~Plot Synopsis~
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.
