Its pretty much just like the book
6 July 2000 | by (NY) – See all my reviews

Disney Pictures did a pretty good job on this movie. Matt Dillon played a really good Tex McCormick and the other actors and actresses were really good too. The movie was almost like the book except for little differences. The only thing i did not like were the cast members. Now! wait don't get me wrong they all did a wonderful job, but the only one that seemed to fit the description of the character as in the book was Matt Dillon. That dosen't really matter, its the movie not the book. So it should be different,and its a good movie. Just that you can't really rent it anywhere so you will probaly have to buy it. I had to.
