Ok, so we used to rent "Bye Bye Birdie" from the library ALL the time. We thought it was really cool, and would act out scenes from the movie. I even remember making my Ken doll sing the song "Sincere" and dance around JUST like Conrad Birdie.
I watched this movie recently, and I just have two words to describe the experience.
I seriously lost brain cells watching it. The only redeeming qualities are the following lines of the movie:
"Randolph, your father's warned you. If you make another bomb, you'll get spanked."
"Don't try to pay me back, son. I forgive you. So what if you're an ingrate? So long as you're happy."
"Ed Sullivan? He's my favorite human."
