Actor Anthony Michael Hall played a character called Daryl Cage. At the time the movie was made and released, his co-star, actress Jenny Wright, was in a personal relationship with actor Nicolas Cage. As such, the last name of the character of Wright's co-star was the same as her real life partner at the time the movie was made and released. See more »

Out of Bounds might have the potential for a mild, but good 80s teen thriller. Unfortunately, the predictable story and the cast screwed the chances for that.
If you have seen the 1991 Patrick Dempsey movie, Run, then you already have some idea of the plot behind Out of Bounds. Both are quite similar as those run for your life type movies, but Run is a much better choice if this be what suits your mood.
Anthony Michael Hall is Daryl Cage, a quiet kid from farm country, Iowa, who goes to stay with his older brother in Los Angeles. It all begins with identical bags at an airport luggage pickup where Daryl picks up a bag that (oh my god) looks just like his, only it contains a large supply of drugs. But the rightful owners mistakenly suspect Daryl for someone who is unexpectedly meddling in their business, so they to eliminate him. Long story short, as this mistake sadly leads to the death of his brother, Daryl is on the run not only from gangsters, but also from cops who think he's the murderer. Daryl befriends a witty, stylish young woman (Jenny Wright) who is his only chance at saving himself because obviously, he proves too stupid to help himself.
This could've been a decent movie, but right from the beginning, the movie is just far too predictable for any of the sudden suspense moments to work on the audience. And second, Anthony Michael Hall either behaves like he was too good to be in this movie, or his character Daryl is supposed to be so apathetic, that it's hard to believe someone would react this way given the situation he's in. The only good thing about this movie is the likable Jenny Wright who reminded me of Emily Lloyd's performance in Cookie. And the music is alright too, as Stuart Copeland's 80s compositions typically were.
But, I found that the bad qualities (the story and the leading man) seemed to outweigh even that. Therefore, I recommend watching 'Run' instead. The story is kind of similar--a young student (Patrick Dempsey) who was at the wrong place at the wrong time suddenly becomes the target of both the mafia and their team of corrupt cops thanks to one very big misunderstanding. Likewise, a young woman (Kelly Preston) is their at his aid. Run has better action, a better story, and hell if it's 80s teen stars you're looking for, why not settle for Dempsey?
