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

When Fred rescues Mel Cheever from the HOD, the HOD is listing badly, and sludge is pouring into the cabin from a hatch overhead. However, the sludge falls diagonally, revealing that the camera is tilted to imply the list. See more »

Just want to see this again!
25 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I too, saw this movie as a kid, and will never forget Tony Randall warding off sharks with those balloons. I do, from time to time, still have the "Little Goldfish" song running through my head. All I remember is the refrain, but would love to hear it again. So, any word of a DVD of this movie? I really can't believe that there isn't one of this movie. I have seen so many rotten movies in the discount bargain bin at Wal-Mart, that "Hello Down There" should be released. Just the name recognition of the stars in this movie should be enough for some company to release it. As my peer said in the other comment, Richard Dreyfuss is a draw, so is Tony Randall. Lets get with it people, there should be a release of this classic film showing how culture in the late 60's looked those off us NOT on acid! We need this movie!
