GOOD TIMES starring SONNY AND CHER and GEORGE SANDERS

A nice, unexpected heat wave bonus in the shape of a colorful, sprightly bit of good-humored silliness called GOOD TIMES, debuted in the midst of the Summer of Love, 1967.
This is a film custom built for Sonny and Cher, the pop-rock couple who were on top of the world at the time with their smash hit records. It doesn't take itself seriously at all, which is a very good thing. William Friedkin, its director, (pre-EXORCIST or FRENCH CONNECTION) has woven a splashy spool of pop art in itself, fooling around with brilliant colors and what seem to be experiments in reversing the negative.
Sonny and Cher appear as themselves in this story of how they were approached to make a film and some of the roles they might have played had they made one, which in the movie, they didn't. They are a charming couple, he Prince Valiant-haired and comic in a way that recalls a touch of Harpo Marx and the Three Stooges. She, long-haired and attractive and robustly voiced, fine for the songs, which are bright and brassy. She essentially plays straight man to Sonny, slipping in a zinger now and then, presaging their TV series. George Sanders, as various villains throughout the film, exudes his patented oily charm.
There are lovely little bits of fun sprinkled throughout the reels, a ridiculous Western number, a hilarious Tarzan take-off and a Mickey Spillane spoof, all of them evidence that Sonny and Cher did not have to rely on music for a living.
GOOD TIMES is part tongue-in-cheek, part beguiling foot-in-mouth. It's a tasty tidbit of entertainment for a sticky summer afternoon, and pointed the pair in the direction of television, where their Seventies variety show became another smash. A wonderful Sixties time capsule.
