Goin' Coconuts is a 1978 American musical adventure comedy film directed by Howard Morris and starring Donny and Marie Osmond. The feature film was released in theaters by Columbia Pictures on October 17, 1978. It was both a critical and commercial failure. Shooting took place in Oahu, Hawaii from March 31 to May 1978.


While performing in concert with Donny in Hawaii, Marie acquires a lovely necklace, unaware that it's coveted by a group of thieves and by a mysterious woman. Plenty of trouble soon follows, with Donny and Marie getting into one jam after another.
