There Goes My Baby ★★½ 1992 (R)

Eight California high school grads confront their futures on two nights in ‘65 (as the Watts riots ignite). There are Vietnam protests, flower children, would-be rock stars, friendships, and romantic complications. Yes, it sounds a lot like “American Graffiti” but the cast are winning and there's a good deal of affection without sinking to mawkishness. 99m/C VHS, DVD .
