It's 1971 at the University of Texas, Austin. College buddies, facing graduation, marriage, and the draft, skip out of their own graduation party and head to the Mexican border for some adventure, a buried secret, and one last go-around at "the privileges of youth".Written by

Love it - Even tho it's hard to say exactly WHY...
It might be the fantastic soundtrack, the great shots, the skydiving scene, the wedding scene that makes me cry, the use of 'Can't Find My Way Home" by Blind Faith (one of my favorite songs) -- but this film is in my top 5 of all time.
Occasionally you have to suspend your disbelief to the point of it being painful, but the honesty, the great acting, and the unpretentious feeling of the film and the actors completely draws me in every time.
Go rent or buy it. Now. If you ever wanted to throw away all of the pressures and responsibilities of life, only to find yourself choosing to go back to them, you'll love this movie.
