Review by Warren Wolfe (posted on 24-Jul-2009)

A wonderful comedy. If you are okay with poking fun of Marin County, California in the 1970s, this movie will please you. The humor is good-natured, rather than mean, but rather devastating nonetheless. The film follows the exploits of a normal man stuck in a small, reasonably insane society. With only a couple of exceptions, the characters are fully caught up in the inanity of the seventies (only slightly) post-hippy society. There is a superb cast, and the entire cast turns in a set of stellar performances. I highly recommend this film to anyone needing a laugh.
