I remember leaving this movie, thinking "I better be good!"
28 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

Oh boy, I was 10yrs when this movie came out, and played at the Capri Theatre in downtown Dallas, when streets were safe for little African-American kids to be left alone. I was too young to care about the cinematic flaws of the movie, but not too young to 'feel' the impact of the repercussions for being a bad kid!!! My friends and I talked about this movie for YEARS afterwards, and I'm sure, I had more than one reflective thought during my growth, that helped keep me out of trouble! Maybe the youth of today could do well by viewing this!!! So many people have never even heard of Johnny Tough!!!!
