Three teenage boys in small-town Southern Ontario are thrilled when Luke Cooper, a mysterious American fugitive with a gunshot wound in his leg, decides to crash their secret hideout. Luke tells them that he's a cop on the run from corrupt colleagues, and swears them to silence. As he recuperates, he becomes their buddy and confidante. By the time the boys realize Luke is not who he pretends to be, they're in way over their heads. Written by Scott Rollans <srollans@freenet.edmonton.ab.ca>

User Reviews

A well done independent flick!
5 March 2001 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

I am a huge fan of the movie 'Final Destination' and think that Devon Sawa is a good actor, thats why I saw The Boy's Club and because it really sounded intriguing. Three teenage boys have a secret hideaway in the woods and spend all of their spare time there due to the teacher's strike in their small town of Ontario. But when they encounter a mysterious drifter named Luke who is hiding out in their shack, things take a turn for the worst. At first things go fine. The three boys, Kyle, Brad and Eric admire this stranger and think he's really cool, but Luke has a deadly secret. I won't spoil it for you guys but this film is really excellent and kept me glued to the screen. The only other independent feature I have seen is the 1978 classic 'Halloween'. The Boy's Club is no Halloween, but it is a great flick. I am desperately trying to find a copy of this to buy. Amazon.co.uk don't have this available and American video cassettes don't work over here in Australia so I am in a fix. That's how much I love The Boy's Club. The film is well acted by it's young stars and you will really hate Chris Penn in the end. Don't let the independent/B-grade feel to this movie fool you, it is really cool and one of the best flicks I have seen in a long time.
