Way Out? No. Cornball? YES!

I first heard about this movie from the book "Barris TV & Movie Cars," by George Barris & David Fetherston, and immediately, I wanted to know if it was as corny as it looked. I later found out that the book mistook Carole Shelyne for Karen Jensen, and that it makes the 1966-68 Batman TV Series look like Hill Street Blues.

This crackpot spy spoof, is about an employee of a secret agent named Homer(Jonathan Daly), who impersonates one, when he's hired by a beach bunny (Karen Jensen), to stop an organization called "F.L.U.S.H.," lead by a villain with as bad slavic accent(John Lawrence), from destroying rock'n'roll. All the while, he's being hounded by F.L.U.S.H.'s agents, many of them gorgeous women, and one geeky, boy-crazy friend of the beach bunny (Carole Shelyne). As Marvin, Shelyne's character is supposed to be ugly, but this was made at a time when 'ugly' could be defined as having thick glasses and an aggressive sexual desire. The bands in this movie were supposed to be "way out," but even by 1966 standards, that's far from the truth. The only way out thing about it was Homer's car (the ZZR), F.L.U.S.H.'s motorcycle, and a custom T-Bird Sports Roadster at the beginning. The movie is terrific for the bubble-gum set, and anyone with a goofy sense of humor, but if you try to find it at your local video store, the clerk will hand you a copy of the 1998 Jennifer Lopez movie, so look for it on cable-TV instead.

Ironically, 18 years after this movie was made, a REAL organization was establish to destroy rock'n'roll, as well as rap, by a woman who is now the Second Lady of the United States, but it isn't called F.L.U.S.H.,...it's called the P.M.R.C.!
