The boys from the two-part home-grown hit movie Ah Boys To Men are going skinny dipping.

That is if their director, local film-maker Jack Neo, can find a way for them to do it legally. And they are all for it.

The dare-to-bare began last November, when the box-office takings for Ah Boys To Men Part 1 hit $1.5million in just four days.

Back then, local Chinese newspaper Lianhe Wanbao asked Neo, 57, if he would consider getting the male cast of 20-somethings to skinny dip if the box-office takings of both instalments crossed $10 million.

He laughed and said it was a "good suggestion".

Ah Boys To Men went on to collect $6.2 million, making it the highest-grossing local movie to date. Opening here today, Ah Boys To Men 2 continues the story of the recruits going through their basic military training.

This time round, they also have to deal with a series of personal problems.

At the movie's press conference on Wednesday, Neo was reminded of the wager, which he's keen to see through by virtue of Part 1's record-breaking haul.

"I think $6.2 million for Part 1 is an amazing figure, so since we said they would do it, we'll have to do it."

Neo had only one reservation.

"We need to find a way to do it without breaking the law. In international waters, maybe?" he said, laughing.
