Last but perhaps least of Frankie/Annette beach party flicks, 19 June 2007
Author: keesha45 from United States

You know it had to end eventually, but this put the wraps on the Frankie Avalon/Annette Funicello team in the beach party series of pictures that defined the genre. Although far from the best of the series, it still had some pretty good parts. Buster Keaton had a memorable role as the witch doctor and his daughter, the witch, turns out to be Liz Montgomery, who was on hiatus from her BEWITCHED series, and put in an appearance as the nose-twitching witch she also played in her husband Bill Asher's sitcom. Besides those two actors and the always entertaining Harvey Lembeck as Von Zipper, there are some fairly good bits to recommend here. Beverly Adams stands out as the eye candy and the Kingsmen perform a couple of songs. The claymation credits in the opening was a nice touch and the climactic motorcycle race was mildly amusing. Actually, the musical numbers inserted into the plot made sense, but could have been performed better. Taken together, it wasn't half bad as a way to end what had been a pretty entertaining film series. Like most series that were cranked out by Hollywood, it has its pluses and minuses, but, generally speaking, the series as a whole rates a thumbs up from me and would be worthwhile to both see and to own.
