  • Matt Dillon stars in this comedy about a young man's experiences leading up to, during, and after a particular Fourth of July. A disastrous first date and a "nauseating" potato sack race are among the events depicted.moreless

    I saw this back in the early 80s on PBS. I absolutely loved it. It has a strong coming-of-age theme and centers on a teenager (Matt Dillon) and his experiences around a particular Fourth of July. Mr. Dillon does an excellent job as the main character. The other actors do a fine job as well. There are moments of comedy and more serious moments as well. It is essentially a bit of Americana presented in a funny and poignant way. I have been looking for the DVD on the internet for years. If you run across this episode of American Playhouse, you will not be disappointed.moreless
