80s After-School Special memories
29 May 2002 | by See all my reviews

Summed up - this is just another after-school special - Typical run of the mill story about the stereotypical good kid with his perfect circle of high school friends who befriend the 'new kid' in school. In one of Kevin Dillon's earliest, and most forgettable performances, he plays the black sheep new kid who has a knack for finding trouble (whether it be stealing cars or getting into fights). Of course Harry, against the advice of his concerned friends and family, continues to stick by his side - thinking that all he needs is a chance. As in most after-school movies, there is always the lesson to be learned and "No Big Deal" is no different. Cookie-cut morality lesson from beginning to end. Watch for early 80s nostalgia only!
