It's clear Coppola had storytelling talent to burn, and this whimsically sweet movie is certainly one of the best Manhattan time capsules from that era.
Francis Coppola has drawn topflight performances from his talented cast.
Coppola's style had healthy roots in the screwball comedies of the '30s, and the glorious performances litter the film with moments to treasure.
A magnetically exasperating comic strip of a movie.
Coppola has fun directing, and his film is filled with sight jokes, high-spirited performances and a lively sound track by the Lovin' Spoonful.
You're a Big Boy Now slides up and down the escalators of charm, wayward fancy, stabs at taking itself seriously, and exuberantly crisp and funny observation.
Significant as an early example of the developing talent of one of the most important (if not the most important) American directors of the 1970s.
What elevates Coppola's coming-of-age comedy above the routine is the great supporting cast, headed by Geraldine Page in an Oscar-nominated turn as the smothering mom, Julie Harris, Rip Torn and others.
Really nifty coming-of-age story from the young Coppola.
An uneven effort that has both its funny and dull moments, but has since remained popular as a cult favorite.
Coppola's spaced-out sex comedy is a cross between The Graduate and Funny Face, drunk on its own kooky excesses.
Francis Ford Coppola's introductory offering gives primarily a different take on the 1960's coming-of-age genre, different than say "The Graduate", although many of the same elements are present (part of my recent return to some of the films that formed my ideas about film). Novel editing, music that syncs with the story, quirky characters, all present. "This is the same guy who made "The Godfather", and "Apocalypse Now"," you will ask yourself while smiling throughout at this little gem. And one of the few times Karen Black played "the good girl" (nearly making it must see for that reason alone).
Dumb and dated
