A teenage delinquent who goes on a drunken joyride is left in jail overnight by his parents in the hope that he might learn a lesson from it. But events follow which result in the boy spending far longer behind bars than anyone had foreseen. Written by
In this film Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez play father and son with bad tempers and a lot of pent-up anger. When the son Danny gets arrested one night for driving drunk and rear-ending a police car, his out-of-work father decides to `teach him a lesson' and decides to let him spend the night in jail. One thing leads to another and soon Danny is spending day after day behind bars having become enmeshed in the system.
Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez are both very good in their respective roles and the other characters are well done as well. While the script has a bit of an `after-school-special' feel about it, it is consistently interesting and it does serve to tell a story that needs telling.
