Quote:I think your analysis is spot on, even with your nostalgia. The sex scenes are more juvenile when you watch as an adult, but I'm sure this was the reason to see it back then. This surprised me a bit, as I was expecting a more "mature" movie. In this regard, I don't think the movie lived up to my expectations, but, if you look at it in a vacuum, it certainly has its charm.
Yeah, there could have been a romance and a sex scene but it's all very porn-ish, people who just met having sudden sex because that's how every adolescent boy wishes it would work.
This was very indicative of the time period. It wasn't really juvenile or porn-ish. It's what people were doing... all over the place.
Romance would have really ruined this movie.
