuit designers, who work for almost nothing to get their designs seen. The goofus brother is in heaven and goes Malibu "native". The business brother tries to hide what he's doing, is angry it is taking so long to get rid of, but he is grateful for the increasing popularity of bikini styles being made by a sweet, beautiful, kindhearted bikini designer. His "Heather's" fiance shows up with her dad, is appalled at the funky shop, & insults everyone. Ah, but when the business brother sees the comparison of the kind woman compared to the crass, rich, entitled, spoiled fiance, he decides to give up the fiance, money, and high-level business position for a simple life on the beach, selling bikinis designed by the beautiful designer. A love story indeed that is about what makes life valuable.

A better title would be The Bikini Shop From Hell because instead of the viewer enjoying some dumb fun in the sun this movies dishes out agony.

This movie was to say the least, lame. lol! If you're broke... then you're in for a treat. Tits, and lame comedy at your fingertips. Made me laugh a couple of times but nothing had to do with the writing. The halarious came from the shitty acting and terrible clothing. The funny thing is this movie is not funny.

The Malibu Bikini shop is to be watched by people who are very open and accepting, and not afraid to watch soft-core porn in front of others. It is a fun movie with songs by people you've never heard of and many actors and actresses you'll never see again (with the exception of Bruce Greenwood), but is ultimately a wonderful movie. (:

Here's an odd trivia factoid: costars Jay Robinson and Bruce Greenwood are both connected to "Star Trek." Robinson played Petri in the 1968 episode "Elaan of Troyius." Greenwood would go on to star as Capt. Christopher Pike in the '09 franchise reboot. (Greenwood's credits also include "St. Elsewhere," "Knots Landing," and "National Treasure: Book of Secrets.") Another costar worth mentioning: character actor Frank Nelson, who appeared on "I Love Lucy" and provided voices for "The Jetsons" and "The Snorks," among others. The movie itself is pretty bad -- stereotypical '80s soundtrack and fashion. Should only be viewed as a time capsule experience.

I had never seen Bruce Greenwood in any of this earlier roles, but this was very corny. If it weren't for the nudity, this would have been a half star movie.

Think "Flashdance" meets "Porky's" meets any 80's Mabelline make-up commercial with a lot of poles missing their strippers. This is the typical wacky caper type film with very little appeal. The actor playing the partier brother was very forced with his performance the entire movie. The fiance was just flat annoying and it was a pretty dumb movie all the way around. It only had a few things going for it: 1) It's great for a starter Bad Movie Night because it's so easy to heckle 2) All of the hard and pretty beach bods (no matter which sex you like to view and 3) The great Frank Nelson. When asked if this was a horrible movie, he would have turned around and said, "Yyyeeeeessssss!"

Every group of college guys has favorite stupid adolescent 80's type movies. This is one of mine. Typical 80's flick: 2 brothers (one a uptight the other a party beach bum inherit a bikini shop where 3 gorgeous women work and have to live with them in thier Mailbu beach house. Uptight bro has a serious bitchy fiance and falls for ultra hot and upcoming bikini designer. Hmmmm, which should he choose? Should he sell the bikini shop o a spiritual guru? Should they throw a party to figure it out? YES. Don't expect a lot from this and you'll be surprised by the above average jokes, one liners and a few surprises. You'll also see a young Bruce Greenwood( Star Trek fame: new Capt. Pike) playing the beach party animal brother!
2nd surprise: Showtime aired this in HD. Somebody actually spent $$$ on a 1986 cheap flick to put this on HD. Wow, there is a God and he luvs Malibu Bikini Shop.
