Reviews
Mine: Really nice coming of age story. Matt Dillon shows that he can act when he gets good material.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Very likable film set in 1963, about a Brooklyn boy from a working-class family whose head is turned by a slick sharpie who holds court at the beach club where he works. Crenna scores a bull's-eye as the fat cat (and catches a glimpse of himself in The Real McCoys while testing his remote control TV in one scene). Nice coming-of-age story written by Neal Marshall (no relation to director). Tomei's film debut.
