All-American Bikini Car Wash' DVD: Saved By the Bell: The Erotic College Years'

  • All American Bikini Car Wash
The recent Monarch Home Entertainment DVD release of the 2015 teencom "All-American Bikini Car Wash" is a textbook example of a neo-modern '80s raunchy comedy intended for horny high school boys who believe that college is a four-year frat party. 

The neo-modern vibe commences with laid-back (five-year?) senior Jack lying back and reading a text while his topless girlfriend rides him. We soon then meet his wildman roomie/bff Vex, other roomie nerdy Urkel clone Marvin, and the gal pal who rounds out this quartet of "Saved By the Bell" clones.

The sits that promptly cause com in this entertaining bit off fluff is that the disgusted father/landlord of Jack is frustrated by his son not being more diligent and responsible and a professor whose final Jack has failed making a trade that requires that Jack (with th help of et al) manage the titular small business in exchange for a passing grade.

Jack and the Jack Attack turning the formerly traditional enterprise into one with scantily clad employees does not initially cause hilarity but does set the stage for such highly amusing antics. A first meeting with aptly named textbook gangster Big Tony who runs a protection racket is laugh-filled, but his uber-hyper (and dim-witted) enforcer Bobby Bullets steals that scene and every other one in which he appears. 

Of course, the suds hit the Ferrari in roughly the final 15 minutes of the film. Both the father and professor of Jack find out what has been going on at home and in the workplace and are on the brink of coming down hard on him until an equally predictable turn-of-events leads to a Hollywood ending, complete with every boy getting the girl with whom he should end up.

The same rationale applies to watching "Bikini" as does regarding the similar films of 30 years ago; it is semi-clean escapist fun that makes a hot summer full of national turmoil bearable for 90 minutes.
