Storyline

Buddy Elder is an aspiring Olympic high-diving hopeful who has a devastating secret: alcoholism. The social effects of peer pressure are explored as Buddy frequently enjoys long drinking binges with his friends, as are the consequences. His rationale: "All the kids do it." Eventually, Buddy seems to have learned his lesson when he gets a painful reminder that may put a permanent end to his Olympic dreams. Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

Good educational film (with Chachi)
12 November 2002 | by gottagetmacsSee all my reviews

Gets its point (don't drink and drive) across very well. Stars Scott Baio, Chachi of Happy Days fame, and is produced by Henry Winkler, also from Happy Days. Meaningful and well written.

3/5
