Storyline

It's the end of the 70s. Hippies are assimilating, women are raising their consciousness, and men are becoming confused and ineffectual. Don't expect to be able to keep track of all the names or who's sleeping with who; the picture very skillfully conveys the hopeless muddle through which the many characters move as they try to Find Themselves. Written by Molly Malloy <mailcall@kiva.net>

Needs to be DVD!
14 August 2002 | by (SE USA) – See all my reviews

This movie needs to be on DVD! It's a classic! Great sound track and it's a funny look at the Bay Area in the late 70's. The cast includes Tuesday Weld,Sally Kellerman,Bill Macy,Peter Bonerz and many other familiar faces. Martin Mull is awesome!
