A pleasant trip, which was a pleasant surprise.
1 July 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I expected the usual sub-adolescent hi-jinks....anybody would, I guess, with that title.... and discovered instead a thoughtful little made-for-TV minor classic. I can recommend this heartily for its characterizations of a likeable and naive group of high school seniors, all together for the last time before setting out separately in the world, visiting New York all wide-eyed, and gaining insight into their soon-to-end adolescence and soon-to-commence responsibilities. Among the vignettes you'll see people you knew, or thought you did. And you might see yourself at that vulnerable age. An excellent study of a generation, and I highly recommend this generally-forgotten film which I never forgot.
