Storyline

The well-meaning but hopelessly square merchants of a small southern town are fed up with the crowds of hippies lounging around on the sidewalks outside their businesses. One of the merchants, whose college-age son has hippie sympathies (and a hippie girlfriend) comes up with a novel solution: buy a ramshackle ghost town nearby, and deed it over to the hippies-if they'll only move there. Intrigued by the offer, and challenged to live out their ideals, the hippies relocate to their new Utopian commune, which they name Violets. Condemned buildings and tumble-down shacks don't discourage these long-haired homesteaders; they quickly set about repairing their homes and establishing an idealistic social order. The innocent entrepreneur horticulturalist nicknamed "You Know" (Micky Dolenz) plants his one baby marijuana plant and puts up a tiny picket fence around it. But pressures come from within and from without. Violets cannot sustain itself without doing business with the outside world, ... Written by Melanie Mitchell

Actually, pretty good
5 February 2011 | by See all my reviews

I am old enough to say I actually saw "Keep Off My Grass" when it came out in very limited release. Albeit somewhat "B" list, I found it culturally relevant, and Micky Dolenz's performance completely heart-rendering.

Dolenz said that his best performances were in "Head" and this movie. You need to open your mind to what it meant to be trapped in the early 70s drug culture. This movie exhibits all of it.

Perhaps he did not have a good publicist to help promote the movie's true meaning and its relevant Hollywood milestone within movie culture to ensure this movie's success. If you can find it now on DVD, video or download, buy it.
