other reviewers cover the basics. Two often overlooked points: In the surreal, primitive "HO DADDY" beach dance, Bob Denver's bearded, singing Topo Gigio face is rather obscene even by today's standards. It could not have been an accident. In Pamela Tiffin's big confrontation scene, she is shot from the only angle which reveals her bad teeth. Again, this could not have been an accident. She must have angered the production team, or must have previously insisted on NOT being shot from that angle. It could have been done just to get her angry for the scene; but for whatever reason it worked and she did get furious. Too bad she left for Europe shortly afterwards; she was gorgeous. The less said about Woody Woodbury the better. Even Paul Lynde and their very muted gay schtick couldn't liven things up. Bottom line: put your brain on cruise control, have a Tab and rum, and go to a bright and shiny place.
