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.
