According to the Hollywood Reporter, Reitman, whose resume includes Ghostbusters, Stripes, Twins and Kindergarten Cop, has never directed a musical before.  He specifically chose Shawn as his star, perhaps because they're both Canadians, eh? Plot details are unclear, but the Hollywood Reporter says the movie's title is thought to be a reference to 1967, the so-called Summer of Love, which saw thousands of hippies descend on San Francisco for anti-war protests.  That was also the same year that the Monterey…

Ed also has both the #1 album and the #1…
