This comedy is the first episode of the five-movie series "The Cohens and Kellys." In each movie the rivalry between the Jewish and Irish business owners is chronicled. This time they play competing manufacturers of bathing suits. The story centers upon their children, a son and a daughter who shock both sets of parents by introducing a new, very risque, line of swimsuits in Atlantic City. The parents soon change their tunes when the money starts rolling in.
