Mounts a case as the real progenitor of the Frankie and Annette beach blanket bingo cycle.

Audience Reviews for Gidget Goes Hawaiian

Cute comedy with a better supporting cast than usually found in this kind of film. It's nice to see the parents not portrayed like total morons or stick figures.

Super Reviewer

A close second after the original film. I enjoyed the addition of Michael Callan to compete against the darling James Darren. Both men put in excellent performances. The only downside is Deborah Walley's acting. She's little more than an annoying, sulky teenager in the film.
