Goofs

An 800 meter time of 1:58 is nowhere near good enough to win a scholarship to Stanford. On top of that Stanford would never have any interest in a county championship, they would be more concerned with a potential recruit's performance on the state/national level. See more »

Run, Ricky, Run
17 September 2001 | by culwinSee all my reviews

So-so movie featuring Ricky - oops, I mean "Rick" - Schroder and a 27 year old Brad Pitt playing high school students. There isn't too much of a story here, and I'm not really sure what the point is. It is good in a way, but the plot just didn't interest me too much. Maybe they should have just released this as a TV-movie instead of a feature film. I guess it is OK if you are bored, but I'd only recommend renting it if you are a fan of Brad Pitt, Rick Schroder, or track. Oh, and the kid who plays Blossom's older brother is in it. Why did this movie receive an "R" rating??
