Storyline

Francis, now 17, is still in love with Moondoggy. She can persuade her parents to allow them a journey to Rome, together with two of her and two of his friends. However they have to take an adult with them, so they choose Peter's eccentric aunt. In Rome they get the beautiful guide Daniela, who's fascinating the guys and making especially Gidget jealous. She starts looking elsewhere herself. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Goofs

Although story is supposed to be set during summer vacation, film was clearly shot in winter as actors' breath frequently condenses in outdoor sequences and there are no throngs of tourists as you'd expect to see during high-season. See more »

As lousy as it sounds...
15 March 2006 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Before the "Gidget" franchise got a shot in the arm via television (with young Sally Field in the title role), she trudged along theatrically, here with Cindy Carol in the lead. 17-year-old Frances Lawrence goes on a chaperoned trip to Italy with boyfriend and gal-pals in tow. Slick but artificial mixture of on-location tourist's folly and set-bound situation comedy isn't at all interesting, despite the efforts by veteran comedy writer Ruth Brooks Flippen. The teens seem tired, Carol exudes very little charisma, and only Don Porter is engaging playing Gidget's dad, a role he filled even more comfortably a few years later on TV. *1/2 from ****
