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 »

The Worst Gidget
10 November 2007 | by (Maryland) – See all my reviews

I'm 21, but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate or love the Gidget movies. My friends look very puzzled when I mention how much I love these movies. However, "Gidget Goes to Rome," gets no love from me and was by far the most boring Gidget to date. Cindy Carol, as Gidget, did not click with me the way Sandra Dee and Deborah Walley did. I don't mean to put her down or bash her but she didn't have that spunk that the previous Gidget's had. The best part about the movie was the gorgeous Moondoggie, but even he couldn't save this film. I'm not sure why they had a new Gidget every movie (maybe no one wanted to stay on) but I really wish they could have gotten Sandra or Deborah back. Even Sally Field's television version of Gidget was much better than Cindy Carol's portrayal.
