Storyline

Mike thinks he's hit the jackpot when his girlfriend Nancy's kid brother, who they call Genius, creates a growth compound that results in animals growing to huge proportions. A group of delinquents led by Fred has come to town and when they get their hands the goo, as Genius calls it, their giant size make them unstoppable. While Genius tries to recreate the formula, Mike and other teenagers in town, serve the giants. Genius simply can't reproduce the formula but fortunately comes up with the next best thing.

Quotes

Genius: This time I was sure I had it. It's a very elusive formula.
Elsa: Had what, kiddo?
Genius: Kiddo? I prefer to be called Genius, if you don't mind.
Elsa: Okay, Genius, no offence. What formula?
Genius: For the Goo. There's not much of it, and they want me to make some more. But it's not easy.
Elsa: Why don't we go for a walk, Genius? I'll buy you an ice cream cone.
Genius: I never touch it. It's high in cholesterol. But I'll go for a walk with you.
Elsa: Okay.

Good drive-in fare
6 November 2002 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

Goofy, fun mid 60s has goo in the plot and on the brain. Teenagers go giant with a potion cooked up somehow by little Ron Howard. These giants love to go-go in sexy harem outfits that somehow grow to fit them. Tommy Kirk is, as usual, excellent and amusing -- I think he had real potention to become one of the best actors of his generation. This movie is a bit too cheezy to be exciting or scary, but it's worth a good laugh.
