One of the greatest movies ever is out on DVD, "Serial" from 1980 with Martin Mull, Tuesday Weld, Bill Macy, Sally Kellerman, Peter Bonerz, Tommy Smothers, and Christopher Lee, among others. Here's the original VHS cover, click to enlarge:
Martin is a family guy named Harv in Marin County, California facing all of the trends of the 70s at once: a newly liberated wife, bratty kid, drugs, free love and macrobiotic lifestyles. All of his friends react in different ways, but Harv doesn't really freak out until his daughter is swept up by a religious cult.
That's about all the plot, but the characters are enough to keep anyone interested. Highly recommended, click the link below to buy at amazon.com.
