It's interesting in how very dated it has become, but all of that interest is extra-textual.
A sincere and perceptive coming-of-age teen film.
Look her, she's Sandra Dee! Innocent enough '50s romantic comedy doings.
the clueless parents provide that Golden Age anchor to the piece that rings disquieting in the face of all the real wolves their Gidget is facing alone in the pathless wood.
A must-see artifact and lots of fun.
A very innocent and cute film. I'm not a surfer nor do I want to be so theirs not much I can say about this one. Except for how good it was in every aspect of film making. The writing was okay. Their was nothing special or something that would stick in your head. The story itself is a good one. It's mostly about acceptance and coming of age. So if your a young girl that likes to surf, watch this. It would probably be one of your favorites. The directing was not special. It was okay, it did a good job on capturing the visual beauty of the ocean but that's about it. The acting was decent. Once again, nothing too special but it's not like the acting had you crying. Their was a real cuteness to the acting style present in this film. The production values have to be the best part. Very well put together. Overall, this film is visually beautiful with a cuteness atmosphere. You could literally catch some waves on it. I would recommend this film to people that like stunning classics.
This movie was the beginning of the surfing movie trend of the 60s, I think, and a classic teen film. It's not a great movie, but I liked it anyway.
a real bit of you-had-to-have-been-there americana...the earnest yet perky late sandra dee (doris day, only younger), old school hunky-w/o-the-steroids james darren, and cliff robertson as the big kahuna (yep, this is where that expression enters the american lexicon, baby!), together again for the first time in the 1960's first coming of age beach story starring and starting america's dream infatuation with the girl/midget
Good ol' fashion presque-60s superfun. You have to love Sandra Dee, she's the absolute ultimate. It's not an amazing movie but it's a classic. Apparently it's the film the kick started the surf movie craze. What's the best part in the film is twice when James Darren, or "Moondoggie", busts into the Gidget theme song, which is just the misogynist cherry stuck on the top of the 'traditional values' sunday of this movie. "She may not be king sized but her finger still ring sized/ Gidget is the one for me."
