Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

After Jack Nicholson wrote the pro-LSD movie The Trip, he appeared in this other druggie epic, set in San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury district where deaf girl Susan Strasberg searches for her freaked-out brother, Bruce Dern, who think's he's Jesus Christ. As a relic of the flower-power era, this takes some beating - and some watching, too - but Nicholson completists should get a buzz from seeing him as a rock musician and as the film's romantic lead. Also included are music from the Strawberry Alarm Clock, if that turns you on, and a 2001-style acid trip to nowhere.
