Goofs

Boom mics are visible in two scenes. First, when William Tepper / "Mike" is walking with a friend on a sidewalk and descends some stairs on a hillside. Second, when Tepper is in Karen Black / Olive's home, the low ceiling in the living room forces the boom mic into view. See more »

Crazy Credits

Disappointing, considering those involved.
3 May 2011 | by See all my reviews

Poorly developed and fragmented movie about a confused college basketball player with a host of predictably militant and/or cynically unhappy acquaintances characteristic of 1960s academia where the film is set. I'm not sure whether we are supposed to like or even care about the characters or not, but in any event I didn't feel much of either for any of them. Jack Nicholson directed this movie with a taste for profanity and nudity. I guess he thought he was being provocative and progressively mirroring the changing cultural mores of the time. He would have fared better by putting his energy into developing characterization and refining the script that he co-wrote instead. All in all a disappointing movie which left me with a feeling of indifference about it.
