Movie Info

Newly discharged from a psychiatric hospital, 19-year-old Neil Lawrence (D.J. Qualls), the son of the governor of New York, enrolls in an ivy-covered prep school to straighten out his life. Things look promising when he meets the lovely 17-year-old T.J. (Rachel Blanchard), but she has hidden problems of her own. When Neil, a closet J.D. Salinger fanatic, is assigned to write a paper about whatever happened to Holden Caulfield, the protagonist of Salinger's coming-of-age classic The Catcher in the Rye, he takes the project too far and sets out on an unauthorized, hazard-filled journey of discovery in New York City -- with T.J. along for the ride.

Critic Reviews for Chasing Holden

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

The melodrama of this film is odd considering the novel that inspired it.

June 27, 2002 | Rating: D | Full Review…

If this sounds a lot like one of those angst-ridden teen movies: My Trip To New York With My Dying Girlfriend, that's because it is one of those movies.

June 28, 2002 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Phony from beginning to'd be well advised not to catch the film.

June 27, 2002 | Rating: D | Full Review…

A direct-to-video adventure in mixed messages and teen angst if ever I've seen one.
