Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Subscribes wholeheartedly to the history-as-pornography school of thinking, in which all will be revealed if you can figure out who is sleeping with whom, when and where and what they do in bed.
Rotten: The title sums up the bland, unimaginative and cliche-laden thriller/coming-of-age tale.
Rotten: The Cuban Missile Crisis is a year passed and the assassination is looming, and yet Adam's pubescent crises are given Wagnerian emphasis.
Rotten: There are scenes that work here and there, but regrettably not nearly enough to hold the film together. In the end, this affair is definitely not one to remember.
Why am I the only one
This movie is great why I'm I the only one to make a comment?
This movie was terrible!
From bad acting (Noah Wylie perhaps the only exception), this movie with it's implausible plot, one-dimensional acting, less than sympathetic acting and limited talent in terms of the direction really stank. The only thing going for it was the music by Dustin Halloran. I actually rented it by mistake, thinking I was purchasing the soundtrack, so decided to watch it. Total waste of my time.
Great acting and good plot
