Critic Reviews for That Was Then...This Is Now
Audience Reviews for That Was Then...This Is Now
This movie has great actors. It's a subtle character study on teenagers based on the book by S.E. Hinton (The Outsiders, Rumblefish) and the screenplay adapted by Emilio Estevez. It's a movie where if you like it then you'll really love it and will probably watch it numerous times. More of a cult movie.
I came into this film after reading the book and without any reviews. That was my first mistake. My second? Watching the whole thing. This movie was cheesy and it made me wanna cry. Not because of the story, the script. The script was awful. As good as the actor that played M&M is as an actor, I didn't like him as M&M. The music was cheesy and stupid and it was way too rushed and they missed important scenes that were in the book. I hate how they moved it to the 80's. It's supposed to take place a year after The Outsiders. The book was amazing and this movie could've been so great.
An okay teenage drug drama movie with a good cast and interesting characters, but I hate the ending. This movie disappointed me. It's okay, but not good.
