Trivia

At the time the movie came out, Pepsi Cola's slogan was "Now It's Pepsi for Those Who Think Young". This wasn't a coincidence as Pepsi had a presence in the film. There are scenes of people ordering and drinking Pepsi, as well as a Pepsi machine in the club. See more »

Sure good to think back
30 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I read a few of the other comments. So critical! I loved the movie. Just to see Tina, Bob, James, Nancy and Paul in their prime. The movie was meant for fun...not a literary study for correctness. True the jokes were corny...but hey...anything that attempts to make us laugh and be clean at the same time is so rare today. The movies today have more violence more cursing more junk...I tell ya i sure miss the days of jerry lewis and dean and Abbott and Costello...Ernest P Worrell...Movies like these are treasures. I remember sitting with my mom as a kid and watching James Darren. It wasn't the movie, it was the man...and the cast...Or where are the Red Skeltons of today? Remember the times when entertainers ended with and "May God Bless" and meant it. Roy Rogers ended his TV show with "May the Good Lord Take a Likin to ya" I see movies to day that are really funny and have so much profanity in them, when the movie would had been funny without them. I sure miss movies like "For those who think Young". I miss the musicals. James Darren singing...Elvis singing, Dean Martin singing, Ricky Nelson singing, Frank, Bing, and beach movies with Gary Lewis, Jan and Dean...Frankie and Annette...and the movies left a song you could hum, sing a long and feel good about yourself...the romance...made you think of good things and good hopes for the future. I am in my 40's and hardly ever go to movies anymore. Maybe one a year. Sure there are the DVD's but there are not the entertainers that just make you want to go see them, as it used to be...Where are the John Waynes? Where are the movies that made feel good about being an American? So in conclusion...this movie may not be a critics love-lore but it sure is better than most of the crap on screen today.
