Vicki London was originally cast with a larger role, but declined to disrobe in preproduction, so her part was changed with Joy Harmon's, and much of London's subsequent screen time was cut. Her agent kept her in the movie at full pay, while London didn't seem to object to what happened, since she saw the whole thing as forgettable. See more »

Fred, what's going to happen to us?
I don't know. As long as it lasts, I guess we'll have to live with it.

I first saw this great campy film 20 years ago on TV and its got a great mixture of INTENTIONAL camp, the beginnings of a pre-hippy teen rebelliousness (1965), and some great music from Beau Brummels. The key to this film is not to take it seriously...the cast and crew didn't. "Genius" (Ron Howard) invents "GOO", a substance that turns rebel teens into giants who take over a village and the only hope is for Genius to find an antedote. He does just in time and it all works out in the end. But not before we get some giant ducks dancing to BBs live perfomance of "Woman" and other great pre-psychedelic background music. It's a trippy comedy of it's era. You can trash it, but then you miss the point. Also don't miss those sexy giant teen girls; when they grow their bikinis pop off.
