Goofs

When Frank gives in and decides to take Breezy to the Pacific Ocean so she can see it for the first time, it is early morning. Upon arrival at the ocean the sun is clearly behind the ocean casting shadows into the beach not away from it, thus in reality the scene was shot at sunset not sunrise. See more »

User Reviews

Contemporary love story...
10 November 2000 | by teacher694See all my reviews

Why do I love love stories so much? This movie is embedded in my brain from back in the 70's when I was young and in love myself. I wish I could see this film again because of the angel, Kay Lenz. Now, I'm the divorced, middle-aged man like in the story. When will my Kay Lenz appear to me?
