Throughout the movie, the kids are singing and recording themselves without mikes. In reality, no sound system, especially in the sixties, could pick up their voices without mikes. Also, the guitar would drown out their singing voices without mikes. See more »
It's a goofy lightweight comedy. Mostly it's unremarkable, the kind of movie I'd give a 5 score out of 10. But the underwater scenes, especially the ones with the dolphins, are kind of fun; and it's also kind of fun to see Roddy McDowell, Jim Backus, and Ken Berry hamming it up.
There are several groovy 60's pop music songs, the costumes and haircuts are extremely 60's, and the 60's slang is so silly I wonder if they made up half of it. Merv Griffin appears in a cameo as himself. Tony Randall even sings one song!
You will probably enjoy seeing it once but you probably won't want to buy a copy. See it sometime when you are in the mood for a large dose of the 1960's.
