United Artists was reluctant to give first-time director Rob Cohen the privilege of directing this film because he was mostly known for producing. Rob Cohen pressed the already hard-pressed studio, the studio heads deliberated for six weeks and Rob Cohen was ultimately given the job. There was one condition: Cohen needed a back-up director in the event that he would be fired from directing. Arthur Hiller agreed to step up in the event that this happened. Luckily for Cohen, it never did happen. See more »
The characters entered Harvard in 1967 and presumably were to graduate in 1971, and it shows them as apparently the first class involved with the draft lottery, which affected only seniors. However, the first class involved with the lottery was actually that of 1970, and the movie accurately shows the first ball being pulled from the drum with a date of September 14 in the drawing held for the 1970 class.

A brilliantly realized movie, with a lovingly detailed script by Ezra Sacks, about three Boston college students and their changing relationships during the turbulent anti-Vietnam protests of the 1960's. Brad Davis as Leo, the wild man, Jameson Parker as Nick, his straight-arrow buddy and the lovely Karen Allen as the Radcliffe artist they both love. One of the few American movies that succeeds in handling a menage a trois without being tasteless. Both funny and heartbreaking, this is a lovingly realized tale about a tragic period in American history and the toll it took on the student population. Shamefully underrated at the time of its release, this is a superior movie, with quality contributions from all sides, that deserves a much greater recognition than it has received. First time director Rob Cohen does a terrific job, drawing from his own experiences at Harvard during this turbulent anti-war period. A haunting musical score from Jim Steinman that echoes with familiarity from his later works. Anyone purchasing the DVD should listen to Cohen's audio commentary to appreciate just how greatly he was involved in the creation of this movie and to understand the battles that the students of the 60's had to wage against an oppressive and unheeding government. Plaudits to everyone involved in this worthy endeavor. This is a history lesson every student of today should be obligated to watch.
