When insecure teenager Alex persuades his buddies James and Eric to go on a road trip through the Southwest for the summer, he doesn't tell them he's not planning to return. Along the way, they meet two girls who join them. It's beyond me why this movie isn't better regarded, let alone hasn't been released to any home format legally that is. Produced by Hugh Hefner's Playboy Productions--which, much as you might object to its trademark "bunny" objectifying of women--it takes the theses of Desmond Morris' pop-anthropology book and translates them into a series of pro-sex, but more importantly pro-tenderness and pro-humanism sketches.
So why the different reactions? Listen, Sheryl. You know how in some cultures men can show their uncovered mugs in public but women have to wear a bag over their heads? Same idea.

The aquatic ape hypothesis AAH , also referred to as aquatic ape theory AAT or the waterside hypothesis of human evolution , postulates that the ancestors of modern humans took a divergent evolutionary pathway from the other great apes by becoming adapted to a more aquatic habitat. The hypothesis was initially proposed by the marine biologist Alister Hardy in , who argued that a branch of apes was forced by competition over terrestrial habitats to hunt for food such as shellfish on the sea shore and sea bed, leading to adaptations that explained distinctive characteristics of modern humans such as functional hairlessness and bipedalism. The hypothesis is highly controversial, and has been criticized as pseudoscience. As he did not believe human beings were apes , he believed this might have been during the Cretaceous , contrary to what is possible given the geologic and evolutionary biology evidence available at the time.
