 and Cher in their first and only movie together. Playing themselves, the Got-Each-Others are approached by a movie studio to make a musical that will capitalize on their fame. George Sanders plays the villainous movie executive who tells them to be ready to shoot in eight days, but Sonny is not a fan of the script that Sanders has proposed and decides to try and come up with his own. Flying into his own imagination, he concocts a western, a detective story and an African jungle adventure, all of them featuring him as the bumbling hero and Cher as the stone faced female relief. This rambling, boring piece of crap is only heightened by the excellent songs and some glimpses at the psychedelic sixties; Cher fans will get very little from it, as she became a much better performer later on. Directed by William Friedkin from an almost non-existent screenplay by Nicholas Hyams, this is one for the memorabilia shelf.
