Under-the-Radar Dirty-Old-Man Gem
28 February 2010 | by fredk_usSee all my reviews

My partner and I were watching this film on the Lifetime network and adding its memorable quotes to the empty section here at its IMDb page. We soon started giggling at the audacity in innocence. The film concerns a summer between the 17-year-old daughter of a late-40s drunkard Dad punctuated mostly by an overused Ad Asner as one of the colorful locals. Anyhow, the film totally reads as a very soft porn tape. The father has his girlfriend, and the daughter meets a neighbor boy, but the sexual lives of the two cannot but help to color their moments together: in his trailer, bobbing in the lake, up on a roof, etc. Kudos for the nerve of the writers. Aside from this campy subtext, the story is not at all dull. The guitar is clichéd, but the tale moves tenderly forward!
