Gidget's Driving Lessons
7 September 2017 | by JordanThomasHallSee all my reviews

Gidget (Sally Field) takes a job at Buds 'n Blooms flower shop that requires she drive a delivery truck. However, Gidget doesn't know how to drive, unknown to her boss Mr. Franklin Whiting (the always spot-on proper boss/authority character actor John McGiver). Gidget subcontracts her best friend Larue (Lynette Winter) to drive until she learns. Gidget's father (Don Porter) aborts a driving lesson after she about hits another vehicle. Now, she is forced to turn to her brother-in-law John (Peter Duel) to teach her. She accidentally hooks onto another vehicle (by somehow neither realizing the loud crunch as she backed up) and unknowingly pulls a little convertible with a dog inside. Gidget looks back to think a dog is driving the car. Now John abandons teaching her to drive. She goes to the beach and asks a friend named Eric (Douglas Lambert) to teach her, but he misunderstands her intentions. When Mr. Whiting's wife goes into labor, Gidget is put in charge of taking flowers to a wedding. Now she faces a conundrum.
