Outrageously Bad
14 June 2018 | by drednmSee all my reviews

Joey Dee and the Starlighters were a New Jersey-based pop group of the 1950s and 60s. They had a #1 hit with "Peppermint Twist."

Lead singer Joey Dee starred in two films. This is his second and last film. The title refers to Dee and his intended bride, Piper (Jeri Lynn Frazer) taking an ocean liner to France where he has been hired to sing, even though they are not married. Unmarried, iper's mama (Jeri Archer) consents if they take a chaperon. Stuck with this job is the droll Kay Medford as Aggie.

Onboard the ship, they get involved in an ongoing spat between a French girl named Coco (Lisa James) and her dumb boyfriend (Richard Dickens). Piper gets jealous and so she sidles up to an older lounge singer (Gary Crosby) to make Joey jealous.

That's it. That's the whole plot. Along the way, Joey Dee sings several songs that have the general population going crazy doing the twist. Crosby, Frazer, and even Medford also get to sing numbers. None of the songs are memorable.

Notable among the non-sailing members of the cast are Jeri Archer as the mother. She made only a handful of films in the 1960s but was immortalized as the model for the character Belle Poitrine in the best-selling novel "Little Me." Photos of Belle were interspersed among the chapters of this famous fake biography. Also of note in the first major film role for Charles Nelson Reilly as Claypoole the dress designer in the opening sequence.

A time capsule to be sure, especially for those devotees of the twist.
