As soon as he sees her for the first time, Mike Samson, the big man on his southern California beach and the object of desire of any girl on the beach, knows that he wants Delilah Dawes, who is in the area visiting their mutual friend, Pebbles. Despite Pebbles' assertions that Mike is a great guy, Delilah finds him arrogant and conceited, and flatly rejects his advances. After Mike secretly overhears Delilah tell Pebbles that she would rather date a modest, serious boy who doesn't necessarily have to be a star athlete like Mike, Mike decides to conduct an experiment to see if Delilah is true to her word or full of hot air: he will masquerade as his serious, quiet, studious, uncoordinated and bespectacled "brother", Herbert, who in reality does not exist in any form. The ploy works as Delilah starts to date Herbert in order to bring him out of his shell. Mike's ability to pull off the masquerade is hindered by his roommate/Pebbles' boyfriend, the dimwitted Woody. Complications ensue ... Written by

This movie takes place in the summer, as is made clear by some conversation between Woody and Mike early in the film. When Woody, 'Herbert' and Delilah drive downtown, some shots reveal a good amount of Christmas decor (neon Santa Clauses all down the street can be seen in one of the scene's first shots). Also during the downtown drive, a theater marquee lists December dates. On top of this, some scenes that take place on residential streets show trees well into Autumnal states. See more »
Tail-end Beach Party franchise starring one-time Gidget Deborah Walley and the terminally bland Tommy Kirk. Kirk plays a shameless, arrogant womaniser trying to dupe feminist Walley into going out with him by donning a nerd costume. After she exposes the ruse the pair contest a series of challenges (power boat race, running, skateboarding et al) to determine who is the dominant gender. Bobby Pickett and Suzie Kaye watch from the sidelines throughout as their best mates.
Overall, it's right down there with the abominable "Catalina Caper" for corniness and mediocrity, even by Beach Party standards. The only highlight is the early and prominent appearance of Sid Haig as "Daddy" a bee-hive bearded entrepreneur, a role that does anything but pre-empt his subsequent bikie image in the years ahead. Walley is bubbly and attractive, but her feminist leanings are managed very conservatively by director Rothman, a Roger Corman stable-hand whose credits also include the first "Student Nurses" instalment.
The often overcast conditions and Walley's hypothermic looking complexion do little to raise the temperatures of this tepid tale, with little to recommend except for some interesting personnel. If Walley, Haig or director Rothman hold no interest for you, and Bobby Pickett's "Monster Mash" isn't on your I-Pod, then doubtful there'll be much at all to keep you awake.
