Goofs

The strawberry ice cream cones that Herman and Louisa buy at the stand are a completely different shape when they arrive at the roller coaster (they have grown into a distinct two-scoop shape; at the stand they were just large blobs). See more »

An incredibly ridiculous movie!
4 September 2009 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

There are a lot of comments on what a ridiculous movie this was. And those comments describe this movie perfectly. Yes, it's true. But get real! This movie is supposed to be ridiculous. The plot of the movie is about an English band who tour the United States. (In 1966, the English Invasion still ruled the radio and British groups were still being mobbed by screaming fans!)

Herman's Hermits come to the States and are greeted by wild screaming fans. The frenzy gets so far out of hand that NASA gets swamped with demands that the name of the latest rocket to be launched be changed to "Herman's Hermits".

Most musicals involve a screwball plot. HOLD ON is no exception. Only a complete idiot would expect a "meaningful plot" in a movie like this. It is pure escapist entertainment played up to a ridiculous level.

I saw the movie in 1967, which was a long time ago. So I don't remember if there were any bad guys in the plot of not. What I do remember is that the real plot of this movie is the showcasing of the latest (in 1966) sounds by Herman's Hermits, who at that time were close to taking second place to the Beatles in popularity.

I gave the movie a 7 because it was a movie from the mid 1960s that may be outdated by today's standards. Some of the comedy of the time may not be so funny today. Think BEWITCHED (1964 TV series) versus BEWITCHED (2005) and you'll get the drift.
