Movie Info

This film is set in an affluent Long Island neighborhood, the home of boyhood chums Patrick McGaw, Steve Partavecchio, and Joseph Lindsay. With too much time on their hands, the kids turn to crime for "kicks." Events snowball into a climactic life-or-death drug deal, which threatens to end in disaster.


Critic Reviews for Amongst Friends

  • Mr. Weiss is more successful in introducing these people and setting them in motion than he is in allowing sharp, revealing details to emerge from the turmoil that surrounds them.

  • In the final analysis, Amongst Friends works not because it's an expose of upscale, suburban violence and drug use, but because it takes the time to develop its characters so that the events which swirl around them involve us.

  • Amongst Friends would love to be a Mean Streets for the '90s, and its Long Island streets may be mean enough, but here they're barely semi-tough.

  • Rob Weiss's Amongst Friends, a gangster rites-of-passage tale, owes much to Mean Streets and Goodfellas -- reminiscing voice-overs, bustling hand-held camera, boys bonding and boiling over -- but it has its own slender charm.

  • In this Jewish Mean Streets, Weiss substituts Scorsese's Italian lowlifes with upper-middle class Jewish youngsters who don't drift into crime but rather choose it consciously as a way of life.
