....you Can't Have Everything
11 May 2002 | by richardrooSee all my reviews

Now it's a long time since I was a virgin, but those painful memories still remain.

Saw this film in the UK once only, when I was a 16-year old virgin in 1970. Knew the theme of the film - hoped it might give me some tips to lose mine....

Went with a 'worldy-wise' mate of mine.......

A painful story of adolescent youth looking for that special something....and he found it - true love.

I'd love to see it again, but not with my wife or two children present. Don't want 'em to realise what a real sentimental sod I am !

Regards to all film fans.

See it if you can !
