Well I decided to do the giddy up thing and take my four speed dual quad posi-traction 409 to the movies so now I am gonna lay my first ever movie review on you.
The local drive in was showing "Out of Sight," a total teeny bopper James Bond rip off meets surfer movie.
The bad guys are called F.L.U.S.H in it but there ain't a john big enough in the world for this turd.
I dig cheesy movies about chicks, surfing, hot rods, and so on but this baby really is at the bottom of the list.
It just ain't all dat funny or cap-ti-vatin.
It features a cartoon car from the era called the ZZR and it is supposed to be the spy car "star" but this thing is best forgotten.
Several musical acts are featured including Gary Lewis and the Playboys (who do all rite in it), Freddie and the Dreamers, The Turtles (who should have stayed named the Crossfires doing killer surf rock instead of becoming the sappy love fest band they later became), Dobie Gray, The Knickerbockers (not bad) and a killer appearance of the land locked surf instro greats The Astronauts (the best thing about this entire movie).
I spent more time hitting on the chicks at the snack bar than watching this thing and The Astronauts really are the best part.
I give this one 1 1/2 rats out of 5 and it is not really even worth talking about beyond that. This thing makes "Biker Boyz" look like that long hair Shakin' Spears work.
Check ya later kats!
