Goofs

When Howard leaves the boys' apartment before the ball game, "The Diamond Head Game" is playing on the living room TV (a series distributed by Columbia Pictures Television, who also packaged this film). The short-lived game show aired for the first half of 1975, yet the film is clearly set in the present time (late 1980, when filming took place). See more »

18 June 2008 | by latricia7405See all my reviews

I remember seeing this movie when I was a kid now, I am a full grown woman and I remember this guys face in my dreams. That movie is the measuring stick of child abuse movies, I loved it. I wish I could buy it on DVD. He played that role good!!!!! I don't know where I could get, I remember that when I watched this movie I was about 12 or 13 and I was scared to be by myself, so, if you ever find this movie please please watch it with your kids, it will make todays kids think twice about wearing tight clothes and stuff like that, being on my space, watch this movie young ones and it will change your mind, I PROMISE!!!!! thank you!!!!
