After way too long this comedy classic is finally available. Tony Randall has designed an underwater house. His boss can not see its advantages and wants to scrap the project but Randall convinces him to let his family test it for a month first. Two of Randall's kids are in a band so they invite the rest to join them. Meanwhile Tony's boss is financing a self-contained underwater dredge in the hopes of finding lots of gold.

The two projects clash. Randall's wife is afraid of water. The band gets a chance to be on TV but can't leave the house. On top of it all, the underwater rock music has convinced the Navy that there is Russian activity going on and the fleet mobilizes. But despite sharks, lawsuits, seals, and even a hurricane, everyone manages to keep their heads above water.

I always loved this movie as a kid and I bought it as soon as I saw it. Despite its age it has stood up well. The record company uses a computer to predict hits in ways marketing computers are currently used. A fine cast and some guest appearances certainly don't hurt. So if you want to see the original underwater beach movie, this is the one.

HELLO DOWN THERE is a very cute comedy from 1969, with top performances from Tony Randall and Janet Leigh, who must have had a ball working on this.

Fred Miller (Tony Randall) is a wacky inventor who builds a house under the ocean. His grumpy boss (Jim Backus) believes the entire project is a waste of company time and money, so Fred offers to have his family live in the house for 30 days. There are only three major obstacles: Fred's "aqua-phobe" wife Vivian (Janet Leigh); and his two teenaged musician kids (Kay Cole and Gary Tigerman), who are on the verge of signing with a major record label.

This film is a breezy joy from beginning to end. The house itself is very imaginative, and the underwater photography is amazing. HELLO DOWN THERE was filmed in Florida at the studios of Ivan Tors Productions (famous for "Flipper" and "Gentle Ben"), allowing for lots of authentic location filming.

The cast also includes Charlotte Rae, Roddy McDowall, Ken Berry, Lee Meredith (Ulla in the original "Producers"), Harvey Lembeck, and a teenaged Richard Dreyfuss.

Paramount's new DVD features a crisp anamorphic print which long-time fans will simply adore. (Single-sided, single-layer disc).

What a fun movie! The concept of living in an underwater house is enough for a story, not to mention adding the top comedy actors of the day and super groovy 60's music ( little goldfish is my favorite ). This movie is good clean fun for the whole family. With plenty of action and laughs for everyone. This long lost classic will charm even today..

Some of my fondest movie memories growing up are of this movie starring Tony Randall, Janet Leigh, and Richard Dreyfuss among others. You just can't beat the pure family fun and engaging songs from this film.

For years I have been contacting classic movie stations and video stores in hopes this would be released for a whole new generation to enjoy, but I thought it would never happen. When I recently found out it was really going to happen, I let out a scream of jubilation so loud it could have probably rivaled the biggest fans at the World Series or Super Bowl.

Glub Glub Glub - I have to go and watch it right now !!!

I have loved this movie since I saw it when I was a kid :) The songs in it are classic! "Glub!, Glub! Glub! I'm floatin' on a sea of love!"
"Hey little goldfish, where you goin' to? Pretty goldfish, let me swim along with you, hey little goldfish, we could have a whale of a time, mm mmm, put your fin in mine, mm mm" So cute! :D And Janet Leigh is so funny - who knew? :)

I was so excited when I accidentally came across this. Talk about going back down memory lane! I remember crushing on one of the band members....OMG! It was Richard Dreyfuss before he became famous! I thought he was sooo cute....lol. I think I was about 12 when this movie was released. I loved the silly song, too...Glub, Glub..Glub!

Alright, I admit, it's a silly movie about a family trying to live in a prototype home of the future under the sea. It's an idea to solve the overpopulated Earth and diminishing resources. The home is energy efficient and totally self sustained. It's ironic, now, how prophetic this movie was. Especially in the time period it was made. It's almost as if Walt Disney could see into the future and was thinking....."what if...." Of course, I wasn't thinking about those things....only how cute that guy in the band was...lol

Honestly, I don't think this was a hugely successful movie for a Disney movie. I think I was the only one of my group of friends who truly enjoyed this movie and the song. I vaguely recall my friends teasing me. I didn't care. I enjoyed it. So watch this movie and have fun seeing Janet Leigh as the mother and Tony Randall as the scientist father. It's such a typical sixties style movie with the typical band (dubbed music by a "real" band) and helpless pretty blonde, all wearing the mod clothes of the period. It's definitely a fun silly movie and you don't need to worry about paying too closely to the plot. Just enjoy! Maybe even laugh, as I did, at this so called typical family, clothes and music. I still like the song Glub Glub '
