About

The first film to credit Nicholson as director combines his love of basketball with in vogue nihilistic angst. Tepper is the rebellious college student dealing with the trials and tribulations that girlfriends and coaches cause. Dern is terrific as the tough coach, but there is nothing else here that can be claimed as unqualified success. After Easy Rider and to a lesser extent Head, it is admirable that Nicholson was continuing to antagonize and provoke, to keep pushing the envelope.

In a nutshell

But ultimately, there's no theme here that isn't addressed more coherently and directly in a more conventional film like Five Easy Pieces.
