As long as one doesn't demand too much of it, Corvette Summer delivers a very pleasant two hours of escape.
One of Hollywood's better 'growing up' movies.
Miss Potts may well be a gifted comedienne, but Mr. Robbins never lets her relax enough for the talent to show. Too often, he strains his actors' enthusiasm to the breaking point.
All in all a very funny movie with enough solid, believable story to take it beyond the realm of teenage summer fare.
Works best as a distant memory; trust me on this.
I really enjoyed this movie, mostly because it stars two of my favourite actors, but it is also a fun comedy adventure about Hamil's character trying to get his car back.
This lighter than helium comedy was Mark Hamill's follow up to Star Wars. A high school grease monkey rebuilds, and tricks out, an old heap of a Corvette Stingray. While showing it off around town with his auto shop classmates, the car is stolen. Hamill goes in search of it, with the help of on-the-go call girl Annie Potts, eventually tracking the car to Las Vegas. That's about all the story there is. It's an utterly forgettable movie, but it's also a good natured romp that showcases Hamill when his career still lay in front of him. He and Potts have a believable chemistry, and they both make for likeable characters that are easy to root for. Released only about 6 months after Star Wars, Hamill still had the boyish zeal working for him that served him well in creating Luke Skywalker. Movies don't get much more lightweight than this, and I remember as a kid, only wanting to watch it because it had Luke Skywalker. But it still holds a certain level of charm, is firmly stuck in the 70's, and makes for a nice little 90 minute nostalgia trip, back to a time when I demanded much less from movies. Good performances, easy laughs, and even a couple of really good car chases. Hey...other actors have fared much worse in follow ups to their breakthrough movies.
