Mike Batt's score is charming and whimsical while the comedy is down right silly and reminds us of the fun American International produced-Beach Party films
The funniest part of the film is the Japanese couple (played by real Japanese actors) with the husband being a head of a japanese car company, What makes them a riot is the Wife speaks traditional japanese while the hubby speaks Engrish
The main plot is a bit shaky given the actor who player Mr. Banks (who died after the film's release) played the same film structure as he did in Marry Poppins [the stuck up father who gave in to the whimsy out of the blue in the latter half of the film]
but overall, Given the film is typical B-movie cheese
You should at least enjoy the film for it's campiness as well as the brilliant music composed by Mike Batt
Bonnie Langford is such a cutie in this and it's quite cheesy!
Overall, good kids film, not such a great film for adults
