Francie "Gidget" Lawrence (Monie Ellis) forsakes bikinis and surfboards for a wedding gown and corsage. Her husband, of course, is her faithful beau Moondoggie (Michael Burns).

This is a made for television movie complete with blackouts where the commercials used to be. The lead actor, Michael Burns, is a former actor and a history professor, retired. The plot of this film is strictly sitcom fair. Gidget and Moondoggie rush to get married and to move to Florida where he ends up working for a control freak (Don Ameche) who segregates his employees according to their standing in his company. They move into a cookie cutter house that looks like everyone else’s, even the furniture is chosen for them, where they can shop, which parks they are allowed to frequent. They are not permitted to associate with people above or below them; it’s a structured society. Gidget takes exception to this restricted way of living and soon causes enough trouble to be considered a nuisance.

A bit on the sappy side of silly and dated, having been made in 1972. It was quaint even then, working too hard to be humorous. Of the lot, I did enjoy Paul Lynde as Louis B. Latimer, former child star. But that’s about it.

That movie is so hilarious! I love it! Never heard of Michael Burns and Monie Ellis who played a newlywed couple. But I do remember about Don Ameche. Don Ameche starred in Cocoon and Cocoon: The Return that I saw when I was in late teens. And Harry and the Hendersons, too. Gidget's life changed when she got married. She and Jeff were trying their new marriage life an adjustment. It's very difficult for them. She and neighbors can solve problems together. Gidget is very smart. She can do everything for them.

When I was a kid I watched this movie I really enjoyed it. I looked for it for many years until I found it, I have watched it over and over again. Is a silly love story but it is full of love and great intentions.

Gidget Is Disappointed
Verified purchase
This was a disappointment, especially if you have the novels! Save your money and go enjoy Gidget Grows UP! This movie does not follow any of the Gidget Series Books.

I've loved this movie ever since I first saw it in January 1972. It brings back a lot of memories for me. Thanks for putting it out on DVD. I would like to see Gidget Grows Up on DVD as well.
