Una aventura llamada Menudo is a 1982 film featuring teen boy band Menudo and Puerto Rican actress Gladys Rodríguez. The film's soundtrack received a nomination for a Grammy Award for Best Latin Pop Album.


In Una aventura llamada Menudo, Menudo members are supposed to fly to Ponce, Puerto Rico for a concert. However, having before arrived at concert sites by way of airplane, helicopter, and fire truck, and deciding during a meeting that arriving by motorcycle would be too dangerous due to wild crowds, band member Ricky Meléndez then hires the services of a hot air balloon company, and during their balloon flight to the concert site, they have trouble and crash land on a beach near a mansion.

Rodríguez's character, a big fan of Menudo who feels old and put aside by her young, hip nieces, lives in that mansion, along with her girls.

Looking for help, the Menudo guys arrive at the house, where they are given food and a room while they try to get in contact with their group director.

As the story develops, Menudo member Johnny Lozada falls in love with one of the girl residents, and Menudo members meet new friends, sing and dance their way through the story.
