An "OK" movie. It's watchable, especially young people seem to like it. But see "Tex", with Matt Dillon, instead. That was a movie that actually captured bored youth at their best and worst. The ending of "Desert Blue"gives me the impression that they didn't know how to end the film! Too bad... And Christina Ricci's character was overplayed. Sorry, not believeable to me, but teens like her "antics", and why not. But when you get older, you'll know what bad acting (or scripting) really is when you see it.
Also, am I crazy, or are the first 2 "anonymous" reviews from march 1999 too good to be true? In other words, "nice try, whoever-you-are-that-is-connected-with-the-making-of-this-film-and-want-to-p romote-it!"...
