Storyline

Howard Kaylan, a singer for the rock band The Turtles, is about to marry his girlfriend and his band is traveling to England for the first time in the wake of the massive success of their hit single, "Happy Together", but fears that the band will not be well received in England. After the band's disastrous meeting with the Beatles, Kaylan has a life-changing dinner with guitarist Jimi Hendrix, whose band, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, is about to make their American debut, and Kaylan finds that Hendrix shares Kaylan's fears about his American debut.

Entertaining, well directed, natural acting, genuine moments

I just saw the film at a film festival in Hollywood. I thought THE TURTLES made a great subject, the time period and other musicians of the era were well represented. The budget is low, but the director (Bill Fishman) did a great job incorporating stock footage, animation, and a limited production schedule. Overall, if you like the song HAPPY TOGETHER, you will be entertained learning more about this group.

Also, Justin Henry, the child actor from Kramer vs. Kramer, turns out a great believable performance. Watch it.
