Editorial Reviews

Hey, you! Wanna catch the L.A. garage band that first recorded the oft-covered rock essential "Hey Joe?" That would be the Leaves, seen here in a performance of "In the House of Dr. Stone." The Cool Ones has more cool musical stuff, too. Like Glen Campbell on his way to country/pop renown. Plus "This Town," the song composed by Lee Hazlewood (the film's music supervisor) that would become a Frank Sinatra staple. And the quirky song styling of mid-'60s camp sensation Mrs. Miller. The film's story spoofs the music industry as it unwinds its loopy tale of a rock kingmaker (Roddy McDowall) and the girl-boy singing duo he plans to rocket to the top of the charts by making them everyone's favorite romantic pair. Tammy TV and film star Debbie Watson plays the duo's starry-eyed ex-go-go dancer, and Gil Peterson portrays the handsome crooner whose career had been flatlining. Look for uncredited Teri Garr (Young Frankenstein).

4.0 out of 5 stars vintage sixties movie October 2, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
the cool ones is entertaining if you like 60's movies. it has an interesting cast including tv's "tammy" debbie watson, phil harris, the infamous "singer" mrs. miller, nita talbot, roddy mcdowall, and glen campbell. the movie music is by lee hazelwood and billy strange and it includes the song "this town" which frank sinatra covered and nancy presented in her special "movin' with nancy." the l.a. scenery is fun, too, since it visits olvera street. the movie pays a silly tribute to the classic teen music show "hullabaloo" with its "whizbam" spoof, and there are some obscure musical acts like the leaves that make appearances. the writers tried to scuff up the movie a little bit with some unnecessary profanity and the plot is wacky but the cool ones is still a hoot to watch if you symbolically still live in the sixties and intend to remain there forever! i recommend this release of the dvd, too because it played beautifully in my dvd player and sounded exceptionally clear as well.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's cool! January 13, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Roddy Mcdowall playing a guy with lots of issues is funny. Some of the songs are memorable. The leading man is a little stiff. But the plot is simple and its a fun return to the rock and roll of the 60s. If you don't think to hard its a nice film.

The "Cool Ones" is the answer to the long asked question "What would happen if I mixed elevator music with the social insight of "Dragnet". But before you think I am going to lay waste to this movie, I must admit that the Cool One's is one of my all time favorite bad movies that came out of the sixties. Not as wonderfully horrible as "The Oscar" nor is it the big budget bomb that is "Valley of the Dolls" - which killed Patty Duke's career - but pound for pound "The Cool Ones" best represents why the old establishment in Hollywood would fall while the "Graduate" would take America by storm. Better titled "The Way We Never Were", this movie represents the very stereotypes of the sixties generation which sadly exists today, So if looking for a mirror into the sixties - avoid at all cost and instead watch "The Graduate", "Easy Rider" or "Woodstock", but if you want a jaw dropping, laugh out loud flop - then man is this the grooviest scene you will ever dig.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mrs. Miller. Need I Say More? August 18, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
By no stretch of the imagination is this a good film. Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide assigns it the dreaded "BOMB" rating. Though I wouldn't go that far I can understand the rationale. Stars Debbie Watson and Gil Peterson are Barbie and Ken personified. This is not to say it's a particularly bad movie. As Sixties kitsch it works perfectly. If Watson and Peterson don't get the camp elements of the script Roddy McDowall as a neurotic record producer and Nita Talbot as his saucy assistant definitely do chewing the scenery with aplomb. Noteworthy are abbreviated appearances by Glen Campbell and the legendary garage band, the Leaves("Hey, Joe"). Also noteworthy is Teri Garr is in the film as a predominately unspeaking extra. The flick might have been better if Garr had Watson's role. I can't recommend this flick but those of a psychotronic bent might want to check it out.
