When Henry is in Grace's room, she puts an album on the turn table on track one, and it plays Crimson and Clover, by Tommy James and the Shondells. In the next cut, the turn table is behind Grace and isn't spinning and the needle is off the record, but the music is still playing. During that time, the lid to the player is up, but when Henry goes into the closet for 20 minutes to wait for Grace to return, the lid is shown down, and the album has somehow changed to a Velvet Underground album.

After I saw this film, it left me scratching my head for a few reasons. At first, I thought it was a movie about college, since all the actors were so old and just walked in and out of classrooms at their leisure, but then I was stunned that they were suppose to be high school age. They are all obviously in their twenties and looked ridiculous as teenagers...it's like casting white people to play blacks in a movie, just as out of place and ridiculous. Next, the movie plays on it's vagueness, we don't understand the motivations behind any of these characters and the dialogue comes off as contrived and phony. Finally, for a film that was supposed to be set in the seventies, it truly fails to capture any feel for that era, it seems more modern than anything in dialogue and appearance. Not a movie that you will hate, but bland and vague enough to leave an empty feeling in your gut after viewing.
