Well I don't give a hmm about a greenback dollar...
31 March 2002 | by JohnSealSee all my reviews

Here's a teen musical-comedy-drama so tame that the singin' folkies actually substitute 'hmmm' for 'damn' when they perform Greenback Dollar. The Young Swingers is 1963's version of all those 50s rock n roll movies where the uptight grown ups try to evict the kids from their happenin' night club. Ho hum. The only point of interest in this otherwise snooze inducing film is the presence of Gene McDaniels, and he doesn't even get to sing 'A Hundred Pounds of Clay'. After ruining the teen musical genre with this effort, director Dexter went on to direct Mini Skirt Mob, the worst biker movie of all time. Star Rod Lauren's next assignment was on the dreadful but enjoyable Crawling Hand, and the delightfully named Molly Bee concluded her film career four years later in Hillbillys in the Haunted House.
