About the Movie

Romance and rock-n-roll come together in this '60s confection, as a rocker on his way down and a singer/dancer on the way up fall in love. Time capsule musical performances are provided by Glen Campbell, The Leaves (of "Hey Joe" fame) and the Bantams (an elementary school-aged supergroup).

Customer Reviews

Peppy, fun, catchy music numbers. Don't over-analyze, just enjoy!

Greatly enjoyable rental, there are terrific musical numbers in "The Cool Ones" that will haunt you for a few days. The dancing and choreography are very 60's, the acting is hammy and charming, Nita Talbot as Dee Dee is (as usual) sly and funny. The leads, Debbie Watson and Gil Peterson lack chemistry perhaps due to their ages (17 and 30 if I figure it right). Peterson looks great (the Ken Doll model comments aren't inaccurate) and can deliver a song really well. Watson makes up for a lack of pipes with youthful energy and is genuinely cute. Throughout the film are camp, unexpected, tacky, stylish, exuberant touches (bands made up of children, automated flocked office furniture, custom airplanes, some great outfits). The story is rather silly with a forgettable stock car scene thrown in near the end, and a ludicrous ending that would have been better covered with another great song. In all, a great treat for people who love movies from the 60's and don't mind a tissue-thin storyline.
