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

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 ...

We loved this movie when we saw it at the theatre during its original release; I still have fond memories of the pet dolphins cavorting in the living room pool, and of the space-age push-button underwater conveniences (such as that neat pop-up refrigerator). I can even remember the lyrics to "Hey Little Goldfish" and "Glub, Glub"!! As kids we sang those songs for years. I can't wait to rent this one and rock out again with Dreyfuss and the gang! I hope he doesn't mind too much, 'cause I think this movie is a great sixties artifact, with a fun cast and very creative sets.
