A bizzare mix of 1960's underwater super optimisic technology fascination ( like Voyage to the bottom of the sea, or Flipper) teen-pop-rock 60's beach blanket film, throw in some 60's sitcom stars and a few cinema biggies add in script seemingly taken from an Archie's comic book or typical 50-60's Disney film and you get this little Comedy of Errors. Janet Leigh is the dutiful 1960's Mom (laundry, cooking, cocktails & night gowns), Tony Randall her visionary aquatic engineer husband, the 2 wanna-be rockstar kids, Roddy McDowall ( is there a 60's major comedy he's not in?) as thier hippie boy wonder record producer. McDowall talks in a hippies slang so bewildering it rivals the Jive Slang guys from the Airplane! movies. There's a really funny culture moment as Jim Backus (Gilligan's Island) who plays Randall's boss and represnts "the esablishment" gets into word play with McDowall and calls him a "communist." This cracked me up as McDowall's character was more capialistic then Backus's. It's a small moment but that's what I sometimes look at when I watch film from different eras. Rounding the cast is a young Richard Dreyfuss(Jaws) playing the band leader and being so well dubbed when singing it reminds you of a Britney Spears concert. This film is actually the first time he fights a shark, clubbing one over the head with a guitar when the sharks attack the undersea home.
