Storyline

In 1964 two high school friends, Brice and Cleveland leave their suburban neighborhood in Michigan to spend the summer in the countryside before going off to college. They are befriended by a lonely farmer, Jack Bodell, who offers them a place to stay. As days pass, Cleveland helps Jack around the farm and finds in him the father figure he lacks, while Brice falls in love with a local girl named Cindy. The unforgettable summer ends too soon, but the memories linger. Four years later Brice and Cleveland drive up to Jack's farm and learn that there is no going back... Written by Ron Teachworth

As unlikely a Bruce Campbell role as Woody Allen playing Judah Ben Hur!
18 May 2002 | by (Longmont, Colorado) – See all my reviews

Who would have thought it? Bruce Campbell (then 24) starring in a film that pulls an average/global user rating of 7.3, which is pretty much up there with the seriously popular film titles!

For once though, it is a rating that is spot on. A rarely glimpsed, ultra low-budget "rites of passage" flick that focuses on a couple of college friends who take a vacation together and who discover warmth, adulthood and in Campbell's case, young love. Very under-rated little movie and ultimately quite engrossing.

Quite frankly I had never heard of this film and but for a chance viewing on late night cable months ago, would have been none the wiser. Made after EVIL DEAD, it shows a side to Chapman rarely seen since, following his typecasting in horror films, often cameoing in those of his friend and mentor, director Sam Raimi.

Campbell was seen most recently (but probably not recognised) in Carrey's THE MAJESTIC
