During the shots where it is considered "morning" like when Tex is riding Rowdy before school, where a hungover Tex overhears Mason and Cole's conversation, and when Tex and Mason's father arrives, the sunlight tells us that it is noon, when the story line is supposed to be around 7 or 8 o clock in the morning.

Has there ever been anybody who could play troubled teenagers as well as Matt Dillon could? His performance as a fifteen-year-old rural boy who is being raised by his older brother is his best; at least of his earlier films. The director Tim Hunter gives the movie a slow and steady slice of life feel, as the two siblings deal with problems involving friends, money, horses, sex, and in a ridiculously false scene - drug dealers. Overall it's a surprisingly mature and straightforward family drama from Disney. Ben Johnson has a memorable part as the repressive father of both Meg Tilly and Emilio Estevez. ***1/2 out of ****
