The movie is adept at portraying aimlessness, getting at the greasy anomie that was so much a part of that time. But there is a lack of ambition, as if no one involved in creating the film wanted to cut deeper than a little double-edged nostalgia.
Not too much finesse distinguishes the script, which carries neither warmth nor particular interest for the various characters.
A small masterpiece that places the mood and general ethos of the '50s with absolute precision and total affection.
Like first love, this study of the growing pains of the leather jacket-bobby soxer Brooklyn high school set of 1957 is, by turns, cheerful, confused, juvenile and never fully realized.
Harmless coming-of-age-teen gang pic.
The film is a character piece that wanders from place to place with no single impetus, although one gets the feeling that this technique is intentional.
Affectionately done and thankfully short, since it's episodic.
When I first read about this film I was expecting a kind of gang causing trouble learning from mistakes film, But what we got was Grease without the songs and the cheese, There's no real plot it's just about four best friends and their love lives, Pretty well acted by all the cast but nothing memorable.
I have never heard of this film before, came across it whilst reading about Sly Stallone on IMDb and with a cast including Henry Winkler, Perry King (Han Solo auditioner for 1977 classic) and Amand Assante I knew I had to watch. In all honesty I didn't see much in the film that was entertaining or exciting, there is allot of dialog and emotion on show as a group of tough young guys in a Brooklyn gang live their lives over the course of afew weeks (I think).
Nothing much really happens accept for much smooching with girls in their parents houses and a marriage at the finale, if you think of the film classic 'Diner' then your on the right track but 'Diner' is much more interesting than this, only watch if your curious to see a very young Stallone and pre-Fonz Winkler (yes this role did lead to the Fonz obviously) which is an intriguing lure.
Not bad tale of 1950s Brooklyn 'gang' of four cool, young rebels.
Hey guys, your misogyny is showing.
