Critic Reviews for Wild in the Streets
An engagingly oddball sports documentary that's as much about community as it is about competition.
Colorful residents, nifty archival footage and narration by actor Sean Bean, who grew up less than 30 miles from Ashbourne, help provide context for Baxter's energetic exploration of what may be the oldest ongoing sports rivalry on Earth.
Audience Reviews for Wild in the Streets
Hippie dippy ridiculousness is a true artifact of it's time. Preposterous concept of lowering the retirement age to 30 and impounding all the retirees in militant psychodelic camps is silly enough but throw in all the groovy 60's speak, far out outfits and Shelley Winters abandoning any pretext of modulating her performance and what you end up with is not the happening experience the producers were surely hoping for but a sloppy mess that if nothing else is good for a few laughs. Peace out baby!
WATCH THIS FUCKIN' MOVIE. Dated though it may be, this is none the less one of the best movies ever made about the social climate of the sixties, with a great cast, story, and message. No one is spared as both the hippy youth and the over thirty "squares" get gloriously hacked up by the meat cleaver that is good satire.
Wild is the key term here, the story is really out there, I mean a teenager is so popular he becomes like the president of the US by lowering the voting age and then the ending is so crazy, I loved it. This movie has a good cast too, look for Pryor in a small role. I really liked this movie, it's wild.
