You're a Big Boy Now is a 1966 film with Peter Kastner, Geraldine Page, Julie Harris and Karen Black, written and directed by Francis Ford Coppola based on a novel by David Benedictus.

The story of a young man's troubled awakening to the big world is a peculiar one. But the film is an early example of the forthcoming counterculture sensibilities — not because of a focus on drugs or long hair, but because of the inclusion of the emerging music, the latest dance trends, and fresh social attitudes. As with "The Graduate", there is the sense of searching for "something new" other than the conventional, discouraging world of the socially secure adults.

The hit song by the same name, written and performed by the Lovin' Spoonful, was later included in an album a year later, after the movie had run its course in first-run theaters.

The movie also contained the Lovin' Spoonful instrumental "Amy's Theme", and the jazz bagpiper Rufus Harley plays a small role. The Spoonful released a soundtrack album.
