Cute, funny and bitter-sweet with an enduring message about life and love of all kinds: this film has it all. Casper Van Dien is thoroughly charming as "Bobby Moritz," the beleaguered romantic lead. He shows a wonderful sense of comic timing throughout the movie. Roger Daltrey is huggably adorable as the whiskey-voiced Nehemiah, the long-time pal and band-mate of 1960s rock star Jet James (Christopher Lloyd). Daltrey adds a great sense of humor to the film, a nice change from the far more serious roles he's taken on over the years. His character cements this wonderful ensemble cast and provides an anchor to link the dramatic and comedic plot lines, all of which is carried off without a hitch. The romantic entanglements are realistic yet mystical in nature, in keeping with the "Age Of Aquarius"-like feel which unites the main characters. Like the best of old Hollywood films, every single performance is important to the plot and all are well performed. It's a shame that Hollywood doesn't make more clever, romantic, multi- generational films of this kind. It's a pure joy!
