In the movie Poolboy: Drowning Out the Fury, Kevin Sorbo plays the titular character, a former Vietnam War veteran named Sal Bando who now works as a pool cleaner in Los Angeles. The film is a satirical take on the classic "blaxploitation" movies of the 1970s, and follows Sal as he becomes embroiled in a series of violent and absurd situations.

The film uses a framing device where a fictional film critic named JB (played by Ross Patterson) is hosting a retrospective of Sal's career, which includes clips from his various adventures. Through these clips, we see Sal as a sort of superhero, battling a variety of villains and evading numerous attempts on his life.

One of Sal's primary antagonists is a group of neo-Nazis led by Adolf Hitler (played by Danny Trejo). Sal's girlfriend, Sarah (played by Melissa Molinaro), is kidnapped by the group, leading to a climactic showdown at their secret compound.

In addition to the main storyline, the film features a number of surreal interludes and tangential subplots. For example, one clip depicts Sal being cursed by a group of Mexican witches, while another shows him competing in a high-stakes game of poker against a group of oil sheiks.

Overall, Poolboy: Drowning Out the Fury is a raunchy and often offensive movie that revels in its own absurdity. It's not a film for everyone, but those who enjoy over-the-top comedy and irreverent humor may find something to enjoy here.

Poolboy: Drowning Out the Fury is a 2011 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 29 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.5.
