Storyline

Marine scientist Fred Miller designs the world's first underwater home, but when the business magnate funding his work threatens to end the project, Miller volunteers to live in it with his own family to prove it's practical. The underwater clan includes his water-phobic wife and his daughter and son, who are part of a rock and roll band. They bring along the lead singer and drummer. Along the way, they have to contend with a competing engineer who promises to mine the ocean floor for the businessman. A record producer likes their music and books them on TV, leading the kids to try to escape to the surface. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

Throughout the movie, the kids are singing and recording themselves without mikes. In reality, no sound system, especially in the sixties, could pick up their voices without mikes. Also, the guitar would drown out their singing voices without mikes. See more »

Got this on DVD
26 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of those films that you get more for the nostalgia than any great quality. It is representative of the those 60's pop culture films that were made just to pass an afternoon. The real joy of it now is watching Tony Randall, Jim Backus, Janet Leigh, a (very young) Richard Drefuss, Roddy McDowell and the rest in a "family friendly" vehicle, peppered by harmless "Boyce and Hart"-like Rock and Roll. Made by Jack Arnold, The Creature director, backed up by the producer of Flipper, it's a nice romp. I saw it when I was younger and could not help but get the DVD, which has a nice crisp transfer. I was amused upon re-watching it as an adult to see that Leigh and Randall seem to be acting in different movies; he's applying just the right light, frothy touch while she is dead-on serious as if this were some deep drama instead of just a piece of light entertainment. It makes her character almost too intense at times.
