Goin' Coconuts (1978)

How bad is it? It's like an overlong episode of "The Donny and Marie" show.
Should you see it? (Hm. Tough call) Yes - the film's just weird enough to be interesting.

The only film starring Donny and Marie Osmond, this follows them on a trip to Hawaii. A priest gives Marie a necklace, which then bad guys try to recover. Then follows bad slapstick, terrible jokes with ham-handed delivery, endless bad songs by Nelson Riddle with abrupt cut-aways (the songs during the opening and closing credits are okay), offensive stereotyping, and a very slow chase scene. Heavyweight bad guy character actors Ted Cassidy and Harold Sakata make appearances.
