Rebellious football player Johnny falls for cheerleader Tracy. They come from opposite backgrounds; she's from a comfortable well off family, his is poor and broken. Tracy already has a boyfriend but he acts like a jerk, so Johnny has to win Tracy's heart - something she seems reluctant to let him do.Written by
If it makes a 20 year impression, it must have something..
I saw this movie 20 years ago and have never seen it since, yet I keep waiting to see it on cable or at the video stores or in discount bins or any place so I can purchase it, and watch it over and over again. This was the first time I ever saw Aidan Quinn, but his acting left a deep impression on me and has ever since. After "Reckless" if I saw his name on a movie I made a point of seeing it, in my opinion he never seems to get enough credit even back then. His movie love interest (Darryl Hannah) well I didn't even remember it was her, so I guess that says it all for me. I recently have been addicted to Firefly the TV series ("Serenity" the movie) and was discussing with my spouse that I believed the character Jayne Cobb (Adam Baldwin) was the same person who played opposite Aidan in "Reckless" sure enough when searching for this I found he was, so I would have to say he left an impression as well.
I believe if a movie you've seen only once can stick with you for this long, it must be good. And hearing many others, who also have seen it 20 years earlier, still talking about it, then I think it should become a classic and re-released.
