Trivia

Old video copies of this film omit the title song (as performed by America), which was heard in its entirety during the closing credits (the Burton Cummings tune is heard instead). All the other tracks remained intact. America's version of The Mamas and the Papas classic is available on their greatest hits CD, as it was issued as a single one month before the film's release, failing to make the top 40 (it peaked at 56).

Forgotten Cult Classic
29 December 2002 | by (California) – See all my reviews

"The 'Citizen Kane' of Beach Movies." Keith Kuramoto, Cinema Graduate, San Francisco State University

"This film was the template for all the teen-sex, coming-of-age, boys-and-boobs films of the 80's and 90's - From 'Porky's' to 'American Pie.'" Brian MacGregor, Cinema Graduate, San Francisco State University

This definitive Southern California sun-and-surf cult film is sacred in Japan!
