Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): John Buckner tells Huey that his mother spun silk on a wooden loom. A loom is for weaving yarn not spinning it. She could have "woven" silk on a wooden loom. Silk is spun on a spindle or a spinning wheel. Both a spindle and a spinning wheel can be made of wood.See more »

A Fun Period Or The Beginning Of The End?, 14 March 2007
Author: ccthemovieman-1 from United States

For the most part, this is an enjoyable "flashback" for most folks, a look back at the wild and crazy late 1960s. I would have enjoyed it more without all the blasphemous exclamations out of Keifer Sutherland's mouth.

For those who loved the '60s and its hippie-far Left political and cultural stances, this will be a nostalgic remembrance of those days. For those who think that period was the beginning of the end, morally and culturally for the U.S., this film will demonstrate that, too.

Regardless of where one is politically, the film moves very fast, is very entertaining, and has almost no credibility. In parts, it's just embarrassing it is so ludicrous.

Dennis Hopper is very believable as the ex-"hippie" and Carol Kane is a hoot as the "flower child." The rest of the cast, led by Sutherland, is nothing but irritating.

Also, the soundtrack of '60s songs is excellent.
