The Beatniks

The Beatniks ★½

People who are sayin these aren’t beatniks clearly have no idea what a beatnik is. Peter Breck (as Mooney) especially embodies the counterculture hep-speaking nihilistic veneer of the movement which began greaser and descended into the hippie.  
Of course Beatniks is meant as a scared straight du-jour so they’re more unhinged and can’t handle their friend going square, so it naturally erupts into a tense showdown because *finger wags* IT COULD HAPPEN TO YOU!
