Trivia

In an interview with Scott Cain of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (8-8-1986), Jenny Wright noted that the most difficult scene for her was the one in which Jeff Kober broke through a window and grabbed her around the neck from behind. She noted that it required a lot of concentration to keep the audience from realizing she was about to be attacked, even though she knew it herself. See more »

17 June 2000 | by (Allentown, PA) – See all my reviews

A pretty silly film, "Out of Bounds" begins as a teeny-bopper

style of movie that would suit John Hughes' tastes, and ends

to visit his brother, only to have his duffel bag accidentally

switched with a bag belonging to a dope runner. What follows is

is a likeable actor (in my book, he's a lot cooler than Leo

DiCaprio!), but I wasn't used to seeing him in a gritty action

film like this. He's too much of a pretty boy to look ind
