Hold on & hang in there for the music.
18 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hold On! is a fairly typical teen flick from the mid sixties. Check your brain at door.

The appeal here is the music. One will hear a top notch take of "Where Were You When I Needed You." There's the hit "A Must To Avoid." "All The Things I Do For You Baby" is covered. And the title track "Hold On!" is sure to please. That's four Sloan-Barri/P.F. Sloan songs in one movie! The Hermits play another goodie called "Wild Love" and Shelley Fabares melts hearts with "Make Me Happy." The soundtrack LP may we the way to go for those who prefer a meaningful movie experience but those who love "all things sixties" might like Hold On!
