Movie Info

This highly anecdotal film centers upon Doc (Nick Nolte), a self-employed marine biologist who lives by the ocean and interacts with the neighborhood denizens, trying to conceal a troubled past. Across from Doc's digs stands the local bordello, the Bear Flag Restaurant. Across the entrance ambles Suzy (Debra Winger), a drifter who tries to become one of the girls and fails miserably. However, she does set her sights on Doc and acts accordingly.

    Not horrible, but avid John Steinbeck fans (like me) will be disappointed in the structure and lack of character depth.

    As a Steinbeck junkie, I had such high hopes for this film. I was sorely disappointed.
