Storyline

Vision Quest is a coming of age movie in which high school wrestler Louden Swain decides he wants to be something more than an average high school athlete and sets his sights on a prize that many don't think he can win - he then sets out to reach his goal alone, without much support from his father or coach. His father rents a room to a young drifter, Carla. Swain falls in love with her and she helps him stay focused and prevents him from losing sight of his goals.

Goofs

During the weigh-in, when Louden is seen standing next to Shute, it is clear that Shute is twice the size of Louden. Also, when the 101 pounders are weighing in, it is clear that due to their muscular physique, they weigh at least 130 pounds. See more »

Still a fun movie
31 March 2002 | by (Charlotte North By God Carolina) – See all my reviews

I've been a fan for over 10 years, both my daughters love this movie, and as a former HS wrestler I'm probably hooked for life. Begs to be remade with less emphasis on the goo goo eyes for Linda Fiorentino but Matthew Modine is just terrific, both as kid on a mission and a wrestler. 9/10
