Storyline

In the final few days of Pop's Paradise - a hamburger joint that's been a second home to Westwood High's senior class - and a group of friends must face the biggest decisions of their lives. There's Stick, a surfer headed for Vietnam, Pirate, who wants to discover America along Route 66, and Michael, whose political activism may destroy his Harvard-bound future. Little do any of them realize that their final carefree days will also mark the end of their - and all of America's - innocence. Written by Anonymous

Cool Dude!
12 March 2000 | by (Outta this World) – See all my reviews

This movie rocks! I hear that most of the cast look back on this movie and say that they wish they hadn't made it, but I can't see why they would say that. This is a fine example of a movie about the "innocent" years of the sixties, full of emotion, and spirit. It's nearly impossible to find a copy of this, but if you can, it's definatley worth a rent. A remade American Graffiti.
