I was in this film
21 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was an extra in this film when I was 13 years old. I lived in Halstead, Kansas at the time, and it was probably the weirdest extravaganza to ever occur in that town. I'm in the background of a scene with Rosanna Arquette, and I'm also in the 'Parade' scene in the band. It was a fun experience and I made more money than I'd ever seen before for two days of hangin around. I got to meet the members of 'Toto' as well, since the famous 'Rosanna' was there.

It's not a bad movie but it's not that good either. I can understand the characters, but it's not a good portrayal of small town life. My dad, a small town minister and former UCLA film student, was asked to critique the script, but they didn't take any of his ideas into consideration. At the time, it was rumoured that the film was some kind of tribute to 'Picnic' (1955, Bill Holden/Kim Novak, also filmed partly in Halstead), but if anything, it's an insult to make that comparison. It's just a standard TV movie from the 80s :)
