The movies narration was originally performed by director (William Richert). 20th Century Fox decided the movie would be better geared towards a teen audience and Richert's narration sounded 'too grandfather like'. After much debating with Richert, (River Phoenix) was brought back over a year after the film wrapped to record the narration that would replace that of Richert in the final cut. See more »

Everyone tries awfully hard to breath some life into this bad script. In a nutshell, the main character is unsure of his future. All his friends are off to college while he hasn't a clue where to go. His only talents are reciting some bad poetry and many dalliances. There are no endearing characters. The lead character, Phoenix, is down-right unlikeable and I was only wishing that when he was getting his face pounded in one scene that it could have continued a little longer. After all the ordeal, does the character have any greater personal insight? Nope. Still directionless as he lies to his father in the closing scene. Interesting only in seeing some familiar actors in their early days. Plenty of over-acting by Phoenix through-out.
