Avoid this film at all costs!
I watched this film recently - oh what a disaster! What the point of this is I have no idea. The first part of the film concentrates on the the band Billy Beethoven where as the second part concentrates on their girlfriends who are not allowed to travel to Spain with them.
The start of the film has two songs, one played by Billy Beethoven themselves who have Graham Bonnet on vocals and lead guitar (later the singer with Rainbow, MSG and Alcatrazz) shortly followed by the 1970s 50s tribute band Showaddywaddy. A painfully slow start leads to the band returning to inform their girlfriends that they cannot come with them on the Spanish tour. Quite obviously Graham Bonnet was not deemed good enough to have a speaking part in this film as he says nothing for the whole duration of the film! Bonnet looks nothing like he did in Rainbow in this film!
The inclusion of the final 30 second sequence which features the girls silently arguing with a dustman (a non-speaking role from Edward Woodward, the only part of the film to feature him) is a total mystery. This has nothing to do with rest of the poor story then the credits role!
The only good thing about this film was Arthur Mullard and his wife! If you haven't seen it, don't worry, you have not missed much!
