Comments on Jan Smithers and Breaking Away
4 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yesterday I saw this film for the fist time. Two things immediately struck me. Was this a warm-up for Dennis Quaid's role in Breaking Away? Almost the same character, same time frame, competitive aura; the similarities were striking. Also who did not have a crush on Jan Smithers? She looked so amazingly wholesome yet knowing at the same time. In fact I thought her relationship with her brother bordered on creepy from the outside but if you were the brother maybe, OK. Do not miss the Joanna Cassidy role. The woman every high-school guy dreamed of. the whole movie combined elements of early TV shows with frequently used movie cliché. The run up the fire outlook has been done so many times before and yet Sylvester Stallone could not keep it out of Rocky 1. Not a bad movie even enjoyable. Share it with people in their 50's, the conventions used are so familiar they are enjoyable.
