      Jay M Classic 80s teen movie of the 60s! Foul language, toplessness, and light sex talk. Practically a PG-13 movie today! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/01/23 Full Review Steve D Sophomoric and never funny. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/14/23 Full Review Audience Member I am not one to sit and be a captive audience, but this movie is one I will watch each Halloween, or just randomly. Nice cars and music, and a look at the times they are a changing. Enjoy! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Absolutely love it. Brings back great memories Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the best CAR MOVIES of the 60's. A 17%. Kidding me. This movie is great. So many actors just starting out. Michelle Pfeiffer Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Underrated RAUNCHY VERSION OF AMERICAN GRAFFITI, BUT FUNNIER.

      Michael Blowen Boston Globe The film derives more from American Graffiti than More American Graffiti did. But it's an unfocused copy without one original moment. Apr 28, 2018 Full Review Gary Arnold Washington Post Far from showing continued promise, Mutrux has now identified himself as a kind of untutored, remedical-school imitator of George Lucas. Dec 18, 2015 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...a distressingly lackluster bit of nostalgia-based filmmaking... Rated: 2/4 Jul 6, 2020 Full Review Michael Dequina TheMovieReport.com One horrendous film--a shapeless, formless mess with little story and even less sense. Rated: 0/4 Dec 21, 2004 Full Review Philip Martin Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Rated: 2/5 Jul 29, 2002 Full Review Scott Weinberg eFilmCritic.com Rated: 4/5 Jul 25, 2002 Full Review Read all reviews
