Movie Info

Shortly after their TV show closed its final curtain, the Monkees took to the big screen in this mind-bending experiment in pop art. Proudly without plot, this feature follows band members Peter Tork, Davy Jones, Micky Dolenz and Michael Nesmith on a trippy adventure through 1960s Hollywood, Calif., where they cross paths with such people as Dennis Hopper, Frank Zappa and Jack Nicholson. In a variety of vignettes and musical performances, the daffy antics of the band are on full display.

    The Monkees weren't much more than a quartet of goofball musicians and singers, but that kind of low stakes energy is what makes the stream of consciousness, dreamlike narrative enormously fun.

    i think it probably helps to be high during this but it is a fun ride

    I'm not sure how to describe or review this film. Head seems to be a drug-fueled polittically-charged media satire. It's at times funny, random and abstract, and it's quite impressive on a technical level. Not everyone will enjoy this.

    The Monkees go psychedelic. Trying to destroy their bubblegum image, the Monkees, director Bob Rafelson, and screenwriter Jack Nicholson created a stream of conscious film making fun of their own image, commenting on the turmoil of the late sixties, and generally going for something closer to goofy art film than goofy TV show. Don't look for any story here, just a series of vignettes. It mostly works, moves along at a nice pace, features some great songs, and some interesting cameos, including a blink-and-you'll-miss-it Dennis Hopper dressed as his character from Easy Rider, which was shooting at the time.
