  • Overview
  • Details
  • Cast
An easygoing teenager, Clifford Peach (Chris Makepeace, Meatballs) is finding it less than easy to fit in at his new high school, where a tough-talking bully (Matt Dillon, Rumble Fish) terrorizes his classmates and extorts their lunch money. Refusing to pay up, Clifford enlists the aid of an overgrown misfit (Adam Baldwin, Full Metal Jacket) whose mere presence intimidates students and teachers alike. But their "business relationship" soon turns personal as Clifford and the troubled loner forge a winning alliance against their intimidators - and a very special friendship with each other.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie has violence, sexual innuendo, and some less-than-sterling behavioral examples. A bigger guy is always threatening a smaller one. The conflict culminates in a final vicious fight between the two bodyguards and the two leads. There is occasional mild profanity and an obscene finger gesture. Cliff and his Dad peek at girls through a telescope. One brief, naked male rear in a locker room. Though subtly played, Dad is obviously sleeping with a visiting flight attendant. It is implied that Grandma, a heavy drinker, is also a sex fiend. She sits in the bar of the family's hotel drinking and propositioning any hapless man who wanders in. On the other hand, the movie also effectively addresses themes of difference, frienship, and looking beyond stereotypes.
