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

When the teens take the mini-submarine out, the internal shots show a cabin space large enough to fit four standing adults, plus all the band's gear, with room to spare. The external shots, however, clearly show a model that is barely the size of the single rescue diver. See more »

Quotes

Merv Griffin: Ladies and gentlemen, we'd like to present to you a very special segment of our show from a very special place. I'm in a house somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean, under 90 feet of water, speaking to you from the very eye of Hurricane Hazel. So now you music lovers, fasten your seat belts, for the first time anywhere, anyplace, a brand new rock group called "The Green Onion", and their manager, Nate Ashbury, tells me he is stoned on these shouters, that they're mellow yellow, turned on and groovy ...

Must See TV with the Kids
9 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

This movie was released the year I was born. I was privilege to it some years later as a weekend movie. I have long since tried to find it on VHS. I've even put my wife, (who was 13 at release) on the hunt for the movie. The movie had so many realistic(now) properties in it. Then, it was truly unconceivable of a family living under the sea. I can still hear the song in my head after all these years. Hopefully I'll find this movie to add to my collection. Its definitely a must see with the kids. Can anyone at that time actually believe that we could live under water. I can only say its like the Jetsons leave their high rise and take the plunge into the ocean. The creators had a great for-sight into the future. Who knows, even now; someone may bring up the idea again for a sitcom. Hmmmmmmmm.
