After multiple cuts and dubbing out language, the film went from a R rating to PG-13. Winona Ryder was very disappointed in the final cut of the film and did not promote it when released. She also has issues with the last minute title change from "The Girl You Want" to "Boys". See more »

Attractive leads, but where's the beef?
"Boys" is proof positive that two young, attractive leads, Wynona Ryder and Lukas Haas, can't always compensate for a complex, uninvolving plot. Make no mistake, Ryder and Haas are both as good as they can be, given the material, and their love scenes, particularly at the carnival, do generate a goodly ammount of heat. But, on the whole, the story is far too complex and uninvolving. By the time the central mystery is unraveled, you find yourself asking what all the fuss was about. In short, a dynamic team wasted on a trite picture.
