Synopsis

Amazon.com
This is the film that begs the existential question "Why?" on so many levels it could drive the most sublime Buddhist nuts. How bad is this nit-wit teen surf romp? Jazz singer Diane Shuur, whose unfortunate nickname happens to be "Deedles," sued the film's distributor, claiming it made her look bad! The soundtrack is indeed better than the film, leaning on heavy doses of late '90s ska revivalism for its charms. "Hawaii Five-O" with a blue beat? You betcha! And one more question, Grasshopper: Is the tail (the soundtrack) now wagging the dog (this big, bad bow-wow of a movie)? --Jerry McCulley

An admirable effort birthed from a pathetic film

(4 out of 5 stars)

"For a movie that should never have existed, this collection of music is very impressive. The individual bands and artists fit well together in a mix heavy on the Ska. If nothing else, this album could be used for one just beginning in Ska and wanting to hear a good sampling of the bands. The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Save Ferris, Radish, Hepcat and others, all much more dignified than the movie, are here and are worthy listening to."
