Just Fun too watch
18 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

Just take it as it is. Too many people are judgmental.I don't see why this movie did not rate higher. Not all bad came out of that period during the 70's. I expected it to end badly but it did have an upturn at the end. I thank the people who voted in more for its favor.

My only complaint was I could not understand the speech patterns of the kids.

I am going to try and find out more about it on the net to see more about the two fine boy actors.

It did have a few scenes that were out of place but I still rate it 10 in my book.
