Movie Info

A group of students hang out around a club at the beach, encouraging the comedic routines of their friend and getting rather rowdy. When the owner decides to close down the place on account of the noise, the youths work themselves into a tizzie. Fortunately for them, they find a tasty morsel of the owner's past and use it against him so they may continue their customary activities at the club. Amidst the main plot revolves a love story between a wealthy young man and his impoverished girlfriend, the amorous pursuits of healthy young students and plenty of beach frolicking. James Darren, Pamela Tiffin and Woody Woodbury star with help from such well-known names as Nancy Sinatra and Bob Denver.

Critic Reviews for For Those Who Think Young

All Critics (1)

Isn't a complete drag, it's just uninspired, struggling to work up the energy normally associated with this type of entertainment, presenting itself as a teen distraction that's more interested in making their parents laugh.

Audience Reviews for For Those Who Think Young


It's a beach party movie with James Darren and Pamela Tiffin standing in for Frankie and Annette! Mindless ridiculousness plays best if you watch with tongue firmly in cheek. Fun more for catching glimpses of stars on their way up like Ellen Burstyn, billed here as Ellen McRae and wearing an absolutely hideous blonde wig, or old time stars like George Raft who appears in a cameo than any real worth as a cinematic enterprise. You get Gilligan and Ginger too although they share no scenes together.
