The film version of the song "Slow Twistin'" has an extra verse that does not appear on the single or album. Additionally, in the 2010 edition of the film, some words have been deleted, towards the end of the song, which may indicate the presence of "suggestive" lyrics. See more »

A very entertaining film with music that takes me back to my senior year in high school. Unlike most of these rock n roll movies, this one clearly shows middle aged and even elderly adults enjoying the music of teenagers. I find that refreshing, although mostly unrealistic. I also enjoy watching Georgine Darcy's(Madge) and her "brother" doing their dance routine. Georgine is a real pro and makes the show more enjoyable.(I would love to know how to contact her.) A real neat movie!
