In his directorial debut, Tony Bill assembles a truly remarkable cast of youngsters with little or no previous acting experience.

A film of ingredients, rather than ideas realized and integrated: it panders on different, disjunctive levels.

The message that accompanies the central theme -- Kids are basically Nice -- is that Brute Force Rules.

This movie is fun to watch because it touches memories that are shared by most of us, and because its young characters are recognizable individuals, and not simplified cartoon figures like so many movie teen-agers.

A sweet little movie about characters who really seem to be people, and that sort of verisimilitude is rarer than it ought to be nowadays.
