Goofs

Keith gives Natalie an American-made 4-barrel carburetor to rebuild. Later we see it being install on the engine of Keith's 1962 Chevrolet C-10 pickup truck. However, the accompanying overhaul instruction sheet is clearly shown to be for a single barrel Solex PICT-3 carburetor. The sheet even says it is for a 1968-72 Type 1 or a 1968-71 Type 2. These are, respectively, a Volkswagen Beetle or Karmann Ghia, and a Volkswagen Microbus. See more »

Simple, but genius
12 September 2008 | by weetoo-tooSee all my reviews

This is one of those films that you really enjoy watching and when you see those running letters at the end you just want to lay back and clap your hands. Even when you're alone at home, seriously. Genius lies in simplicity, because on one hand, you can say, that you've seen so many films with partly similar scenario, but on the other this one looks totally different. It has something that keeps you interested. For example the old good school look. I mean, every time when I hear that the movie is based on school life it seems to be kind of lame. Not with this piece of art. First of all, script is good. Very good. As I said, it is simple, but on the same time very catchy. The movie is slow, but everything that happens means something, so it isn't boring at all. Secondly, both leading roles are perfectly acted. Finally, the views are very pretty.It is surprising how the suburb can be so beautiful and warm and that you really would like to be somewhere in the film. Anyway, picture is a must see I think.
