Well, this is shaping up to be a big weekend for girl-watchers. The Miss Universe pageant is on Monday, but for those folks who can't wait until then to see women in bikinis, Piranha 3D is in theaters, too. I've seen the movie and plan to have a review of Piranha 3D posted for the newspaper, soon.

Hey, someone in my community has to warn all the upright citizens about this flick -- it's absolutely filled with gore and naked women.

It's set during Spring Break in Lake Victoria, Arizona, a venue which is totally made up. No doubt Arizona, already in the doghouse over their stance on illegal immigration, will now do even less tourist business now that this movie is out.

Piranha 3D is made in the best tradition of schlock B-movies, based on the original Piranha movies made some three decades ago. You can read more about the making of the movie and the inspiration behind it in this piece over at Entertainment Weekly

As everyone knows by now Kelly Brook (pictured) is in the movie, playing a sexy "Wild Wild Girl" in an obvious takeoff of Girls Gone Wild. Jerry O'Connell is even more hilarious as the Joe Francis imitator. There's even a phony Wild Wild Girls website up. They really went whole hog with it.

Of course Kelly is having a big month already after posing for her hot Playboy spread, now on newsstands. The pictorial can be summed up by this famous line once uttered in a Seinfeld episode: "They're real, and they're spectacular."

What I didn't expect was for Kelly to also get naked in Piranha 3D! I knew she was going to be wearing a bikini for most of the movie, but she also has a hilarious underwater nude scene with co-star Riley Steele, with these two babes kissing each other on the mouth!

Some girls have all the luck. More on Piranha 3D to come.
