dialogue and music are not at all as annoying as would be expected
31 March 2010 | by christopher-underwoodSee all my reviews

Surprisingly good although it is not quite what it thinks it is. Esme Johns plays the leading lady in this and does it very well, amazing that it seems she was never heard of again. She plays a pretty young girl from some provincial town in search of fun but mostly 'love'. I don't think many groupies were searching for much other than a quick f*** with someone famous and then onto another. However, grubby it might seem, the concept was one of at least mutual benefit. Both the male stars and the groupies got what they thought they wanted. Here we are to feel sorry for the fact that the girl gets passed around. That aside, however, the dialogue and music are not at all as annoying as would be expected and a really decent British youth film of the 70s ensues. It also has to be said that although there are protracted motorway sequences, we also get a great little cat fight, plenty of nudity and some crazy costumerie. Good fun, period piece.
