Editorial Reviews

In this unearthed lost movie from 1990, a Vietnam Veteran Sal Bando (Sorbo), tortured by his past as a poolboy, returns home to Van Nuys, California, and a country he doesn't recognize, in which it seems only Mexicans run pool-cleaning companies. Bando sets off on a brutal mission to reclaim his "rightful" vocation and enact revenge on the man (Trejo) who killed his wife and son.

Format: DVD
"Poolboy: Drowning Out the Fury" is not a serious action film. Clearly, the title explains it's genre. 'Drowning Out the Fury' is a sequel to "Poolboy" - a film moviegoers never heard of because the studio banned it from being released, or so claims fictioness filmmaker Saint James St. James. It was shot in 1990 by Saint James St. James who at the time was 10 years old. The film stars Kevin Sorbo (hey, wasn't he Hercules?!) as the film's hero who returns to America after serving in Nam. When he returns, he discovers his nation (and the pool cleaning business) has been hijacked by Mexicans. He then proceeds to clean up the nation and re-claim the pool cleaning business once and for all. The script is more racist than "Blazing Saddles". It's all in good fun if you don't take the jokes seriously. Danny Trejo co-stars along with other notable appearances by Jason Mewes and Richard Karn.

Once in awhile, there comes a movie so powerful, so thought provoking, and so prophetic that you just want to stop everything you're doing, stand up, and slow clap. This is that movie. St. James St. James continues to defy critics and any sexual orientation thrown at him. He is a visionary, even though he can only see out of one eye. God bless this film. Buy it and let it live inside of you.

Reminded me of Garth Marenghi's Darkplace, except this had more jokes and mistakes. The review who said the movie was awful made me laugh, it's the worst film of all time on purpose. It was supposed to be bad. Kudos to the film makers for taking the time to make this a classic. The credits are the greatest thing I've ever seen. Who knew Sorbo was funny? Great Film.

Format: DVD
He's the Poolboy, a "hardcore Vietnam vet with eight-six purple hearts and was trained to kill, and has just come home to find [his] wife and son dead, drowning in a pool." To seek vengeance, he wages war with the local Mexican immigrants; when he kills the ninth favorite brother of Caesar, the war escalates into all-out mayhem.

Suffice it to say that POOLBOY: DROWNING OUT THE FURY is not for everyone. Its over-the-top xenophobia, violence, and sex is meant to incite and push buttons, and get a few guilty laughs (a sax-playing Hitler?). So if you're the kind of person who doesn't like hard-R comedies, stop reading this review; it won't do anything for you.

POOLBOY isn't the greatest grindhouse parody of recent years; but it's off-the-cuff vulgarity and humor make it a memorable entry into this new genre. Kevin Sorbo has great comedic timing, as does the film's writer Ross Patterson (who co-stars as Saint James St. James, the director of the film-within-a-film). Danny Trejo does his Danny Trejo thing (which admittedly no one else can do); also look for Jason Mewes, the vocal half of Jay & Silent Bob. The entire cast/crew provide jokes that are (often literally) below the belt; they may not all be winners, but they come so fast and furious that it won't really matter. Grab a beer, put aside your tender sensibilities, and prepare to have a few laughs that you may feel bad about later. Those are the best kind, right?

I watched this movie with my friend a few hours ago, and it was awesome. It was very dirty, racist, sexy, and my style of comedy. This is a movie within a movie where director Saint James St. James tells how 'Poolboy II' was deemed too terrible to release. Kevin Sorbo stars as a Vietnam Veteran named Sal Bando. After the war, Sal comes home to start his own pool-cleaning business. When his wife and son are killed, he goes on a one-man war against the Mexicans. I highly recommend POOLBOY: DROWNING OUT THE FURY!!!

I like this movie! Reminds me of Naked Gun! In fact, it's a movie inside another movie, good idea! Kevin Sorbo is great on comedy and it's a good movie to watch and laugh... plus, Kevin looks soooo hot!

For a spoof movie,Poolboy is good for some laughs! Kevin Sorbo is pretty hot looking in the camflouge shorts and tank top,not to mention a couple of scenes in which he is in military uniform. Anyway,if you want to have fun and laugh a lot,then check this movie out!

This movie is hilarious...I didn't quite know what it was going to be but it had me laughing out loud. The writers are genius in writing something like this and the actors all did such a great job with this way out comedy.
