Wow, this movie blows, and blows hard

The producers must have thought, "Hey, it's the 20th anniversary of Woodstock! As long as it has a 60s soundtrack, we can just put three good-looking stars in any old piece of sh!t and people will go see it!"

This movie is just one sixties' cliche after another: Vietnam and the draft, sex and nudists, drugs and hippies, parental alienation and painted VW vans, soldier deaths and protest marches. There's no there there in this movie - there's nothing deep or thought-provoking. It's just one stupid scene after another, completely telegraphed. And that triumphant music at the end of that march? Holy sh!t. What an incredible piece of garbage.

I want the doctor to take your picture so I can look at you from inside as well.
