An offbeat television pilot film, this entertaining tale with a charming family that takes to the road together to experience the land and its variety of people.

Jeff Bridges (of 1974's Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, a Clint Eastwood co-star), is very good in the lead role of the catalyst of the venture. He convinces his father and mother and even grandmother to accompany him on a trek around the country in a converted vintage bus.

While the production is good, it gets a bit too involved with fringe characters in a rock festival setting.

Still, marginally worth watching.

Director: Paul Bogart (American television and film director. He directed episodes of the television series Get Smart and All In The Family from 1976 to 1979. Among his films are Marlowe, Skin Game (both starring James Garner) and Class of '44.

In 1991, he was awarded the French Festival Internationelle Programmes Audiovisuelle at the Cannes Film Festival.)

Brings back some memories I'd like to forget - thank goodness this pilot never sold. BTW: Father is played by Carl Betz from the Donna Reed show, the quintessenal television actor with a range from A->B

Very laid back with no real disequillibriums to reflect the hippie nature of the charachters, some good acting and a great soundtrack this is a film for hippies.
