an excellent documentary of the movie
28 May 2003 | by (Antwerp, Belgium) – See all my reviews

When I bought the Stand By Me Collector's Edition, this documentary was included on the DVD. It offers a lot of information, which is very interesting to Stand By Me fans. Rob Reiner tells us about the auditions, about the hard work they had shooting the train scene etcetera. It's a joy to hear him talk about his movie. Stephen King tells us how he felt when he saw his book on screen and they briefly discuss the differences between book and movie. (By the way King was very pleased with the movie, which is quite rare in his case, he almost never is pleased with an adaptation of his books) Wil Wheaton, Corey Feldman and Jerry O'Connell tell some stories about the shooting too and especially Wil tells us about working with River Phoenix. The documentary is told from a close-up POV, which makes it very intimate, but it's a pity there is no "behind-the-scenes" material on it, for example, where you could see the four boys just having fun behind the set.

But overall this is a great documentary which will please everyone who liked (maybe even just a bit) Stand By Me.
