FULL SYNOPSIS

powered by AFI

After leaping off San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge to escape from Mayor Feedback and his establishment cronies, the Monkees perform an underwater ballet. They attack a non-functioning Coca-Cola machine in the middle of a desert, pursue the Black Sheik and his Arab horsemen, and watch a World War II Italian regiment surrender to a single Allied soldier. The quartet then arrives at Columbia Pictures studios to appear in a filmed commercial, portraying dandruff in the hair of The Big Victor, a muscular movie idol of the 1940's. One of the Monkees, Davey, tries his luck in the boxing ring with a movie extra but takes a beating. Attempting to escape from the film lot, the boys wander into a Western setting, fake their way through a shoot-out, exchange insults with an overly-dramatic female impersonator, and conclude by tearing apart a studio set. As their adventures end, the Monkees are again seen free-falling from the Golden Gate Bridge. [Film contains clips from the following films: Gilda (1946), Golden Boy (1937), City of Conquest (1940); and footage of Vietnam War atrocities.]
