It is during the Cold War and all Americans have a view of Russians as one thing: bad people. A group of American boys discovers a Russian sailor washed up on the coast of Florida and decide to befriend him, assuming that he is friendly and will bring them no danger and thus go against the ideas of their parents, as well as the government.Written by
In this film, the boys have a small boat they use to get around in. On the boats hull you can see it has the mark "PT 109" painted on. In World War II, then future President of the United States Lieutenant, Junior Grade (LTJG) John F. Kennedy was the pilot of Navy motor torpedo boat PT 109. (LTJG) John F. Kennedy would later be recognized as a war hero for actions performed while on board the (MTB) PT 109. See more »
In the rescue scene in Act III, the huddled family on the boat (specifically Candi) changes position between shots. See more »

With the Cold War raging on, this film really was a change of pace, bringing out a more poignant look between two warring nations. While the reality of the story felt contrived, it proved to be one of those films which brought a warm feeling in the bottom of the soul. Despite the cheesy 80s music and styles, this is still a movie one has to see with a group of friends.
