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
In the opening of the film, when the band are at home recording their song, the tape recorder is on "PLAY". The record button, to the immediate right of the play button, is not pressed down. See more »
Sigh. I really loved this movie as a kid!! It aired once on the Family Channel (now it's PAX) and then I lost the VHS or taped over it entirely. I recently found a really crappy version on Videobeat.com that is so fuzzy that it's not even worth watching it. It really isn't worth the price you pay for it either as some guy just recorded it from his own VHS recording so you know how that goes. But if you are really desperate like I was to hear "GLUB" again and to relive some happier times, then try Videobeat.com. I wish they would release this movie on DVD so that everyone can share the magic of Glub and the house under the sea. Sure, the acting is campy and the story line is lame, but the music makes it much better (even though they are lip singing and not even playing their instruments). Plus, you gotta love a Richard Dreyfuss film!
