| For a late 70's movie, better than expected.
Having read the other comments here *prior to* watching this movie, I didn't go in expecting much. Yeah, there's no deep plot here... just a simple one about loony circumstances leading to a friendship and a love based not on pure nothingness (as in many movies) but upon that friendship and sticking up for one another. A simple movie just about that simple concept... with a lot of car chase scenes thrown in.

I didn't realize Denise Nickerson as Violet Beauregarde, but her acting really stood out for me as quite genuine in this movie -- I think it held up against modern day standards for this type of spunky character... and I'm someone who thinks that most 70's movie acting bites a big one. That, and she reminded me of an ex girlfriend almost to a tee, personality-wise. McGavin played very naturally as well... the two obviously had fun working together and stood way above the rest of the cast -- which WAS typically 70's in their performances.

I like this movie.. and might keep it as a nostalgic link to simpler, far more naive, times.
