"This is a fine film however, the Digiview Entertainment DVD edition is the version that has been edited for broadcast television. Full screen with the profanity blanked out. I'm not very disappointed since I only paid a $1 for this DVD at Walmart. The story of the film is very engaging but, feels very closterphobic like a filmed stage play. All in all not a bad deal considering what you usually find in the dollar DVD bin. Good quality picture (compared to other bargain DVDs) just not the version of "Rites of Passage" available on other DVD editions. If you're a fan of the film and want to own it on DVD this is not the edition to purchase."

"I really enjoyed this movie. Dales oldest son, Dale Jr., checks in at a hotel, but, shockingly enough, 'he' is already checked in. Not really though. He catches his father with another woman. The two of them goes to the Summer cabin so Dean Stockwell (Dale Sr.) can 'explain.' They find out, to their surprise, Cameo (played superbly by Jason Behr)the youngest son is there. Trouble soon erupts when escaped serial killer Frank Dabbo (James Remar) and his sidekick enters the picture. This movie has a lot of unexpected twists and turns. It will cause a mixture of feelings. Learning to forgive. Sadness. Regrets. Secrets unveiled. I recommend this movie if you are a fan of action and drama."
