Critic Reviews for Chasing Holden
The melodrama of this film is odd considering the novel that inspired it.
If this sounds a lot like one of those angst-ridden teen movies: My Trip To New York With My Dying Girlfriend, that's because it is one of those movies.
Phony from beginning to end...you'd be well advised not to catch the film.
A direct-to-video adventure in mixed messages and teen angst if ever I've seen one.
Audience Reviews for Chasing Holden
Chasing Holden is a story about the teenage Neil Lawrence, who has a writing assignment about the life of Holden Caulfield after Catcher and the Rye. To get the story Neil travels with a friend to find J.D. Salinger and along the way they get themselves into trouble. This film reminds me a lot of the film Ordinary People. The complexity of the character of Neil Lawrence surprised me. This story surprised me even though there were inconsistencies. Overall, it wasn't the worst nor was it the best.
I don't like D.J. Qualls that much, he's not really leading man material. I guess if you like Catcher in the Rye, it's going to be a better film because they make LOTS of references to correlations because the guy is obsessed!
