I want my time back. The acting was bad, plot subpar, jokes flat. It was all bad. If you respect yourself and actually enjoy movies, don't watch this one. Not sure what everyone else reviewing this was smoking, but maybe if I had some, I would have enjoyed it too.

You'll like this if you're into "confused privileged white boys get into stupid situations, but somehow succeed in the end" type movies and random nudity/boob shots.

Resembles 1983 Risky Business movie but more shallow

Premise like the 1983 Risky Business movie - but with more disrespect to women and superficial moral depravity

Lots of good laughs.

Just a lot of fun. We have Matthew Lillard who lies to his family about his employment, they believe he is a big shot and instead he is a Poolboy. Brett Davern is his cousin who was going to intern for a senator and that falls through so Harvard falls through and he goes to get a job with his successful cousin and, uh oh, he finds out. What happens after is a kind of modern "Risky Business" They begin a brothel in a pool clients house while they are away. Lots of good laughs and we have Tom Arnold to boot! he is very funny too.

Funny and raunchy

Funny and raunchy. There is nudity in this film. Tom Arnold is great as the crazy guy and Matthew Lillard is great in it too. I loved him in his comedies. What happened to him? He needs to get back into doing comedies.
