Out on the Edge
13 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have to disagree with the other comments made on this movie! This was an awesome movie! This movie was totally believable. It does show the pain and agony that some kids are put in when they are in "they system!" There are some really bad parents out there and this move shows how some parents can be perceived as being unconcerned! I saw this movie at a time in my life when I actually believed that Rick Schroeder was playing my life! You would have to be in a similar situation to understand the incredible emotion Rick portrayed in some scenes! This movie helped show what an awesome actor Rick is. I think the movie was done very well. I am currently trying to get a copy through Ebay!
