One of the very first made-for-TV movies is still the best one ever made.
4 October 1999 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent and entertaining example of a simple story woven into a colorful and complex plotline. This story structure and the directorial style that reveals it was cutting-edge in 1967, hasn't been bettered (though there have been many attempts to do so) in the next thirty years, and has finally arced to its ultimate successor in last year's (and still playing) Run, Lola, Run.

HOW I SPENT MY SUMMER VACATION hasn't been available on TV for many years and it's not been released on video and I sorely miss it. >
