Reviews
Mine: Now it is possible that the reason I love this film so much is that I also like bicyling, but it is terrific. As good a coming of age picture as I have ever seen. This is one of those movies that had a big impact on my youth.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Winning, unpretentious film about four college-age friends in Bloomington, Indiana, who don't know what to do with their lives; Dooley stands out in first-rate cast as Christopher's bewildered father. This sleeper hit really comes to life with an audience, may not play as well on TV. Steve Tesich's original screenplay won well-deserved Oscar; later spawned a brief TV series.
