If you do, you'll be in hog heaven as Hawn portrays a piece of beach trash who tries a little late to mend her ways. The relationship between her character and that of her son, who looks to be around 11 or 12 in the film, is one of the enduring accounts in the movies of a mother trying to stay too young and a boy overcome by urges he didn't know he had. The young actor who plays the boy, David Arnott, does a fine job maneuvering between trying to be just a kid and having to deal with unexpected adult complexities. He breaks your heart as he attempts valiantly to be the father to the eternally youthful and hedonistic character Goldie Hawn plays, she should be the mother but she doesn't know how to. And Arliss Howard is in the movie too, always underrated, with killer looks and a mean streak that gives him a bit of Warren Oates-like excitement. This movie tries to stretch Goldie Hawn's acting chops a bit but I think people will always prefer her in kind of ditsy comedy roles. This one hit too close to home for her many fans to enjoy it, and there aren't really enough boy-watchers out there to have made this a huge hit on account of the then-unknown David Arnott.

It's the kind of American movie that was being made in the age of the New American Cinema of the 1970s, a character-driven study of laziness, cruelty and unexpected courage, more akin perhaps to SUGARLAND EXPRESS or SHAMPOO than to any of Goldie's other films. She and Arnott should team up for another picture today, it could be a hit, if enough marketing muscle is leveraged to get those asses into the seats as they say.

This is a well-written story about ordinary, decent people, and a very well-acted "little" film that simply doesn't beat you over the head with how good it is. Watch it more than once. The characters, and the tough, real life financial and personal dilemmas and choices they struggle with, will hold your interest even after the movie is finished. To dub this a mere "coming of age" tale is to miss the point. As our country is once again peopled with those whose lives have been forever changed by the hard consequences of war and/or economic crisis, this movie is both timely and worth appreciating. I highly recommend this film.

Goldie Hawn plays a single mother who resorts to stripping to support her son, played by David Arnott. In fact, the movie centers on David and his coming-of-age. Nothing really new here, but the film has a good heart (which it wears on its sleeve often enough).
Certainly this is not a great movie, but the Key West locations are beautiful. It's summer all the time there, and you can practically feel that muggy heat coming through the screen. The film has a languid (okay, slow) pace, befitting its 'life is a beach' flavor. Goldie looks great and the performances are fine. It's just unfortunate that the trivial story fails to develop the dramatic tension required of a better film. So basically this will appeal to fans of Goldie Hawn, movies set on the Florida coast, and lovers of old Mopars (Goldie drives a really cool '59 DeSoto). Made me wish I grew up there. :>

This is a good coming of age movie. David Arnott did a great job portraying a kid trapped in a difficult living situation with a mom who's stripping for money and a dad who's divorced from his mom and living in a monestary after suffering post traumatic stress from the war in Nam. The movie did run slow and the ending was kind of abrupt. Overall, I'm glad I purchased the movie and I'll watch it again.

As an adolescent therapist, I've enjoyed watching films showing young males and females negotiating adolescence. With Goldie Hawn doing her usual good job, she added an extra positive performance. The young actor, David Arnott, is a bit wooden in his first movie role, and I don't think that he went on to an acting career. But his naive, good-intended efforts to help his mother financially are presented in a natural, fresh way. It's a good, simple family movie, especially, for those with young teens.

This was on random cable channel one afternoon; didn't mean to watch it but got sucked in. I loved it so much I bought the DVD! I don't usually do that but I really liked the story. The kid in that movie was terrific; I read about him and found he's never made another movie since which is sad.

I usually dont like older movies but saw this one on a cable channel on a rainy Sunday and liked it so much I bought the movie. This kid was so impressive but he never went on to make another movie. Goldie Hawn is great in this movie too.

I really liked the feel of this movie. Having been a teen in the mid 70's this movie had a very real feel for me. From what I understand this movie was meant to be a dramatic vehicle for Goldie Hawn, who at the time was best known as a comedic actress. While Goldie did a very good job the real standout in this movie was newcomer David Arnott who played Goldie's son Chris. He seemed to be a "natural" in front of the camera. While I would'nt describe him as a great actor, the role he played was so close to who he was it was a very convincing performance. How unfortunate that this was the only movie he ever made, he definetly had alot of potential.
