Rock’n August Picks Edition.
On the last day of summer vacation in 1962, friends Curt , Steve , Terry and John cruise the streets of small-town California while a mysterious disc jockey spins classic rock’n’roll tunes. It’s the last night before their grown-up lives begin, and Steve’s high-school sweetheart, a hot-to-trot blonde, a bratty adolescent and a disappearing angel in a Thunderbird provide all the excitement they can handle.
A spoof of and homage to 1950s teen rock melodramas. Cry Baby is a rebel with a gang of rough friends. Allison is the straight-laced girl who falls for him.
Allison: It’s really wild, but I’m-I’m afraid that I’m not gonna fit in here. You know, with your friends, and stuff.
Wade “Cry-Baby” Walker: You’re cool, Allison. You just look square. Underneath it all, I think you’re really hep.
