A cool film:
31 December 1998 | by (Illinois) – See all my reviews

I liked Boogie boy a lot. I think it was a good film. It did have a plot. It was about friendship and loyalty as well as drugs. Mark Dacascos was pretty good but I think Jaimz Woolvett was even better,but Joan Jett was by far the one who was really doing the best acting. She was very good with her small little part and I think many who see this film will remember her more then they will remember the two leads. I also really enjoyed the movie's soundtrack.
