At one point the narrator in talking about the Watts Riot speaks of the assassination of President Kennedy happening the year before. The Watts riots happened in August 1965 and the JFK assassination happened in November 1963, which would place it almost two years earlier, not one as stated. See more »
The only saving grace is the great soundtrack. It's a lot of fun, even if some of the songs were not released in the 1965 framework of the movie. George Lucas should have sued these guys for ripping off "American Graffiti". The move even has a third-rate DJ sitting in for Wolfman Jack. Fortunately, after spending $10M to film it, the movie grossed less than $200K. Hopefully, the director and producer never got involved in the film industry again. Many of the cast have had long and distinguished careers on TV and in movies. This early attempt has them over-acting and chewing scenery. Lots of yelling and screaming filling in for real emotions. Fortunately, this stinker of a movie did not affect their careers.
