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

Merv Griffin makes mention that he is live from the eye of Hurricane Hazel. Hurricane Hazel was the worst hurricane of the 1954 Atlantic hurricane season and one of the worst hurricanes of the 20th century. Due to the severity of the hurricane, the name was retired and therefore would never have been a hurricane name in the year the movie supposedly took place. See more »

There'd Be More Room In The Sub If Roddy's Hair Weren't So Long
27 April 2005 | by (minneapolis, minnesota, on the planet Earth) – See all my reviews

There's an optimism in the visual style of this film -- along with hundreds of other Sixties comedies -- that will never be seen again. The colors are bright and heavily saturated. There isn't much narrative, but does it really matter when you've got dolphins, seals, sharks and Tony Randall swimming around under the sea? And seeing Richard Dreyfuss lip- syncing to groovy aquatic themed tunes in purple pants is really far out. It's nice to see (and hear) Janet Leigh scream without worrying about her getting hacked to bits like in "Psycho" or be tormented by hoodlums like in "Touch Of Evil." I always enjoy Jim Backus too.
