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?Written by

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 »
When Millie is shown writing in her diary, she switches from being right-handed (from 14:14 to 14:35) to left-handed (from 14:36 to 14:44). The left-hand scene is Millie in the MIRROR! Her gold bracelet is on her right wrist, the hand she writes with. In the mirror, it appears to be her left. Also, the table where she grabbed the pen with her toes was on HER right side. But in the mirror it looks like it was HER left side. See more »
[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]
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]
You're a punk, Sam! I ought to kill you!
[kids start gathering around the scene]
You fucking dickhead! I told you to never touch my camera!
[is pushed down to the ground, still fighting Josh]

Wonderful Breath of Fresh Air
With an all-child cast, it bears resemblance to "stand by me." A group of kids plot to pay the school bully back for years of abuse. They take him on a boat trip. If you want more, go see it. It was the best film I've seen this year. Throughout the duration of this classic, one element stuck out for me: Carly Schroeder. She is going to be a star and a half. She blows that annoying cherry blossom, Dakota Fanning, away. Rory Culkin, Macauly's little brother, was just perfect for the part of a naive kid, susceptible to his older brother's overbearing testosterone. Go see this film, because you will talk about it for hours on end. Perfect dinner movie. Take your girlfriend, boyfriend, significant other. Kids under 13, though portrayed in the film, just aren't ready for the material of this film, so don't bring your children.
