Feldman portrays a ne’er-do-well water skier hired by owner Jack Nance to serve as recreation director of Lakeside Water Ski Camp. Their enemy is Sarah Douglas of nearby Twin Oaks camp who wants to buy Nance out and use his site for real estate development.
Two camps are competing in an annual ski meet, and Douglas’ henchmen contrive to sabotage Feldman’s efforts. Lakeside wins anyway, and film climaxes in a corny winner-take-all rematch.
Lame plotting is just an excuse for some OK water skiing stunts. Filmmaker Bob Logan takes care to include as much T&A jiggle scenes of his scantily clad female cast (such as a game of strip charades), which should gain high marks among adolescent vid renters.
Feldman’s act is obnoxious, but that’s what the script calls for. He even includes some self-deprecating humor at fadeout, when he turns to the camera to protest that he’s a movie star: “I was in ‘Goonies.’ ”
Nance, who starred in David Lynch’s “Eraserhead,” is amusing, as is the colorfully monikered chubby comedian Johnny Cocktails. Distaff cast is pretty but not given much to do acting-wise.
