This musical comedy pokes fun at the music industry as it tells of the romantic travails of two popular singers thrust together by an ingenious promoter/matchmaker as a publicity stunt. The young male needs to revive his flagging career while the female singer is trying to get her big break; so both of them reluctantly go along with their manager's harebrained scheme. You can guess what happens next.

Mrs. Miller appears as 'Mrs.Miller', the wardrobe woman on the teen rock show 'Whiz Bang.' When vivacious teen sensation Hallie Rodgers (Debbie Watson) makes a break for fame, she gets encouragement from wardrobe woman Mrs. Miller (Mrs.Miller), who has had her own dreams of stardom for 30 years.

Mrs. Miller performs the song "It's Magic" before the grand finale of the film, when Hallie and pop comeback Cliff Donner (Gil Peterson), learn that love for each other is more groovy than stardom.

This exploitation film about the evils of marijuana finds art teacher Phil Blake (Fabian) discovering some of his students are smoking pot. Although he admits to the students he tried it himself in college he is dumber than a bag of hammers about student drug use. Phil has eyes for fellow teacher Ellie (Diane McBain) until he discovers she is the main dealer along with the star of the football team. Susan (Patty McCormick) is all grow up from her appearance in "Bad Seed" and Terri Garr makes a brief appearance as a student. The film is a feeble attempt to cash in on the sensationalism of marijuana use. Richard Gautier co-wrote this unintentionally laughable film along with Peter Marshall of "Hollywood Squares" television fame. Marshall and Gautier prove with this feature they are two of the biggest squares in Hollywood.

Chicago Sun Times copy editor Josie Gellar (25), who was desperate to graduate from perfectionist copy editor to reporter, gets her chance when the goody owner orders the editor to cover the high-school scene by undercover. Josie, who was a frustrated, ridiculed nerd, gets a popular make-over from her drop-out, naturally funny brother Rob Geller. Both siblings find love and joys of youth again. But in Josie's case, it's sensitive bachelor teacher Sam Coulson, who enjoys sophisticated conversation. As the publication deadline approaches, the price of blowing their cover seems ever more daunting, yet inevitable unless she sacrifices her career.
