Storyline

Alex is on his way to Harvard but needs a summer internship to qualify for a scholarship. When a job in D.C. falls through, he turns to his glib cousin, Roger, whom he thinks is an aquatic engineer. Roger is, in truth, a Beverly Hills pool boy who offers Alex a job and promises to invent an internship to fool Harvard. When a pool customer with a mansion goes on holiday for six weeks, Roger gets the idea to run a brothel and enlists Alex to keep the books. As the scholarship interview approaches, what could go wrong? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Alex Sperling (Brett Davern of Awkward), fresh out of high-school hooks up with his cousin Roger (Matthew Lillard) when he needs a new internship after his first one is unexpectedly terminated. But turns out Roger exaggerated his place in life and is a mere pool boy. When Roger's place is being fumigated, he decides to stay at a vacationing client's mansion, which he soon turns into a makeshift brothel to help pay for Alex's tuition. Meanwhile Alex is falling for one of the prostitutes.

This film was merely OK for a lazy rainy day afternoon. It's never laugh out loud funny, but it's not as awful as other movies of it's ilk. The only gripes I had was I couldn't really buy Pedro from Napolean Dynamite as anything approaching a 'tough guy' and I still have no clue how they got the great Robert Davi to cameo. But that aside its a serviceable enough film.

Eye Candy: Simona Fusco shows T&A; Janine Habeck, Monica Leigh, Jennifer Walcott, and AJ Alexander get topless
