Trivia:

Leslie Easterbrook says she had it in her contract to only expose her behind in this film. But the producers convinced her to wear a sheer negligee that left little to the imagination when filmed under bright lights.

Continuity:
The fire extinguisher foam patterns on Reeves' and the Maestro's suits and faces bear no relationship to how much they were sprayed (or even where).



User Review

Entertaining sex comedy – it is what it is. Plus, take in Johnny Depp before he was famous.

Rating: 6/10


I knew nothing of this film before I saw it. It was a free "On Demand"
film from Comcast. I didn't even know Johnny Depp was in it. I thought
the plot description (which was vague) sounded like every other
girl-crazy sex comedy released after "Animal House," and I got what I
expected.

To be fair this is entertaining. No, it's not a great movie. It's not
very well made. It's crude. It's sexist. It's all about sex.

But that's exactly what it's supposed to be. Graded by the standards of
its genre, it works.

It's about two kids (one of whom is played by Johnny Depp) who gain
access to a private resort in the middle of the Caribbean (presumably).
There's no backdrop. We don't even know how they got in to the resort.
And they look about 16, so it's odd to see them going after women in
their 30s and 40s (sometimes succeeding).

Depp wasn't famous yet (correct me if I'm wrong but this was his first
starring role in a film to speak of?) and this certainly didn't help
boost his career (he took a considerably smaller role in Oliver Stone's
"Platoon" the year after) but he displays charisma and good charm that
would carry on into his later movies.

The film's take-it-as-it-is attitude makes it entertaining. It's a
simple sex comedy with crude laughs and running gags, a lot of which
aren't very funny, a few of which are, almost all of which are at the
least amusing.

Worth catching if you see it on cable some time.
