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

Wonderful Family Movie
21 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was at the local Borders Books and saw this DVD. I was so excited! It was one of my favorite movies when I was a kid. Why? I loved the cute songs and the whole idea of living under the water. Plus, I was really into Flipper and loved the sea creatures in the film. I remember dreaming about living underwater and playing pretend ( I was probably 7-8 when I saw it the first time). My husband and I have 3 kids at home 16, 14 and 11. My husband had never seen but he knew all the actors and wanted to see them. Everyone in the family watched it and liked it very much. Lots of smiles and laughs! The kids are watching it for the second time today. We love all kinds of movies but love family type movies the best. Like all the great family movies and TV shows of that time, you will have a warm, happy feeling when it is over! I am so glad this is on DVD to be cherished and shared for generations. We don't have TV (would have it if the shows were like the late 60's early 70's)so my kids would never have been able to see it with out it being on Video or DVD. Thank you Technology for giving us choices!
