About the Movie
Four small-town friends face an uncertain future in this acclaimed comedy that evokes the best of Diner and American Graffiti. Keller (Breckin Meyer) has wanted to leave Dancer, Texas since he was a child. At 12 he enlisted his best friends, Squirrel (Ethan Embry), Terrell Lee (Peter Facinelli) and John (Eddie Mills), in a solemn oath that they would all ditch Dancer after high school graduation. But when the boys gather on graduation night, each finds his own reasons to reconsider their vow. A charming work that never rings a false note.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Tim McCanlies' charming feature directorial debut evokes the spirit of Capra's Depression comedies and Thornton Wilder's Our Town, without the nostalgia or sentimentality of those works.
Classic Small Town Movie
Excellent feel-good small town movie. If you've never spent much time in a small town don't bother with this movie. But if you grew up in a town where the nearest shopping mall was over 100 miles away (whether you escaped to the city or spent your whole life living in the same town) it may become your favorite movie.
It's a great movie about small town life, and the desire of virtually everyone who's grown up in a small town to get the heck out of there and never look back. But to quote one of the characters, "Some folks don't belong in a small town, but some don't belong anywhere else."

If you grew up in a small rural community, it's a trip down memory lane. You will probably find a character in the movie to match one in your hometown.
If you grew up in the complete opposite of above it is a very insightful look into the thoughts and minds of adolecents who were a word away from you and their way of life.
