Boys

Critics Consensus

Winona Ryder's femme fatale proves to be a blank cipher in Boys, a mystery with an intriguing hook that quickly fizzles into teenage ennui.

    Wow this was a bad movie. Taped it off tv as I had never seen it and had liked a few of Winona's older movies. I remember hearing bad reviews on it when it was first out, but figured I'd check it out anyhow. I mean, I like some crap, let's face it. But this..... this was a whole new level. Ten minutes in and I'm already bored crapless. Ugly film to look at, not a whole lot happening in story either...I stuck with it to see what all the flashbacks were hinting at. Surely be interesting at the end... but no, lame as, and don't even get me started on the ending. I mean, where the hell where they running off to?! And Winona's acting in this was like she was mentally challenged, not injured. Extremely ill advised. Avoid.

    This film is one of those unfortunates that would have been great, but just didn't. Great music regardless!
