GREAT MOVIE
31 January 2002 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite movies of all time. I highly recommend it to anyone that likes teen movies, 70's driving scenes, psychedelic effects, rock bands with female singers, or just late 60's early 70's youth culture in general. There are some really great freedom feelings you get from this movie - like you can go out and do whatever you want - screw school, screw schedules, screw it all! Just do what you want! You can make it across the state with one nickel in your pocket and still be happy you did it!

The acting is just ok, but that doesn't take away from anything. You soon get into the characters anyway.

This movie has a good amount of driving scenes and 70's nature frolicking scenes along with some happy free-feelin' music. It also has a good amount of teen rebellion. It even has some sex, but it's innocent almost. There's a live band, a psychedelic high school dance, a dunebuggy, a racecar, a motorcycle, cool clothes and cool attitudes. You even have some teacher/student love going on.

If you like love, youth and freedom, then see this movie!!!
