Julius Vrooder returns from the Vietnam War, pretending to be crazy to cope with the world which lands him in a VA hospital. He locates a tunnel where he creates a bunker existence complete with electricity while also falling in love with his doctor.
You either loved it or hated it, I loved it. I have angered a number of friends with the car lighter bit. It was quite fun and I have been looking for a copy for years. The idea of having a Viet Nam style hooch on an on ramp to the freeway was wild. The experience of dealing with parents and siblings that didn't have a clue what you had just gone through hit close to home. I came back and went to visit my best friend, he took one look at me and asked "how many babies did you kill?" So the movie takes a sometimes dark look at what the experience was like, gives it a twist of warped humor. And besides, back then Barbara Hershey was real easy to look at!
