Captures the essence of the late '70s.
11 March 2003 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

I remember this movie fondly from 1978, and watched it whenever it came on TV, usually late-night through the early '80s, then it disappeared. Fred McCarren plays a small town guy that moves to New York City, and stays with his swinging friend (Desi Araz Jr.) It's loosely based on the author of the paperback "How To Pick Up Girls", which was advertised in major magazines like Playboy & Penthouse in the late '70s & early '80s. It captures the singles scene in New York in true '70s New York style. There is also a scene where Donald (Fred McCarren) is partying with a model/girlfriend of his boss (Deborah Raffin) at Studio 54! I always liked this movie, but hadn't seen it since the early '80s. I was lucky & found a VHS tape of it on the internet. It's a movie that will have lots of appeal for lovers of '70s nostalgia.
