365 Movies: Gidget Goes Hawaiian Review

Gidget Goes Hawaiian stars James Darren, Michael Callan, Deborah Walley, and Carl Reiner in this 1961 film. After being surprised about her boyfriend's reaction about leaving to go to Hawaii, 'Gidget' Frances Lawrence(Walley) decides to dump her boyfriend and go off on her vacation. The only thing is, Gidget still loves Jeff 'Moondoggie' Matthews(Darren) and her heart isn't necessarily on the vacation until Abby Stewart(Vicki Trickett) another girl helps her, relax and have a good time. While on vacation, she meets a group of boys, who are all charmed by her ways. This was the first Gidget movie I watched and I absolutely loved it. It's a guilty pleasure film for me and I'm not ashamed to admit it. Hahahaha! I first saw this movie, when I was 15 years old and I'm going to be 21 in August, so I've been sticking with this movie for quite a while. When I was 15, I thought James Darren and Michael Callan were so adorable and I still think so.

So what is your guilty pleasure movie and are you the type that isn't afraid to admit, what the movie is?

Someone who has not only seen it (a rarity), but someone who loves it too (a far greater rarity! ;-D)!

I really need to see these movies!! As far as guilty pleasures, it depends on what it is. I have no problem to admitting that I like some things (like The Scarlet Pimpernel books/movies) but I sometimes tend not to admit to others (The Wizards of Waverly Place... hehe)
