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.

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 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.

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.
