It's 1955 and curious 14-year-old Bronx kid Lenny has a mission for his summer: to witness two adults in the midst of an "act of love." When his mother sends him to Queens to stay with his pregnant aunt and uncle, Lenny thinks his plan is doomed, until he meets his gorgeous adult neighbor Hedy and hooks up with some like-minded neighborhood kids. Soon, Lenny is learning more than he ever expected about life, love and growing up. Written by
during the block party scene, right after Hedy introduces her boyfriend Dr. Flynn to Lenny, Johnny, and Lenny's parents. After the camera pans the guitar player and accordion player in the band, you see Jason Alexander wearing a brown hat and dancing with his wife, Daena E. Title. See more »
Lenny refers to the comic book "G.I. Joe" when he is almost caught by Heddy when he is hiding in her closet. The "G.I. Joe" character/toy was introduced in 1964 and the related comic book much later. Since the story was set in the 1950s ~(1953-55), Lenny could NOT be reading G.I Joe comics. See more »
Has anyone ever told you about the birds and the bees?
Yeah, we learned about it in biology. Bees sting and birds crap on your head.

I stumbled upon this film on IFC, had nothing better to do, so I sat & watched. I found myself thoroughly enjoying this movie! The kids are real kids, speaking the way kids speak. Ryan Merriman plays Lenny so well, and I loved Amy Braverman's Alice character. I felt, watching her, like I was watching myself at that age, and was rooting for her & Lenny to kiss...and was not disappointed! Catch it if you can!
