Monkees at the Movies
Back Home Up Next


Frankie Catalina takes his position as a teen idol for granted, not caring who gets hurt as long as he gets his way. He pushes everybody around, especially the extras, and pitches a fit whenever anything goes wrong. After experiencing one of his temper tantrums when a volleyball match doesn’t go the way Frankie wants it to go, the Monkees take it upon themselves to humble the spoiled star and replace him with Davy, who doesn’t really want the position. However, the reluctant movie star also lets the attention go to his head, and the other guys must remind him of his roots before it goes too far and hurts all of them. Both Frankie and Davy learn the hard way that "Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall" (Proverbs 16:18).
