Back then it was trendy to copy the Beatles, and the Monkees were specifically made to copy the Beatles. Since the Beatles also made films of course the Monkees also needed to try their hand at it.
I watched a little of this and it seems to try too hard and takes itself way too seriously. I mean, come on, it’s only the fucking Monkees for chissakes!
How bloody insincere and pretentious can you get?
Apparently THIS pretentious and insincere.
