/ 10

Jack Nicholson's first venture into direction is very much a film of its time.

/ 10

Nicholson deftly illustrates the background cynicism of big time sports against the more obvious cynicism of college life.

/ 10

No way can it be said to work, despite the cast's cultish distinction, but it still knocks most of its quasi-radical contemporaries sideways as an index of doomed '60s/'70s causes and confusions.

/ 10

All of the film's characters, and all of the performances, are touched with the kind of unexpected sensibility and decency that are rare in most films of this genre.

/ 10

A disorganized but occasionally brilliant movie about two college students and the world they, and we, inhabit.
