TOMMY'S ANNUAL PICK 5 HORRIFIC SUMMER TYPE FLICKS! SAM ELLIOTT BREAKOUT HORROR "LIFEGUARD"

Ah yes, good ole Lifeguard - I was 13 when this came out and cut school on a Wed in Flushing Meadows NY cause that's when movies came out back in those days, on Wed. A decent drama and generally considered a chick flick, it deserves a little better than that and to me plays like a really good TV movie. Kathleen Quinlan was 21 when they shot this, playing a 17 yr old and it's one of her most admired performances. She plays the lovesick high schooler with perfect honesty and openness and carries a lot of this film although casting is spot-on through out. Regardless of what you think of Sam Elliot, it's hard to take your eyes off him, that charismatic charm, he owns the picture. Pinewoods Rating System - Three Pinewoods....The Horror!!

But in the 1976 quiet character study Lifeguard, set during the summer of his 15-year class reunion, he finally wrestles to answer the perennial questions: What do you want?
