Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 12/21/1984
"...Ebullient, unsentimental....By far the best -- and funniest -- work yet done by [Dillon, and by Marshall]..."
Variety - 11/28/1984
"...Refreshingly realistic and likeable....[The film] has a modesty and charm along the lines of DINER and BREAKING AWAY..."

Product Description:

Jeffrey Willis, an 18-year-old from a working class family, gets a job as a cabana boy at an exclusive Rockaway beach club in New York. There he experiences a new world of wealth, snobbery, and leisure.

Plot Synopsis:

A warm-hearted coming-of-age tale set in the early 1960s. Jeffrey Willis, a working-class kid from Brooklyn, gets a summer job at a glitzy Rockaway beach club. Dazzled by a fast-talking sports car salesman he meets at the club, the impressionable teenager is tempted to abandon the down-to-earth values of his family for the promise of easy money.
