Trivia

The red sport car (Sunbeam Alpine) Todd and Craig steal during the chase is similar to the car (Sunbeam Tiger) used by Agent 86 Maxwell Smart in Get Smart (1965). See more »

Goofs

During the chase scene at the end, the "cable car" with Dr. Goldfoot and Igor goes off the tracks to continue chasing Craig and Todd over streets and over the Golden Gate Bridge, which have no tracks. San Francisco cable cars run by grabbing a moving cable beneath the street, controlled by the lever you see the drivers of the cars handling. The red "cable car" is obviously a motorized trolley car.

Lowbrow fun.
5 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

A totally dumb, freewheeling comedy, good for some lowbrow fun. With its mad scientists, bikini-clad girls, laser guns and silly slapstick gags, this film has definite cult possibilities, but it's never really very funny (despite campy performances by Price and Frankie Avalon). Plus, the mismatch between on-location filming and rear-projection techniques in the final big chase sequence is so obvious it becomes awfully distracting. (**)
