I agree with you 100% Teddy!!!
While we all know that CLAMBAKE (both the movie and soundtrack) were certainly not going to win any awards, it is just a good clean fun type of movie. Yes the script could have been better, and the some of the songs certainly could have been improved upon, but still...looking back on it now, CLAMBAKE certainly does not deserve all of the negative press that it has received over the years.
Just look at the positives...a quality co-starring cast with Shelley Fabares (my favorite Elvis leading lady), Bill Bixby and Will Hutchins (very funny!) and a soundtrack with a couple of great and (in my opinion) underrated ballads - YOU DON'T KNOW ME and THE GIRL I NEVER LOVED.
Just a good old fashioned musical...sometimes it's nice to just get lost for 90 minutes in one of these!!!
