Chicago crime kid Mick O'Brien (Sean Penn) has been sent to a juvenile prison for vehicular manslaughter. Most unfortunately, the person he kills is the kid brother of his nemesis Paco Moreno (Esai Morales), who vows revenge by raping Mick's girlfriend (Ally Sheedy). Paco is caught and sent to the same prison where he reworks his revenge plan, and Mick has no choice but to defend himself.Written by
When Horowitz puts the "acid" on the fence, he only puts it on one side. When they escape, they kick out both sides of the fence. See more »
I'm sorry about your little brother, Moreno.
Oh, you really break my heart, you know that? I'm sorry about your old lady. I'm sorry I didn't get to finish the job.

When Bad Boys was filmed, at least two scenes had two alternate versions -- both revolving around the same thing. When Tweety and Viking are giving O'Brien his work assignment, the original theatrical version had him on "shit house." The television version, though used the alternate take which has him on "latrine patrol." The same was done when Paco gets into the prison and O'Brien gives him "shit house" in the theatrical version, but in the television version again, the alternate take of "latrine patrol" is used.

Sean Penn, Esai Morals, Ally Sheedy, and the other principles in this film deliver great, realistic, gritty performances. Certainly one of the great performances of Penn's career.
My only complaint is that the DVD release by ARTISAN ENTERTAINMENT & REPUBLIC PICTURES - Deletes 2 scenes from the original. (That may explain the bargain pricing). The deleted scenes I noticed are: 1. The scene in which Ally Sheedy's character picks Esai's character out of a line-up. 2. A scene inside the Juvenile facility where the inmates are watching the Richard Widmark film "KISS OF DEATH", where he pushes the old, wheelchair-bound lady down the stairs, much to the delight of the inmates!
