Audience Reviews for The Paperboy
One of the greatest post-pubescent performances I have ever seen. Whoever had the idea of casting this Marc Marut boy as a teenage psycho killer is a genius. The ultimate "Eddie Haskell" as my father would say. It's like he's taken straight out of a cartoon and placed in reality with a bunch of realistic characters - totally bizarre. His character hits home very hard for me personally because he shares so many characteristics with a character that I created for my good friend Dan Pederson, back in my 2004 film, "April Showers". I'll never forget that character...Pete Hinkle was the name, and now this kid, Johnny MacFarlan is completely channeling him and bringing him back for me! Awesome!
This movie itself would be a complete stinker if it weren't for Marc Marut's frighteningly realistic voice-cracking, pubescent freak outs. But, fortunately, his performance alone makes this one a true cult classic and unlike anything else the history of film has to offer! You gotta see it!
