Storyline

Hallie Rogers is a pent-up go-go dancer itching for her big break. She's up for a spot on the network rock'n'roll show "Whizbam," a detailed send-up of both "Shindig" and "Hullaballo," but the studio bosses keep giving her the shaft. So Hallie wigs out, escapes from her go-go cage, and steals the mike from Glen Campbell, who's singing onstage at the time. While Glen does all he can to stop this crazy girl on live TV, Hallie shakes and shimmies her way out of impending handcuffs. The audience goes wild, imitating her moves, and when a misdirected camera sends a message out to the nation, a new dance craze is born - the Tantrum! Tony Krum, a teen tycoon begins to manage her booming career. Hallie gets fired from "Whizbam," but her go-go dancing pals take her to Palm Springs, where they see the Leaves perform. She soon meets out-of-step teen idol Cliff Donner, with whom she forms a duo. Written by alfiehitchie

Amazingly bad relic of the swinging sixties
3 March 1999 | by (Mountain View, Ca.) – See all my reviews



Enjoyably bad: This supposed satire of the pop music scene could never have been good, the main character is intrinsically unlikeable. An ambitious and mean pop-singer wannabe gets her big break by brawling on a TV dance show and marries solely to further her career (of course she falls for him, otherwise there would be no plot).

What separates this from all the merely boring flicks out there are the performances.

The combination of the unbelievably horrid lead, the lively, cheesy music, the unbelievable costumes (seemingly designed to show off Ms. Watson's heavy thighs), and Mr. MacDowell make this as watchably bad as an Ed Wood movie.
