Maybe it's because I absolute love the 60's and 70's and anything to do with mod's, but this movie I enjoyed thoroughly. It's a brilliant interpretation of the constant war between mods and rockers, the urge to follow crowds to feel 'a part of it', and of course, trusting the correct people! I know I'm not the only one who felt particularly sorry for Monkey (the girl who obviously fancies Jimmy, but he doesn't even realize it) Jimmy is left alone by the end of the movie, which especially left me feeling connected and understanding towards him, but (though he doesn't realize it) he deserved it, as he did the same to Monkey as Steph did to him! This movie also demonstrates how following crowds develops hate towards different people, for no reason. Jimmy bumps into his old friend who he's not seen in years, and realizes he's now a rocker; this means that, as much as he doesn't like the thought, their friendship is over. So multiple meanings are hidden in this film, which is another reason why I loved it so much!
Jimmy is also very very attractive, so that's an immediate plus;-)
