The movie is adept at portraying aimlessness, getting at the greasy anomie that was so much a part of that time. But there is a lack of ambition, as if no one involved in creating the film wanted to cut deeper than a little double-edged nostalgia.

Not too much finesse distinguishes the script, which carries neither warmth nor particular interest for the various characters.

Like first love, this study of the growing pains of the leather jacket-bobby soxer Brooklyn high school set of 1957 is, by turns, cheerful, confused, juvenile and never fully realized.

A small masterpiece that places the mood and general ethos of the '50s with absolute precision and total affection.

Harmless coming-of-age-teen gang pic.

Affectionately done and thankfully short, since it's episodic.

The film is a character piece that wanders from place to place with no single impetus, although one gets the feeling that this technique is intentional.
