Storyline

When Sam Merrick is beaten up by local bully George Tooney, Sam's older brother Rocky and his friends Clyde and Marty plan to pretend it's Sam's birthday to "invite" George on a boat trip in which they would dare him to strip naked, jump in the lake, and run home naked. But when Sam, his girlfriend Millie, Rocky, and Clyde see George as not much of a bad guy, they want to call off the plan, but Marty refuses. Will the plan go ahead as planned?

Trivia

When Rory Culkin tries to coax Trevor Morgan to call off the prank, we eventually see 'Josh Peck''s character interrupt him and then scratch his head (at around 28 mins). Scratching his head was Scott Mechlowicz's cue to say his line. See more »

Goofs

When George is asking Sam if the plan to take him out on the boat was true you can see George in the background moving his lips as if he is speaking but there is no audio to match this (at around 2 mins). This was corrected in the DVD. See more »

Quotes

George: [Josh sets his camera down and starts shooting baskets on the basketball court; Sam notices Josh's camera and picks it up, looking at it]
[first lines]
George: Hey! What do you think you're doing?
[knocks over Sam; the camera falls over a fence and lands on the ground, only showing Josh in frame fighting over Sam]
George: You're a punk, Sam! I ought to kill you!
[kids start gathering around the scene]
George: You fucking dickhead! I told you to never touch my camera!
Sam: Stop!

Wow
12 March 2005 | by MeanCreekfanSee all my reviews

This movie completely took me by surprise. I saw it mostly because I love independent films and have been a fan of Carly Schroeder and Rory Culkin for awhile now, and make it a point to see whatever either of them are in. But wow, was I shocked. I have never seen that kind of depth (acting wise) from kids like this. Every actor was brilliant and unique in there performances. The characters were realistic and relate able, the writing and directing (by first timer Jacob Aaron Estes) are immaculate, and the story is completely believable and leaves you thinking about it after you leave the theater. I can't even pick a stand out performance, because unlike most films today, all of the six leads were stand outs. This movie is unlike no other you'll see, and it will affect you in ways that will stay with you. I'd recommend this movie to anyone. 9/10.
