Storyline

In the final few days of Pop's Paradise - a hamburger joint that's been a second home to Westwood High's senior class - and a group of friends must face the biggest decisions of their lives. There's Stick, a surfer headed for Vietnam, Pirate, who wants to discover America along Route 66, and Michael, whose political activism may destroy his Harvard-bound future. Little do any of them realize that their final carefree days will also mark the end of their - and all of America's - innocence. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Filmed in 1990, but wasn't released until four years later due to Orion Pictures' bankruptcy. See more »

Goofs

The film is set in 1965, so it's unlikely Pirate would have heard Tim Hardin's "A Reason to Believe" which wasn't released until 1966. See more »

A picture of what happened, is happening, or will happen in our lives...
26 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

Although it might not seem, it's a picture of what happens, at least once, in our lives... As the countdown begins for the demolition of Pop's Paradise, great friends get closer and closer to separation, as they will start heading for their own lives, following their "objectives", their dreams, after finishing high school. It all happens in the mid 60s, among social and political tension, which characterized the problems in the U.S.A. during those times. Full of spirit, it will show you courage, friend and leadership, and make you feel somehow nostalgic. The soundtrack couldn't be better, as it gathers some of the greatest hits of that decade, like The Drifters or Beach Boys.
