" I don't Care what anyone says I like Hawaii", 6 August 1999
Author: Kristen M from Minnesota

Gidget Goes Hawaiian is a good movie despite what other people say. O.k., so its another of "beach" movie made in the '60's But this one, to me, stands out. It doesn't focus all on the beach, but partly on the "games" people play. This is, in my opinion, the best of the Gidget movies, TV movies, and TV shows.
