I am so excited I am going to write this review from memory. This is one of my all time favorite movies and I have been waiting for it to come out on DVD.

I was starting to make my own conspiracy theories that Kevin Costner had bought the rights and didn't want it released just so we couldn't be reminded of how he looked with hair. But suddenly it is out. I have to get it ordered ASAP.

So the movie is a classic coming of age - road trip movie. Four (or is it 5) graduating college seniors take one last trip to relive the glories of their college days. There is added importance to the trip as the movie is set in 1971 and the Groovers as they call themselves may be heading off to Vietnam.

The movies funniest scene has to do with a sky diving school. Many people don't realizes this is the basis of the movie. It was first a short film about the sky diving school. Steven Spielberg saw it and helped bring it to the big screen. I wish the DVD would include the short film but I am afraid that is too much to ask for.

This movie also features some great Pat Matheny music which really makes the ending touching in a 5 minute stretch with almost no dialog that says so much.

Check this one out, you won't be disappointed.
