(not) as bad as you wanna be
8 May 1999 | by See all my reviews

A Boston Kickout is the act of vandalizing the neighorhood yards, uprooting plants and trampling gardens. It's behavior that a group of middle-class wannabe bad lads in a culturally bleak new town outside of London continue more from habit than conviction as they confront life after high school. What begins as a fast paced albeit low budget buddy movie becomes a more intelligent coming of age story with the appearance of Emer McCourt as the Irish lass who wants to have fun. Seems the answer to the main character's problem was to get laid - which was my theory when I was his age.
