Audience Reviews for The Chicken Chronicles
This movie is a sort of pre-cursor to the 80s teen comedies, and it's a very fun and humorous movie. It's not great, but I enjoyed it.

It's about a virgin trying to lose it with one of the hottest girls in school. It's fairly tame compared to the films that followed; with minimal swearing and no nudity, but they aren't shy about the use of marijuana. You could probably call it one of the first pot comedies as well; it proceeded [i]Up In Smoke[/i] by a year. [/font] [font=Courier New][/font] [font=Courier New]The film is fairly funny, nothing gut busting; but of course I've seen most of these jokes a thousand times, it probably felt fresh at the time. Guttenberg does a good job carrying the film, he's in almost every scene. His buddy played by Branscombe Richmond, is good as his partner-in-crime. But Gino Baffo, who was only in three films in his career, steals the show as his wise-ass little brother. The film climaxes at the big end of the school year party, and Guttenberg of course ends up with the "plain looking" girl that he's been friends with throughout the film. [/font]
