Critic Reviews for Digging to China
A groundbreaking performance by Kevin Bacon
A pleasant coming-of-age film about a ten year-old female misfit and her friendship with a retarded young man.

Audience Reviews for Digging to China
A very boring movie, the movie is about a girl living with an alcoholic mother and sister that is weird. She befriend an odd fellow played by Kevin Bacon. The problem with the film was it didn't struck me once. I lost interest during the first few minutes of the film which made the movie disastrous and boring. I was no only left so bored, but filled with contempt. I wanted some batteries, so I could chuck them at the film. This could have been a better film, but it wasn't. It makes itself somewhat of a cliche.
Digging to China is the movie equivalent to being gang raped by a bunch of downs syndrome teenagers. They're too retarded to even fucking rape you right. That said this movie has countless PRICELESS scenes with Kevin Bacon playing the part of a retarded person POORLY. I can't emphasize that enough. The movie is worth that alone. Watch this when you're not feel particularly attentive and fast forward through - just stopping on the particularly tardy Kevin Bacon moments.
Ooooh, two of my favorite actors: Mary Stuart Masterson and Kevin Bacon. Great movie. Kinda like What's Eating Gilbert Grape....
