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 »

All in all it wasn't bad...
2 April 2000 | by (Minnesota) – See all my reviews

The movie itself was ok, good scenery and all, but the acting wasn't exactly the best. Cindy Carol wasa terrible choice for gidget because of a lack of acting skills. If you look past the fact that her acting was lousy the movie is pretty good, the plot is slighlty more mature than the other gidget's. The scenery was great and so was the fashion show sequence. All in all, it wasn't that bad...
