Coming of Age in the 1950s brilliantly executed
8 July 2006 | by oyvaySee all my reviews

I bought the DVD because the cast looked promising and Corey Haim is such a cutie...but was very pleasantly surprised at how well done this innocent coming of age film was done. The actors were all fine and great to see some of the old timers still at it...only flaw was the too USA-American accents....would have appreciated some attempt at a Canadian sound...There are elements of Pleasantville here and even a little bit of the old Lassie TV series. I gave it a ten. Hope you enjoy it too and I'd highly recommend 'Oh What a Night' the 1950s music is a treat and it's great for light entertainment and one of the best of this genre.
