Storyline

Clifford Peache is the new kid in Lake View High School. Faced with all the stress that role entails he makes his situation worse by insulting Moody, the leader of a group of toughs who extort lunch money from kids. These punks pretend to be bodyguards for the kids to protect them from Linderman who, it is rumored, killed his brother in cold blood. Clifford befriends the sullen Linderman and hires him as his bodyguard. When Moody ups the ante, Linderman must decide whether fighting for what he believes in, with his haunted past and image, is justified. Written by Rick Gregory <rag.apa@email.apa.org>

This movie gave me warm fuzzie feelings.
8 September 2001 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

This is the movie I first spotted the actor Adam Baldwin and I have been a fan of his ever since. This is an extremely well acted movie. It is a family movie that kids and adults alike will enjoy. It is full of great characters and great character actors. I noticed that Dean Devlin had a small part as "Boy". Later on Adam Baldwin had a part in Independence Day which Dean Devlin wrote and produced. I wonder if this is where they first met. If you get the chance please watch this movie.
