Bye Bye, Baby (1989)

How bad is it? It's a filmed vacation with some bad plotting.
Should you see it? No.

This shot has everything worth seeing in the film.

This film is an excuse to show Carol Alt and Brigitte Nielsen in swimsuits. A married couple in Italy fight, break up, go on separate vacations, but end up in the same hotel in Mauritius, where they continue to fight and make up endlessly in very contrived circumstances. It doesn't work as comedy because it's uncomfortable to watch and also because the pacing is off. Nielsen plays a pool shark (she bends over a lot) and also sings on the soundtrack. Alt blows a line, but they didn't bother to re-shoot. Also, it appears that people in Italy speak English, rather than Italian.
