This Movie Was A Trip!!
5 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Loved it! Loved it! Were some of the best movies made in the 1970's or what? The characters in this film were so real and foul-mouthed, it moved me. I was just a baby when this movie was made, but I could relate to the story. I caught the second half of this movie and could not move, it was so entertaining and well written. This is the type of movie our culture lacks today- Content. I have to have this movie in my DVD collection! I really would like to see more movies like this in theaters and on television. There was an underlying message amidst the great acting skills of the characters. My favorite characters were Norma and Billie Jean. I gotta see this movie again to catch the first half and get the overall message...
