Lame hot rod flick with okay Jack Nicholson bit as rotten teen punk.
Jack Nicholson has done better and most likely not done worse.
He's a punky teen hot-rodder exhibiting all the characteristics of a 1959-1960 juvenile delinquent. He's sore at his best buddy for hooking up with a girl who's not into the beatnik punk-kid scene and not eager to let her new guy stay this course to disaster. Best buddy is waffling between going straight and staying with the witless crowd. Nicholson exhibits a weird sort of subconsciously gay relationship with best buddy by trying to place a wedge between the gal and the pal.
Ending is totally out of context with the morals of this leader of the pack, but necessary for the film to have sociological value. Lots of fun to watch just for the wild slang.
