Saw the original trailer for this movie in 2012/2013. The original trailer was titled Franny Lew The Boulevard. I was led to believe the movie would be based on that trailer. Unfortunately the movie is nothing like the original trailer. The accident which was caused by oil being thrown into the street was not even mentioned in the movie. Instead it is about a summer romance (fling) between a girl from Great Neck and a guy from Whitestone. Yes there are a few races, nothing to get excited about. American Graffiti had more racing and better cars (from that era). Considering this was based on the 80's and Franny Lew I honestly expected to see more races and more street cars. That was not the case. This movie was a disappointment to me. It appears the entire story line was changed for the big screen. Such a shame. **Scene that takes place at Whitestone Lanes (Unrealistic). F.Y.I. I was a teen in the 80's and lived/still live in the area this movie is based on. There was so much more that could have been added to this movie. Especially when it comes to the music and the cars. I hung out on Franny Lew as a teen. I saw first hand the cars that would show up to race. Can not express my disappointment enough.
