"...SERIAL is a wonderfully funny film that manages to satirize every '70s fad from hot tubs to religious cults with an almost undying and irresistible fervor..."
New York Times - 03/28/1980
In Marin County, a simple husband desperately tries to keep up with his family's obsession with the latest fads. Alternatively a funny parody or sad commentary about present trends toward "identity" and the "ultimate" lifestyle in modern America.
This film examines an ordinary man who tries to keep his family together -- and maintain his sanity -- amid several New Age groups, casual drug use, sexual politics, and the ever-changing vernacular. Harvey loves his middle-class life-style in Northern California. But everyone, including his wife, daughter and friends, has adopted one, some or all of the fads wreaking havoc on American popular culture. Will the buttoned-down guy stick to his guns or eat only vegetables, light a joint, hop into a hot tub, and otherwise agree not to "invade someone else's space"'
