Movie Info

Reckless is the word for rebellious teenaged Johnny Rourke (Aidan Quinn). With a drunken dad and a police-blotter rap sheet as long as his arm, Quinn pursues an "impossible" romance with Tracey Prescott (Daryl Hannah), a girl from a wealthy, highly respected family. Tracey is thrilled at the prospect of kicking over the traces with Johnny, and soon proves to be as big a hellraiser as he is....if not more so. Reckless was written by Chris Columbus, just before he hit pay dirt with Gremlins and The Goonies.

Critic Reviews for Reckless

All Critics (1) | Top Critics (1)

Foley's feature debut treads the familiar turf of defiant teenagers, basically a compilation of contrivances and cliches lifted out The Wild One (Brando), Rebel Without Cause (James Dean), and most recently, All the Right Moves (Tom Cruise).

Audience Reviews for Reckless

I liked Johnny's answers. carreer goals: GET OUT OF HERE what do you hope to get out of life: MORE !!!!!!!!!!!! and yes the ending with Johnny & Tracy riding out of the city while Bob Seger was singing one of my favorite songs that I still listen to "Roll me away" was awesome

I really had to suspend my belief to go along with the idea that Daryl Hannah and Aiden Quinn were high school kids, but once I was able to do that, they were able to convince me of their romance.
