Theater Thursday


It's that time! It's Theater Thursday! This week we're taking a look at one of my personal favorites: Gidget Goes Hawaiian. 
Gidget Goes Hawaiian (the sequel to Gidget) came out in 1961 and followed the adventures of Gidget as she goes on a family vacation to Hawaii. 
Gidget (Deborah Walley) planned on spending the last 2 weeks of summer with her boyfriend Jeff aka Moondoggie (James Darren). However, her parents decided to surprise her with a trip to Hawaii. Gidget becomes so upset she storms off to tell Jeff the bad news. To her surprise he thinks it's a great idea. This upsets her to the point that she breaks up with him and heads to Hawaii.
Once in Hawaii, Gidget becomes miserable, thinking about all the great times her and Jeff shared. Her father (Carl Reiner) decides to surprise her by inviting Jeff to come out to the island. Unbeknownst to Gidget. In the meantime she vows to attempt having a good time and beings hanging out with other guys and gals whom she met on the plane. 

When Jeff shows up at an awkward moment, everything becomes fair in the game of love. If you've never seen this movie, I highly suggest you watch it. It's fun, it's cute and it's just a great movie. Fair warning though, there is a few musical numbers! 

Now here's the fun part! Do you have a movie you love and want to share it with others? Well now you can do that here! The only rule....do not feature any movies that are currently in the theater! So go ahead...and add a link to a post featuring one of your favorite films.

I knew Gidget was my soul mate when she decided she could learn to surf by reading about it.
