A Treasure Trove of Musical Delights
10 May 2000 | by (Out there in the dark) – See all my reviews

Many have commented on the B-Movie quality of "Hey Boy, Hey Girl". Since the stars were not experienced actors, more challenging material may not have been wise. They both do quite well here, considering no one is watching for the acting. The main reason for watching is to see these incredibly talented, appealing entertainers captured on film at their peak. It is such a pleasure to hear Prima's wonderful blend of rhythm & blues and Italian-American pop. His energy is irresistable. As for Smith, the sheer beauty of the voice and the intelligence of her singing deserve more recognition.

Prima developed a kind of performance that entertains at a visceral level, while at the same time offering deep musical satisfaction. The jumping and swinging of his band in combination with Smith's famous dead-pan demeanor make an indescribable effect. The viewer wants them to go on forever.

"Hey Boy, Hey Girl" is a primary candidate for video release. And a DVD would be ideal for singling out the wonderful musical gems that this movie contains.
