Time Out says

In Reiner's superior slice of teen nostalgia, Dreyfuss is the now middle-aged writer, looking back at the dear dead days beyond recall when he and a group of young friends ventured into the local woods where they believed a corpse was buried. Based on an (apparently) semi-autobiographical story by Stephen King, the film covers similar territory to countless other rites-of-passage dramas. The Ben E King theme song and all the imagery of tousled adolescents preening themselves like miniature James Deans rekindle memories of old jeans commercials, but the film is so well-observed and so energetically acted by its young cast that mawkishness is kept at bay.

A very good movie and interesting story that illustrates the importance and influence of family, friends and environment in the lives of young people. I just wish fewer four-letter words were thrown around.

This is truly one of the best films of its kind. So true to life of a 12 year old growing up in a small town. I grew up in Yorkshire in a small town, My friends when I was ten have long faded but they were wonderful innocent friendships. Peter Nash , Steven Brent, Andy Wild, Rob Thomson & Gerrard Dunn. We are all 50 Now, I have a 11 year old son who saw the film with me today he loved it. Great film Great Memories, At the end it's all we have.
