Two school kids who are best friends are drinking on the side of a river. One friend bets the other that he can't swim across the river and "Reach The Rock". The friend takes the bet and drowns halfway towards the rock. The entire town blames the the kid for his friends death, he runs away never to be seen again. He eventually comes back to his home town of Shermerville and goes crazy, and starts to trash the town (i.e. breaking store-front windows, stealing a police car). He also meets up with his old high school girlfriend. The majority of the movie takes place in one night. Written by
I was flipping channels on a boring Saturday afternoon and I came across it because there wasn't anything interesting to watch at the time. In a matter of minutes I was absorbed into the story. It was very interesting surprisingly because there was so much silence and very little dialogue. At the end, you see one of the main characters on a rock but I had no idea why but after reading the plot on this site I realize why. It reminded me of my other favorites: Pretty in Pink and Breakfast Club. But now I know why since this is a John Huges film. I always thought Molly Ringwald was the prettiest actress I ever saw, but after seeing Brooke Langton, that may not be the case. You should definitely watch this film. If you do not enjoy the story you will enjoy watching Langton.
