Coming of age tale tackles death; for older kids.

Common Sense Media

Dreadful coming of age movie about kids and death. Kudos for the effort, but it's just depressing.

July 18, 2003

The ultimate tearjerker. Proof positive that Mac still has what it takes for a comeback!

Juicy Cerebellum

Syrupy sweet, but just this side of watchable.

I have never cried in a film so many times in the last 20 minutes, and i don't cry that often in movies, but i cried a total of 5 times in the last 20 minutes of this movie. But overall the characters are likable, the acting is decent, and the drama is spot on
