Movie Info

Sam Elliot stars as Rick Carlson, a thirty year old lifeguard who thinks life is passing him by. Rick loves the beach life and his job, but after attending his fifteen-year high school reunion and receiving advice from his family and friends that he's wasting his life, Rick begins to question his livelihood and wonders whether he should quit and find a more normal line of work -- such as selling cars for the local Porsche dealership.

Lifeguard belongs to that elect, if scarcely elite, class of film fondly designated "the nice little movie."

Lifeguard is worthy of a weekend rental -- but only if you're actually old enough to look back on 1976 and chuckle knowingly.
