Audience Reviews

4 stars

Matt Dillon has never been more subtly expressive and transparent, and maybe only funnier in Singles; Jim Meltzer is actually funny here as a straight man; there is some great camerawork and lighting. S.E. Hinton seems to be dealing with more Judy-Blume type issues here, so the movie works like a neorealist afterschool special.

The lousiest of S.E. Hinton's books to be brought to screen. Do yourself a favor and rent either the Outsiders or Rumble Fish they are so much better
