Storyline

Max Flatow is a precocious, social miscreant who has a way with home-made explosives. When he tires of these, he runs away from home only to emerge seven years later as Max Frost, the world's most popular entertainer. When Congressman John Fergus uses Frost as a political ploy to gain the youth vote in his run for the Senate, Frost wills himself into the system, gaining new rights for the young. Eventually, Frost runs for the presidency. Winning in a landslide, he issues his first presidential edict: All oldsters are required to live in "retirement homes" where they are forced to ingest LSD, taking the 60s catch phrase "Never trust anyone over 30" to its most extreme consequences.

youthful politics
12 May 2005 | by (Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico) – See all my reviews

A film with the juvenile concept of the young people taking over the country takes the idea to some amusing conclusions. The aging members of the U. S. Senate are trying to convene session while stoned on LSD, and the center of the film, Max Frost, who becomes a rock star and President, finally sees his chance to get even with his domineering mother played by Shelley Winters. While it doesn't do much in its stereotyped portrayal of the 60's counter-culture, going a mile wide of any attempt at nuance or depth, it has a lot of energy and creativity. Directed by Barry Shear, who in the early 70's made ACROSS 110TH STREET.
