Movie Reviews

Best Coming of Age Movie Since Breaking Away
James J. Varela | Sarasota, FL United States | 01/26/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a wonderful Coming of Age movie for young people age 13-17. The film is not some silly runaway to NYC story. It tells the good the bad and the ugly about the life of these 2 teens and how they met and their adventures. Rachel Blanchard as usual is cute as a button in this movie."

"Random rentals are a 50/50 bet for me as to whether they'll be engagingly watchable and this one was in the good 50. It's not an amazingly solid script but it's effective as a "me and you against the world" type thing.
Bland Romantic Movie with Bite
E. Ellis | New York, NY | 06/10/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The movie was bland, and seems like a lifetime network movie reject, but yet it has an undeniable edge, because of the ending, and also the actors in the movie. rachel blanchard and dj qualls elevated this movie to five stars because of their superb acing abilities."
Abandon All Hope
Edwin B. Arnaudin | Brevard, NC United States | 07/02/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I purchased this DVD in fall 2005 when I was working on a thesis concerning J.D. Salinger in film. When the movie arrived, I knew I was in trouble: the type at the top of the cover said, "Starring DJ Qualls of the hit 'The New Guy.'"

This is the worst movie I have ever seen. "Plan 9 From Outer Space" was at least cohesive. Besides a scene of sudden, unnecessary profanity that Qualls' character spits before returning to his subdued "nice guy," there are many other inconsistencies. The most notable example is when Rachel Blanchard's character shoots at Qualls when he enters their hotel room. She mistakes him for the sleazy, stalking hotel manager and blasts a bullet just over his head. Instead of freaking out, he lazily says something like, "Whoa! Watch your aim," and then goes back to being "the cool guy." Holden Caulfield may have been manic-depressive, but do the script and acting need to be bipolar?

It's a shame that this movie (don't call it a film) is so bad. The premise is intriguing and Qualls has emerged into an interesting actor, most recently in "Hustle and Flow."

However, the true shame is that "Mystery Science Theatre 3000" is on longer on the air. Their roast of "Chasing Holden" would have been priceless.
