Excellent coming-of-age tale with solid acting from everyone. The characters feel like people you could actually know, and you grow to care about them as the story unfolds. On the surface it's about the summer a group a friends went in search of the body of a boy who'd been hit by a train, but it's not really about what they're looking for as much as it's about their journey to get there. Great film that introduces actors who made a big splash later on (good and bad) such as Jerry O'Connell, Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman, Kiefer Sutherland and John Cusack.

Rob Reiner made what was considered, at the time of it's original release, the most faithful adaptation of a Stephen King story to date. It's interesting to notice that King's name was kept very low key. The decision to distance this film from King was based upon the mistaken idea that he only wrote horror and people seeing his name would assume it was a horror movie.

A Timeless Classic
Catherine Strock | Virginia | 04/20/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"One of the best (if not the best) coming of age movies of all time. This movie has it all. It has murder mystery. It has misunderstood young men. It has hoodlums. It has flashbacks. And it has cussing cause it's cool. Although none of these actors, with the exception of Kiefer Sutherland, went on to make very major careers, maybe in River Phoenix's case because of his suicide, they all gave very convincing performances. The story was phenomenally captivating.From the start you won't want to stop, it is so much fun. It is a very serious movie, but at the same time it has a lot of well placed humor. All the characters have very distinctive and very likable personalities. The only thing I didn't like was the end where they told us what became of the boys as adults, and said the "bad boy" was going to turn his life around but was stabbed. Stephen King seems to like to kill kids (another example of this is "The Mist" where the father is forced to shoot his own son). This movie is a timeless classic. I will cherish it forever, and will definitely show this to my children. 50/10!"
Best "coming of age" movie of all time!

"When the author (Stephen King) says this is the best depiction of one of his stories done in movie form, you can bank on it. It is based largely on King's childhood and some of his childhood friends at age 12. It has a unique universal appeal to many of us who experienced many of the same things and had similar friends at that age. This has got to be the best movie ever done about "coming of age", the journey, and the people and things we encountered at that innocent age. Its a movie you can watch over and over without ever tiring of it. Five stars, and richly deserved, for this Rob Reiner production."

"This 1986 adaption of the Stephen King novella The Body stars River Phoenix, Corey Feldman and Keifer Sutherland. A group iof boys goes searching for a dead body encountering trouble along the way. I thought it was a worthwhile film having seen it as a kid and it stills holds up years later. Though tame, it is one of the better Stephen King adaptions though not horror oriented. I would recommend it."
