This is the third adaption of an S.E. Hinton novel that features Emilio Estevez. He played Johnny Collins in 'Tex' and Two-Bit Matthews in 'The Outsiders', which were supporting characters in those other books. Emilio's character in 'That Was Then...This is Now" is one of the main characters. See more »

That was then, this was now was, to my opinion, a pretty good movie, with plenty of action to keep you interested. The characters however, look different from what I imagined in the book. Still, Mark and Bryon made things interesting both in the book and the movie. A lot of the other characters, such as Cathy, M&M, Charlie, Angela, and the shepherd brothers also made the movie and the book interesting, especially near the end.
