During the water-ski scene, the Bruno Kirby character is filming Bob Crane's character. When they are watching the film in a later scene, it is simply the scene from the movie, complete with edits and slow motion effects instead of what the character would really have filmed. See more »

I really liked this movie!! And why not, it is a combination of Disney and Kurt Russell, pure magic if you ask me. This really was a great story though. It was a love story of teens going off to college, and not being able to be with each other. And with all the kids going off to college these days, and different ones at that, trying to have a long distance relationship is hard. This movie reminded me of the hardships people overcome to be with the one they love. And the father in this film, is very overwhelming of his daughter, who loves Russell's character, but wants her to marry a man that he likes. In the end, like all good love stories, it had a great ending, which I think everyone will be delighted with. The story was great, and the actors as younger "kids" were good too. Most notably the acting of Kurt Russell and Bruno Kirby (billed as B. Kirby Jr.). Overall, this film deserved a 10 out of 10.
