Storyline

Feldman (Elijah Marcano and Scott Bosely) and Haim (Justin Ellings and Casey Leach) skyrocketed to fame after meeting on the set of the blockbuster movie The Lost Boys and quickly became young Hollywood heartthrobs. They collaborated on popular comedies including The Lost Boys, License to Drive and Dream a Little Dream and basked in being Tinseltown royalty in their early teens. But as their stars rose, their lives began to quickly spin out of control with endless partying and drugs. As their fame and fortune increased, dark secrets haunted them. Young and impressionable, the actors suffered through years of sexual abuse at the hands of industry insiders. With studio offers drying up and their reputations becoming tabloid fodder, Feldman eventually turned his life around by getting sober, getting married and having a son. Haim, however, continued his downward spiral and by the time the two starred in their own reality series, The Two Coreys, not even Feldman was able to save him.

A very B movie retelling, will apeal to those from the 80's
23 April 2018 | by juneebuggySee all my reviews

This was a VERY B-movie retelling of the relationship between Corey Feldman and Corey Haim, including the start of their teen friendship during the '80s, their rise to fame and their struggles with drugs, partying, and the untimely death of Haim in 2010. No real secrets given away here and also a one sided telling through the eyes of Corey Feldman alone.

This is a very basic movie, it watches sorta like a behind the music documentary with dramatizations of the situations/years unfolding. The acting is bad and the story disjointed or with a skipped over storytelling style. We see their first movie roles, their families, the partying, the drugs, the abuse, its sad.

We get glimpses of Michael Jackson, (nothing given away there) and both Feldman and Haim are sexually abused by industry men who are meant to be watching after them. If this movie had been made 10 years ago the scandal and focus would have been on the drug abuse now its sexual abuse. The very sad thing about this is that both of these guys were just used up and spit out by the industry. I remember watching the reality show The Two Coreys which for the most part focused on Haim trying to get or stay sober and break back into Hollywood. Sadly he lost his fight, this is briefly touched on here. The ending is haunting.
