  Review by Suzanne  12/12/04

I watched this movie when it first came out years ago. I remember thinking that, while it didn't totally speak to my own high school experience, they did get the feel of high school kids in the 1970's down quite well. I had forgotten until that point how much everyone said "man", for instance.

I suppose this is more of a drama than a comedy, but it's not very's not too funny, so I wouldn't call it a comedy, either.  It just is.  The movie is about one group of kids on the last day of school in 1976.  The seniors have a tradition of humiliating or beating the incoming Freshman.  They didn't have this tradition at my school, thankfully.

The actors do a great job of being laid-back 70's high school students who are pondering what they think are the important questions of life and wondering what the heck they will do in the future, as they drink beer, smoke pot, and try to have sex.  It's got less plot and a lot fewer jokes than "Fast Times at Ridgemont High", but it's an interesting movie to watch nonetheless.

There are not many extras with the movie, which I found disappointing.
