Review by Gary (posted on 11-Oct-2005)

This movie is a "Must See." Without a doubt this movie brought back the fun and freedom of my youth in Pacific Palisades CA -- I lived during a beautiful time in this country, a time when we were responsible for our actions and our honor, a time when it was rare to see a police car, because we policed ourselves, a time when you could fall asleep on the beach without fear for your life, a time when you could have a hotdog and a bottle of orange crush at "Heavenly Dogs" for 50 cents. God I miss those days.
