Sure, one can dissect this film the way a film-dissector dissects films. Throw those dissections away, though, and watch this film for the pure beauty of writing, acting, direction, score, cinematography, and genuine zaniness of ecclectica that ensues from the very opening scene til the last. I love this movie for everything that it offers and everything that a film-dissector says it could never offer. To me, it is a cult classic - it cannot be dissected like any other flick.
P.S. My favorite scene, other than all of them in general, is when Bernard sees Barbara Darling dance for the first time at the Go-Go club. It's as raw and real as life gets, or at least got at that time. Man alive, this movie gets 6 stars on a 5-star basis.

I think this movie is one of Coppola's best, since there is no confusing drama/mystery in it(The Conversation). The plot is that a man has just moved out of his home and is going out with a girl he knew in high school. However, he also falls for a go-go dancer at a club the two go to. The movie is slightly dated, but it makes up for it with charm, espiecially the music. The acting is superb, and it's just a funny movie. I believe Coppola made this for his thesis at UCLA, I'm not quite sure. It's still good, so check it out.

This was Francis Ford Coppola's thesis film at UCLA. It is a bit dated, but it also has a surreal quality to it that draws you in. By no means a masterpiece, it is still worth a look, and a must for Coppola fans.

Fabulous to see but WE WANT MORE Dec 25 2010
By Robert Triptow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
It is fabulous to finally see "You're a Big Boy Now" available in any format. This is a sweet, flawed, engaging, freshman effort by a master crafstman. More importantly, it is one of the very few films that truly captures the essence of what it was like to be young and awkward in the mid-1960s (or anytime). It's a time capsule of a movie. It was evocative and real to me when I was young, and it's just as evocative and real to me now.

My one and only complaint is that this long-awaited DVD-R release is insufficient and doesn't do the film justice. "You're a Big Boy Now" is a movie that cries out for restoration of sound and picture and would really benefit from audio commentary and other bonus features that help illustrate its timeliness and the times in which it was released. And while this DVD-R has the best quality picture I've seen since before the days of VHS, it's still substandard. For instance, a comparison with a grainy bootleg copy shows that the image, while widescreen, is cropped on all four sides to the point of obscuring even some of the titles. The sound is very spotty and goes from too quiet to too loud, and the musical score by John Sebastian of the Loving Spoonful is tinny and somewhat grating.

Please, Warner Bros., give "You're a Big Boy Now" a proper release and restoration. You'll find that there are more people waiting for it than you would think.

Excellent Job, Francis Cappolla July 6 2005
By Antonio Caban - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
I just want to say that "You're a Big Boy Now", is one of my all time favorite movies. Cheesy? Yes. Entertaining? Absolutely. I first watched it back in 1989 (I was 19 years old, Bernard's age) and in a way I related to Bernard. Growing up and moving into my own apartment and what not.

Bernard's mother (Geraldine Paige) reminds me so much of my mother. Over-nurturing, over protective and nosey (sorry Mom.)

The acting in this movie is absolutely wonderful. Even "Dog" (yes, that's the name of Bernard's

dog) did a good job in this film. This is a must see!

Why the wait ? April 19 2007
By Dean F. Glines - Published on Amazon.com
This film is long overdue for a DVD availability. To think that you can get "Full House" in boxed sets but not this little gem.

It's not a perfect film but it evokes the rhythm and atmosphere of the time. Forget Coppola, look at folks like Julie Harris, Rip Torn and Karen Black. Revel in the weirdness of sixties poetry, drama and interior decoration. Beyond all that, revel in the performance of Peter Kastner, at once likable and pathetic. He never seemed to garner the recognition he deserved; forever to wear the albatross of "The Ugliest Girl In Town" around his neck.

I just get a good feeling whenever I get the chance to see this movie or even think about it. Let me own it and relish each and every scene (and a commentary by Peter Kastner and others wouldn't hurt at this stage, either)

Coppola's University Thesis Film is Worth a Look Dec 18 1999
By B. Holen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
This was Francis Ford Coppola's thesis film at UCLA. It is a bit dated, but it also has a surreal quality to it that draws you in. By no means a masterpiece, it is still worth a look, and a must for Coppola fans.

Love - and Pretzels - Always Triumph. Sept. 5 2012
By John J. Pocsik - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
In 1966 Warner Bros. released YOU'RE A BIG BOY NOW,
directed by fledgling director Francis Ford Coppola.
(In fact this was his UCLA theatrical thesis which helped
him gain his Master of Fine Arts degree.)

Those were the good old days when you could walk into a theater
not knowing anything about what you were about to see.
I remember being bowled over by this quirky, delightful
"coming of age" tale, about a young man from a wealthy
restrictive New York family, cautiously attempting to
find his identity in the Big Apple.

He falls for a seductive, manipulative, manic-depressive
go-go
dancer (Elizabeth Hartman), but eventually finds true
love with sloe-eyed Karen Black (with whom at film's
end he dances through a pretzel factory while the Lovin'
Spoonful confirm he indeed is a big boy now).

This is a delightful gentle gem, populated by a core
of top actors: Rip Torn (philandering father), Geraldine
Paige (clutchsome mom), Julie Harris (repressed landlady
attacked by a rambling pet rooster), and Dolph Sweet
(who would later reappear as a slimy stage manager in Brian
de Palma's equally view-worthy PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE).

Again, this is a gentle comic odyssey which explores youthful
foibles, from self-delusion to love and life. Once viewed,
you'll smile every time you remember it.
