The Dave Clark Five,
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 »
How many times must I warn you to stay away from girls?
But she was someone to talk to.
Oh yes, it all starts with talking, yakity-yakity-yak. But the moment the talking stops, my boy. you're in trouble.
You have an evil mind.
I'm old enough to enjoy it. You're not. And keep the door locked.

British pop group Herman's Hermits land in Los Angeles to play the Rose Bowl, but what they really want to do is see the sights and meet some girls "to talk to". They're pursued by a scientist collecting data on the band for NASA, who are thinking of using the group's moniker on the new spaceship, a would-be actress who wants to link her name with theirs to generate publicity, and a blonde Shelley Fabares who wants the group to perform at her mother's charity event at the snooty Ocean Club. The Hermits sing many hookless tunes, one of which is entitled "A Must To Avoid", which may well have served as this film's subtitle. Although Southern California looks lovely (like a big, shiny department store), there's no satirical wit in the writing, and Herman's Hermits have no personality, no distinction, and no charisma. Fabares gets the only good song, "Make Me Happy", and her sweetly out-of-it presence is a nice distraction to the screaming teenage fans, who are mostly shot swarming from below the knees. *1/2 from ****
