Trivia

The original title of the movie was supposed to be "Cherry Pink", based on the song of the same name. However, when the producers wanted to buy the right to incorporate the song into the movie, they found that the price was too high. Thus the name and the song were dropped. See more »

Goofs

The bike Lenny rides to get help is not his. It is Marty's "Road Master" bicycle. See more »

Quotes

Polinsky: Has anyone ever told you about the birds and the bees?
Lenny: [sarcastically] Yeah, we learned about it in biology. Bees sting and birds crap on your head.

Pleasantly surprised
31 May 2003 | by ajbgSee all my reviews

I stumbled upon this film on IFC, had nothing better to do, so I sat & watched. I found myself thoroughly enjoying this movie! The kids are real kids, speaking the way kids speak. Ryan Merriman plays Lenny so well, and I loved Amy Braverman's Alice character. I felt, watching her, like I was watching myself at that age, and was rooting for her & Lenny to kiss...and was not disappointed! Catch it if you can!
