Movie Info

Gidget (Cindy Carol) and her father Russ (Don Porter) travel to romantic Italy. Gidget and her steady boyfriend "Moondoggie" get involved in with other teens during their separation. The thin storyline enables a colorful, though predictable sight seeing tour of Rome in all its classic and romantic splendor. Cindy Carol is the third Gidget in as many films about the lovestruck teenage girl. What is it about the role of Gidget that has these women each bailing out after one film? Jeff (James Darren) warbles a song that is as forgettable as the feature film itself. Darren guts it out as Gidget's love interest in his third straight feature.more

Beautiful locations and Jessie Royce Landis is a treat.

Super Reviewer


The title of the movie describes most of the plot. Very much what you would expect, basically Gidget does teen stuff in Rome instead of the USA. A bit too silly, with over done subplots and the such.
