Quotes

Charlie Waters: [after running away from a party with older high school kids] You sent me back in there! And there she is making out with that fucking creep!
Andy Gilmour: Who was?
Charlie Waters: Lindsey.
Andy Gilmour: Oh please, like you even had a chance. You wouldn't even know what to do even if you did!
Charlie Waters: Stop acting like you know more than me! I saw that girl you made out with at camp. She had a fucking mustache!
Andy Gilmour: Fuck you! You look like you're 10 years old. Stop kidding yourself!
Mrs. Waters: [Charlie's mom beeps the car horn and pulls up to the curb] You boys have fun?

Slow moving and meandering with little imagination
8 June 2015 | by Ed-ShullivanSee all my reviews

I felt the story line was weak so I won't blame the young actors for a boring film with just way too much cussing from the mouths of a bunch of 14 year old boys trying to find their way through a weeks worth of school and some after school antics which include a video store break-in, drinking booze and shooting beer cans....and a stray dog.

Sometimes a film provides a few great scenes that make an otherwise so so film memorable. In this case don't expect any wow moments just a bunch of kids trying to get through their lines in a dull film with little imagination.

I would not recommend this film to anyone but I would suggest trying a rerun of either the classic 1986 film Stand By Me or the 1999 Jake Gyllenhaal release of October Sky if you want a good film with young boys and their dramatic stories and dreams.
