Two youths commit a string of felonies while retrieving a stolen watch. Thankfully they cannot be tried as adults. Pretty bad and I didn't like the white kid at all--kept waiting for him to reach out and let his mom know he was okay.

I know this movie is crap but it's a movie that I grew up to. Plus, you've gotta love the Mercedes!

Two preteens act like adults in stealing cars, waving guns, and going to bars while trying to find an absentee father. The white kid Obie bothered me. His mom deserved to be treated better.

Saw this movie as a somewhat innocent kid then again as a cynical adult.i still love the 'sheltered suburb kid meets street-wise hustler' angle and their need for guidance without fathers they desperately miss.

An epic tail of 2 kids...that's it. Two stupid kids that run off and realise, the world isn't quite what they expected MAN I LOVED THIS FILM!!!

'Dumbest white boy in the history of white boys' teams up with street kid in borrowed Mercedes to retrieve his stolen diver's watch and locate his new friend's father.

A hip comedy "classic" that's as much fun as it is a blast from the past.

An overly sentimental but still occasionally hilarious tale of two kids taking on gangsters and evil pawn shop owners with cap guns. Great cast, but annoying use of "Tutti Frutti" by Little Richard.

I'm a big admirer of Joe Eszterhas, the guy who wrote this movie, and the fact that Ivan Reitman was the executive producer didn't hurt either. That said, this movie is pretty awful. While the movie's heart is in the right place, it's just too goofy for my taste, and I love silly movies. Kids driving cars across America? Get out. The two kids that carry this movie are surprisingly good, and I bought their friendship, which is a testament to Eszterhas, and the movie did have some great moments, but its ruined by poorly executed sequences and silly plot points. It's watchable, but that doesn't mean it's good.
