Not for nothing has this been called the happiest film ever made. It's also, after Harold and Maude, the film to make the best use of pop music. The leads, Mark Lester and Tracy Hyde, are delightful to watch, and Mark Lester is reunited with Jack Wild, his co-star in Oliver!

There has been a lot of poppy love stories and movies throughout my movie watching years that I seen. Some I have forgotten because they weren't really worth remembering. Some have had a slight impact on me. But one movie stands out throughout all those years "Melody". "Melody" is a kind of movie that you have to be a young kid to have an impact on you when you watch it for the first time. I was twelve when I saw this movie for the first time and to be honest I lived it for a while. I watched it many times after I was older and twice in last couple of years. When you are a kid and you watch this movie you don't care about how poor the acting was or how ordinary the story was. Those things don't matter when you are just beginning to find out about "love" and "kissing" and etc. What matters is you become the hero you want him to succeed in becoming one with the girl of his dreams.

Yes Mark Lester is cute and Jack Wild is wild and you want to be either of them when you are a preteen or a teenager watching this movie. The thing is when you are young and you watch it for the first time it stays with you and later in your older days you can enjoy it again because it brings back good memories.

In my opinion if you are going to watch this movie first put on your "adolescent" eyeglasses then watch it. You will enjoy it. After all we all have been young and naive once long time ago just like the heroes in this movie.

Fantastic cast and a pleasant soundtrack. Yet, a masterpiece requires a good story. Alas, that wasn't provided.
