Trivia

June Foray has two uncredited cameo voice roles: the first as the actress in the Italian movie at the drive-in, and the second as the sped-up voice of "Miss Sally" speaking on the phone with Robert Q. Lewis. When her voice is slowed down she can be heard saying, in part, "Donald, did you hang up on me? This is a three-message-unit call!" and "I'm gonna tell your mother about this, the way you're treating me!" See more »

Goofs

About 30 minutes into the movie, when they are on the ski lift, the shadow of the cameraman is visible on the ground below them. See more »

Wet or dry, hot or cold, it's just more of the same
5 January 2000 | by See all my reviews

The only difference between the usual AIP beach movie fluff and this film is that it's colder and they've put on dry clothes. Other than that, it's Frankie, Debbie, Dwayne, and a pre-"Batgirl" Yvonne Craig up to the usual shenanigans. The only plus here is rare film appearances by James Brown, doing the classic "I Feel Good," and Leslie Gore, with what proved to be one of her last big hits, the Marvin Hamlisch composition "Sunshine, Lollipops, and Rainbows." It's for this last reason alone, I think, that this movie used to be frequently aired on AMC's "American Pop" series, often in letterbox to show off the Squaw Valley scenery. Incidentally, at the end of the movie, there's an invitation to watch for the whole crew again in "Cruise Party." As far as I can determine, that film was never made, probably because they finally figured out that, in the wake of the so-called "British Invasion," the beach blanket bimbo genre had finally run its course.
