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).

This movie starts out like some light hearted goof. I thought it was going to be like caddyshack or meatballs or something. Then about half way through, I'm getting into it. It feels like a bunch of people I know, and its almost like hanging out with them.
As the movie winds down toward the end of summer, you can feel it like a kid who just wants 20 more minutes before he has to go to bed. The drama starts to creep into the comedy and you never see it coming. Finally, you get blindsided and before you know it, you're moved almost to tears.
Someone said it felt more like 75 than 79. I agree. It actually felt older than that, except for the cars.
