As a film - nyeh. As an artifact - fascinating to watch.

I'd still like to see this and the two Herman's Hermits movies. Heck, and Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush, and It's Trad Dad and...it's kind of sad how few of these are readily available.

In the mid to late 70's those were pervasive on TV - they must've been way cheaper to run than the Beatles films. Catch Me If You Can was a favorite of my best friend - he couldn't get enough of it for some reason. Mop-tops and go-go boots, groovy, man. The era of the whole Swingin' 60s films phenomenon was replayed endlessly on TV a few years after it ended, and then suddenly, they just disappeared. There were some seriously bad pop groups from back then that cobbled together some abysmal cheap flicks. Blehhh.
