For Singles Only (1968)

How bad is it? One algorithm decided this is the worst film ever made (It isn't).
Should you see it? As a goofy time capsule of the 1960's, perhaps.

The cast of this film sets it apart: John Saxon, Mary Ann Mobley, Marty Ingels, Milton Berle and in a cameo, Angelique Pettyjohn! There's also a ton of music: The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, The Sunshine Company, The Lewis and Clarke Expedition, Cal Tjader, Tayla Ferro and the Wally Wanderley Trio (I didn't say it was great music). Two women move into an apartment complex where everyone must be unmarried and under 30... was that ever legal, anywhere? There's a bet about seducing a girl which the girl finds out about and she goes along with it to help out the guy, because the money would pay for his going to college. They get engaged, then evicted. There's a rape scene and a death, but then there's happy music.
