In San Diego, twenty year old Anton Rozy, nicknamed Chubasco like his now deceased Portuguese fisherman father, is a restless young man who only hangs out on the beach with his girlfriend, Bunny Marino, in having no aim in life. He is often in trouble with the law, largely for vagrancy, but his hotheadedness also adds assault, often against police officers, on top of those vagrancy charges. Bunny and Chubasco's relationship places them at odds with her father, Sebastian Marino, a fishing boat operator who can only see in Chubasco trouble. That strained relationship for Bunny only increases when she continues to keep in contact with Chubasco behind her father's back. As Chubasco hits his third strike with his latest arrest, exasperated Judge North believes he has one last trick up his legal sleeve to provide Chubasco some real guidance: instead of jail, he will learn the trade of his father by working on a tuna clipper, the Edna Belle. While some of the older crew knew or knew of ... Written by Huggo

If you liked the James Dean movie `Rebel Without A Cause' you'll love this one.
12 January 2000 | by garsonSee all my reviews

This movie will bring you back to a time when you were young and your parents wanted no part of your special someone. Susan Strasberg and Christopher Jones were adorable together. (They were married at the time of filming). The movie will teach you about compassion (with the knowledge that we may be wrong about a person and that people do change). And yes, parents are sometimes wrong, according to this movie anyway. I also gained a lot of knowledge about fishing tuna; I didn't know spotting the tuna was the most crucial part in catching it. Let me also mention that my favorite scene was the part when Christopher Jones was with his grandmother. Mr. Jones' touching performance made it very realistic, he really makes you feel his passion, not just in this movie but in all his movies.
