I could go on about this movie for decades. Truth is, it has good visual effects, awesome cinematography, and an okay score. Go to your nearest VIDEO STOP and order this. They're sure to have a 3 grosses of this classic movie. The thing I like most about Am I Normal?: A Film About Male Puberty (1979), is that it's not very original. But anyway, I know the main character is a bit rough around the edges, but who gives a cluck? He showed as quality acting as Tom Hanks when he was in that movie Splash. This movie is beyond genius and deserves some nominations. Everyone should have this in their classic movie collection. Get the soundtrack too. It's good.
