Trivia

Baseball reference. Gary Marshall, a major baseball fan, likes to reference baseball in his work. In this instance, it's when Jerry Paris, as a brothel patron, wearing a baseball hat, glove, and holding a baseball while the working girl is wearing a catcher's mask, glove, and chest protector, yells out, "What inning is it?"

hokey, pokey, & could have been a lot funnier
23 August 2015 | by (SC Piedmont) – See all my reviews

I give this 6 based solely on the fact that it had Reynolds, Garner, & Scotti in it. It was hokey & saccharine 47 years ago, & it's 4.7 times that now. As the saying goes, "Man, I was there then." The thing was written as though it was 1958, not '68. Compare "Boys' Night Out" (also with Garner), done 6 years earlier, & with a similar plot -- vastly superior.

A lot of the humor is weak & sadly forced. The pseudo-psychedelic artwork & intro don't help much, either. I understand & sympathize with those (presumably also of my generation) who like it, but objectively speaking, this just doesn't go higher than about halfway up the scale. :\
