Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

Nothing in Woodstock or Bust seems original, absorbing, or worth the effort it surely took to make this movie. Almost Famous, for one example, was a more emotionally true depiction of teen life in that era. While DeLacy and Shields seem competent, neither have much to work with in a script largely devoid of character development. What seems utterly unbelievable is that neither girl expresses any concern about the fact that by not showing up at the Christian camp, they will surely worry their parents, who are expecting them to arrive there. The anxiety this creates hangs over the plot and remains oddly unaddressed.
