Trivia

The interior set used for the Clatterbug's main home is the exact same set used for their house in Myrtle Beach. A few small changes were made to make it look different. See more »

Goofs

The Maroon Cadillac DeVille convertible that the girls drive to Myrtle Beach is a 1964 model and since new models traditionally did not appear until September of the year before (9/63 for a 1964 model) it should not appear in a movie set in June (right after HS graduation) 1963. You can tell it's a 1964 model by the maroon (body colored) band across the center of the grille. See more »

What a great film!!
11 April 2000 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Hi everybody, just a short note to say that this movie was soooo much fun! It is one of my favourite films. It's set in the 60's with great music, cool cars, good girls and bad boys, dancing and romancing! It makes me wish I had lived in that era. The cast is amazingly talented and attractive!!! 10/10 I wouldn't change a thing, it's perfect! Watch it now!!
