I used to watch this on television many times and hadn't seen it for a long time. I've been looking for it but it did not exist on DVD. I'm very glad 20th Century Fox made this available at last.

This film, "The Sweet Ride" from 1967, as written by Tom Mankiewicz based on a novel by William Murray and directed by Harvey Hart (who made the superior "Bus Riley's Back in Town" in 1965) asks you to think of the dirtiest possibilities in presenting its story content. That is not why I chose to watch this film and none of it was titillating to think about and like the film asks you to choose, I do not care about the negligence the film advocates, and therefore I give the film a low score. The cast is very good: Michael Sarrazin, Jacqueline Biset, even Tony Franciosa (well past the age to act this way) Bob Denver, Michael Wilding and Michelle Carey among others. Dusty Springfield sings the title song which I'd never heard before. Produced by Joe Pasternak, responsible for some of Elvis's leering comedies. Filmed in Panavision and Color by Deluxe, but this 20th Century Fox Cinema Archives edition is presented in pan & scan.

The Sweet Ride is sort of like a Frankie and Annette beach movie, if you sucked all the fun out and inserted needless drama into the proceedings. It's an overly long, overly dramatic, and overly tepid movie that reeks of 1960s stink. Sometimes that's a good thing (most early James Bond movies have this same issue, but not to their detriment), and sometimes it's not. Case in point is The Sweet Ride, a movie so boring I fell asleep twice while watching it.

I was monumentally bored by The Sweet Ride. It has many problems, not the least of which is that director Harvey Hart (Dark Intruder) makes the entire concoction feel like a chintzy low-budget drama that was churned out rather quickly. I didn't connect to any of the characters' plights (even poor beaten Vickie) and just had little interest in how the movie would finally resolve all the drama between the characters. The whole endeavor feels like a rather tepid made-for-TV movie that never goes anywhere, with a screenplay (by Diamonds are Forever writer Tom Mankiewicz adapting William Murray's novel) that is DOA. There's a rape by a motorcycle gang, a woman being beaten by a Hollywood producer, and surfing. If I made any of that sound interesting, it's really, really not. The movie seemingly goes on forever, running almost two hours, which ends up being two hours too much.

The acting is rather bland throughout. The three main leads—Michael Sarrazin, Bob Denver, and Tony Francoisa—all give only so-so performances. After having seen Paul Newman's Sometimes a Great Notion not too long ago, I can safely inform you that Sarrazin has done far better work than The Sweet Ride. Francisa just comes off as too smug and privileged, which may have been the point (but it makes his character nonetheless drastically unlikable).

First, I must say what I'm about to add to this movie review contain only through memories. I saw it when it first came out in 68. So what you'd be reading is that of 20 year old's perception: I liked it. It was a fun and sexy movie. If I could afford the DVD, I would give a more percise review, and maybe revise this review if necessary.
