This movie was off beat and had it's moments. Richard Chamberlain as always doesn't disappoint. I think the problem is the writer of this movie had too many messages that was being sent. From the message of big box stores, to hippies, to family dynamics, to love, to liberalism...it all kind of just jumbled together and was never really clarified. Despite all of that I still enjoyed it. It had moments of hilarity coupled with some moments of regrets on the part of the family dynamic.
