Christian Slater and Brian Bloom are a couple of best southern high school buds. But cheerleader Tammy Lauren gets between the two of them as if background getting between wouldn't be enough.
Brian's the high school rich kid who's the star football player and of course gets all the girls in high school. Christian is the kid from the wrong side of the tracks, he's the kind who will join the army just to get out of the place he is. In fact if it wasn't for Tammy deciding that marriage was the way to get out of that backwater town they all come from, it's probably what Slater would have done.
Brian goes missing and later Christian's arrested for the crime.
Both of these two are a couple of New York metropolitan area kids and they sound it. Even actual location shooting can't cover up their New York speech pattern though they both valiantly attempt to sound like they're from Georgia.
Even giving allowances that this is a made for TV movie, it's still a pretty bad film. Christian Slater's career was just getting going at this time on the big screen, how they talked him into this is a mystery.
He should have done something to get out of doing this film.
