  • You can envision a spin on this that isn't so bad, only because there were 35 versions of this movie in the mid-'90s - the malaise of the thirtysomething man. Looking for the genre's natural endpoint? It's the one that invokes Ferdinand the Bull.

  • The feature directing debut of actor Vin Diesel is a derivative, hanging out tale.

  • A rough but engaging character study.

  • It's far from remarkable but there's enough about Strays to convince you Vin Diesel's more than a bald guy with a funny voice and big ol' biceps.

  • Diesel is credible as Rick, a stray in Manhattan trying to go straight, and Lanza delivers a likeable girlfriend from a world far away from Rick's.

    This film is interesting to say the least. I had never known Vin Diesel had started off as a director as well, and actually, I can say that he could really succeed if he buckled down. "Strays" is a good and a bad film at the same time, mimicking a similar style of an infamous early 90s film "Kids", yet it is not as effective as Larry Clark's Magnum Opus. Diesel plays his character well enough, though he really doesn't have much to emote in the first two acts of the film, the third portion is really what brings the whole production home, it is where the best writing, best acting, and most effective open-ened catharsis occurs that actually make the whole first hour worth while. The actors could have been a bit better, though they visually fit their parts, and the camera work could have been much better, especially because of the tight, uncomfortable framing of shots that really didn't need to be so pushed in. Entertaining, the good scenes outweigh the bad, not by much, but just enough. Slow moving but the pacing is correct for this type of film. If more effort was put into the direction, I think this really could have been a realistic and raw piece, more than just it's last part.

    not a bad but not a great drama made and acted in by vin diesel. while interesting to see him not in an action role as per usual i think i'd still rather see him in one. drama isn't his forte

    A pretty well made movie. Diesel is phenominal as the lead star, and he also wrote and directed this film. The transformation from a character and location piece (where its strongest) to a typical love story is an uneven transition, but once its there, its pretty well fleshed out. As said, Diesel gives probably his second best performance (with his first best being from "The Fast and the Furious", obviously) of his career, but a better ending would've made this an automatic recommendation. Instead, its just an okay movie. Here's hoping Vin makes a comeback, he's got talent, he just needs to utilize it to a lasting degree in Hollywood.

    Not a very good movie...the ending in particular was pretty lame. But staring at Vin Diesel the whole time was a plus! :)
