Great scenery ,corny but fun plot

Have always loved this movie despite its silly plot. Great location shot on Walkikie beach. Notice how nice people dressed for dinner and airplane rides then, and the modest bathing suits. Two hunky guys .James Darren and Michael Callan.
Gidgets boyfriend arrives in Hawaii unexpectedly just in time to see her kissing Michael Callan. He then takes up with Abby Stewart, lovely girl Gidget met on the plane. But all the guys flock around Gidget, so jealous Abby concocts a rumor that Gidget went all the way with hometown boyfriend Jeff.
shocking back in the pre feminist day when nice girls didn't!
comedic mix up when the parents innocently switch partners for a drink at the bar leading gidget to suspect..... laughs for all!!

Awful movie
Verified purchase
I wanted to see a movie from an earlier time in the 1960s when things were simpler. I wish I hadn’t seen this one. It was empty. The entire plot was implausible, somewhat mean spirited and not cute. A total waste of my time.
