One of my favorite movies
5 March 2006 | by seadaveSee all my reviews

I first saw this movie on a winter Saturday afternoon around March of 1979 when I was 14 years old during the time when they used to air those 1960s Frankie& Annette beach movies but I liked this movie and didn't think it was flaky and phony as the other 1960s beach movies were I could at least identify with these girls or knew someone like them in this early 1970s movie unlike the 1960s beach movies which were played by adults well into adulthood.

I remember it being about 2 girls who were skipping school, running away from home or something and smoking dope(maybe not)and running away from bikers and there were sex themes which I couldn't understand. One actress reminded me of Joyce Dewitt from Three's Company which was a popular show at the time

I thought this was a really cool movie even though it was about a different generation which even during the late 1970s we were told had so much fun back then.I even remember the girls riding somewhere and some music & singing going "doot doot doot da do, bah bah bump dada datta do" and the girls seemed all high & hazy from pot-smoking but maybe that was just my perception of them at the time. It's a good reminder of a time when that type of life could be experimented with with few repercussions like drug violence.

I thought this was a cool movie but never saw it out on VHS when all the retro movies were being put on that format in the mid 1980s when everyone was buying their VCRs. This was available on some internet movie website long before Netflicks.

This is a perfect movie for a channel THIS TV. I like early 70s movies made for teens and young adults even though it is a decade before my time. I never forgot about this movie I enjoyed it so much now if we could just know what happened to the actresses in this film and who sang the motorcycle ride music.
