I watched THE YOUNG GRADUATES as part of BCI Eclipse' Drive-in Cult Classics (featuring Crown International Pictures releases) on DVD.

This movie features Patricia Wymer, who I liked in THE BABYSITTER. Like that film, this feature packs a lot into a short time. However, unlike that movie, this one really has no story. Yes, you have hippies, rock music, bikers, sexual impropriety, attempted rape; and, a road-trip. But to what end?

The acting is flat – except for Bruno Kirby who is one of my all-time favorite actors! This was his first; and, I really think he deserved better during his career.

The musical score is inane and silly. Especially when the girls are in the gas station bathroom; and, another couple is desperate to use the loo. And, after the girls wash the truck; and, "burn rubbeer" leaving. Both scenes made me groan.

In any case, Robert Anderson, who directed and produced this movie, did just as bad a job on this one as he did on CINDY AND DONNA. I saw that film as well; but have not yet reviewed it…

If you like 70s cinema, race car or motorcycle driving scenes, psychedelic era, youth or teen culture, then try THE BABYSITTER or "WEEKEND WITH THE BABYSITTER.
