Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: Though well-intentioned as a message picture, the film is too schematic and predictable, and ultimately may be more significant in featuring a new cohort of actors, including Brandon Frazer, Chris O'Donnell, Matt Damon, and others.

Rotten: School Ties has a leafy, genteel look that is somehow less than convincing, perhaps because the hairdos are too tidy and the resemblances to other prep-school stories too clear.

The Sad thing is that there is still that hate against Jews going around. Outstanding peformance by Brendan Fraser

Watch this instead of Dead Poets Society, it?s not brilliant but it?s much better.
