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

A terrible, groovy classic, man!
28 October 2003 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Yes, this film is terrible- horrific and just plain bad. But I like it, and I'm not ashamed to say it! Normally, this is not my kind of film, as I prefer obscure classics. But this film is so bad, so truly bad- it's good. See how earnest the cast treats this dreck? They're really into it, man! And what a story! Don't you wish that your pals picked you up in their little red sports car on a free trip to Palm Springs after you screw up on the "Whiz Bang" TV show because you want to be a STAR? Gil Peterson, as the erstwhile mutant heartthrob, has to be one of the world's worst actors... and he has ever so much competition. My fave moments: Don't miss Teri ("Young Frankenstein") Garr as a go-go dancer! Don't miss Gil Peterson soulfully singing an uptempo version of that Doris Day classic, "My Secret Love." And please, don't miss my favorite character in the whole darned movie: that sad little dancer doing his darndest James Brown shake and shimmy- I nearly died from laughter.
