Product Description:

Matt Dillon broke through as a heartthrob in this surprisingly affecting comedy, from director Garry Marshall. Dillon plays a Brooklyn kid who lands a summer job at a tony Long Island beach club in 1963. His good looks and obsequious manners win him favor among the snobby members, who trigger dreams that he might actually move up far enough in the world to be one of them--particularly his hero, the club gin champ (Richard Crenna). Meanwhile, his hard-working plumber father (Hector Elizondo) casts a jaundiced eye at all the easy moolah his son is raking in in tips and the lessons about easy living that he seems to be learning. Marshall captures a loose comic nostalgia and the sense of a teen who is suddenly discovering his own abilities--and seeing his parents for the first time, both for bad and for good. --Marshall Fine
