This is one of those movies that I watched on DVD, thought sucked, and just didn't feel any motivation to bother writing a review. Then some time later, I vaguely regretted that. Now I don't remember it clearly and don't care about it. But I still felt like I should mention it, here. I won't say much of anything about the plot, but hey, at least there are some links, so you can check out other sites, if you want.

So... the main reason I wanted to see this is Carrie Fisher, and also Warren Beatty. There were some other good actors in it, but they're the only ones I remember. It came out in 1975 (about six months before I was born, and a couple years before the original "Star Wars"). I watched it... probably in the late 90s or early 00s. I don't remember anything about the plot except that it was basically a sex comedy, which I didn't find at all amusing. And I don't think any of the plot made sense to me. Of course, I'm predisposed to dislike movies that are too much about sex, but I can overlook that if the story is good, or if it's funny enough, or whatever... but this movie, I just didn't like at all. Well, except perhaps Carrie's role. I don't really remember anything about her character, except I think the character may have been a few years younger than the actress (she was like 18 or 19 at the time, but I think her character was more like 14 or 15; I could be wrong). I have the vague sense that I found her to be the only character in the movie who displayed any real intelligence or humor, but like I said, I don't really remember. In any event, her role in the movie was very small. Not nearly enough to make it actually worth watching the movie, IMHO.
