Storyline

Samantha Vance inherits the Tiki Hotel when her father dies. She decides to fix it up but has problems drumming up business. Her friends throw a party at the hotel and an idea is born to make it the "Bikini Hotel" with all of the staff members wearing bikinis. This elicits jealousy in the nearby Regent Hotel who wish to turn Samantha's hotel into a parking lot. It all culminates in a competition where the winner gets to stay.

The men support the women as Foils
30 January 2013 | by LCedarwoodExtraRichLSee all my reviews

As far as B-Movies go, anything with Julie Strain in it deserves a look. Making or breaking whether or not you will stay with this movie are the two characters at the beginning. The camaraderie they share is reminiscent of college dorm life in the 90s, so whether you like that or not goes a long way. (But the haircut of the "Remote" character really bothers me).

After watching this movie, I feel affirmations of what a "good" B-movie is: not needing much brain activity, with little anecdotes of culture and creativity along the way. Seeing the Asian men find ways to get the "bikini maids" to clean their rooms and bend over in provocative ways will impress many men, but clearly demoralizes women. But that is clearly par for B-movies, what the director is going for. Stupid actors in the form of Tim Lovestedt give this movie the rating it gets (the other guy is pretty good actually). His dimwitted nature is only outdone by him poking his head into things to appear even more dimwitted.
