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).

Dennis Christopher stars as a Chicago nerd who moves to coastal California and attempts to blend in with the surfer crowd. What he doesn't realize is that their lives aren't necessarily the ideal existence.
Not great, but compelling, satisfying, and enjoyable...but out of print and extremely tough to find.
**1/2 out of ****.
