Storyline

It is nearly a generation since we've visited Dobie Gillis, and the middle-aged Dobie is nothing like he was as a youth, having has sown all of his wild oats. He's settled into the predictable adult life, married to the reliable Zelda (who was chasing him all through high-school), and assumed his father's role of running the family variety store. All of a sudden, key industries in the town shut down, putting hundreds out of work and severely threatening the local economy. Dobie, as head of the town council, is looked upon to lead the town out of this desperate crisis. When all seems lost, life-long friend Maynard G. Krebs appears, representing an old acquaintance who has a strange demand. Written by Stewart M. Clamen <clamen@cs.cmu.edu>

more cheese than a pizza shop
26 January 2003 | by bbq_s2See all my reviews

This movie was so badly acted and so corny I had to laugh at it, and that is exactly what I mean I laughed at it not with it, also there seemed to be few subtle references to other sixties shows, but as I was drifitng in and out of the house I did not get a chance to really concentrate on the whole movie, I give it 2 stars for the cheese!
