This is an excellent coming-of-age story for fathers and daughters who have not been overly sheltered to watch together. It can help to break the ice about a lot of topics in a fun way. It is fun for the kids to watch by themselves, and bears watching over and over again. There is something for everyone. It is well-paced, and rich in the soundtrack of the sixties, since Dad is a DJ. Wallace Shawn is priceless as the know-it-all Psychiatrist specializing in adolescents. Catherine Hicks' (Dad's girlfriend) is very effective (and very feminine) as she tansforms the ugly duckling fifteen year-old Ami Dolenz (yes, Mickey's daughter) into something her father will never recognize.
