For Tex McCormick (Matt Dillon) and older brother Mason, just growing up is the ultimate adventure, especially when Dad is always gone, Mom has passed on, and life is dealing you one challenge after another. Times are so tough, brother Mason has to sell off Tex's favorite horse just to put food on the table. So begins the small-town saga of one teen's straightforward struggle to find friendship, love, and family -- and learning that growing up is about never giving up.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: This is a film that accomplishes everything that it attempts, and does so expertly. On its own terms, it is a success through and through.
Rotten: Writers Charlie Haas and Tim Hunter (latter making his directing debut) seem intent on incorporating every conceivable adolescent and adult trauma into their script.
Fresh: There is a shock of recognition almost from the beginning of Tex, because we're listening to the sound of American voices in an authentically American world.
Really great movie. Great actors and interesting plot that kept you entertained the whole time. Not to mention the hot star of the movie Matt Dillon was amazing in his role as Texas McCormick!
Great movie. Also read the book. Reminded me of when i was a teen. The girl, Dirt biking, Horse riding, In trouble with friends and in school. A definite must see.
One of the best, for an 80's boy from OKC!
Litterally filmed down the road from where I grew up, so I might be a little biased. But if you liked the "Outsiders", this will be good.
