Gidget Lays an Egg
1 July 2008 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

"Gidget Gets Married" is probably the worst of the Gidget films (an argument could be made for "Gidget Goes to Rome"). There are some good performances in it: Paul Lynde returns as Louis B. Latimer, and Don Amiche is actually pretty funny as Jeff's stuffed shirt boss. Monie Ellis is good enough as Gidget--and awfully pretty, sporting the sweetest buck tooth smile. Michael Burns is fairly lame as Jeff (whose last name is Stevens in this incarnation; what's up with that?). At the end of the day though, the best actors in the world would be hard pressed to save this poor excuse for a screenplay; this dog has fleas.

"Gidget Gets Married" is a 1972 ABC MOW, and it smells like one.
