This is the third adaption of an S.E. Hinton novel that features Emilio Estevez. He played Johnny Collins in Tex (1982) and Two-Bit Matthews in The Outsiders (1983), which were supporting characters in those other books. Emilio's character, in this film, is one of the main characters. See more »

Okay, I've seen this movie at Language Arts class AFTER I read the book. I liked it, and this story is "different" from other teenage stories. Always happy-endings. But S.E. Hinton wrote this brilliant story about the downtown boyz who are always in trouble. The ending freaked me out. It was good.
In the MOVIE, it describes Mark as the main character. Probably Emilio Estevez was popular that he had to be the star. His acting is great. But let's see, Bryon in a fluffy hair? I thought Mark had that style. In the book, after Charlie dies, Bryon is upset and Mark is not. But in the movie it is VERy different. And M&M??!! He is supposed to be so sweet and innocent. The movie describes M&M as a boy who knows EVERYTHING and what's going around the world. He looked like a Senior guy instead of 13-year-old kid. The most unbelievable part is the ENDING. ANOTHER sweet happy silly ending. Mark forgives Bryon and they become friends again. Cathy still sticks up with Bryon. Gosh, give me a break! The movie was disappointing, so you should read a BOOK.
Oh, don't miss Morgan Freeman as Charlie in the movie!!
