His Best Movie Ever

SG Jr wanted to watch The Outsiders after his game yesterday. I wasn't really in the mood for the teen angst genre, but he is too sweet to turn down.

He said a friend of his had said that it was one of Tom Cruise's best movies. Since he is on screen for less than 10 minutes, I have to agree - I've never seen him better

Fun to see all the stars sooooo young. It is a good story, or should I say a good adaptation of a good story, and it is well acted. But, since I can't think of many people in my circle I would recommend it to (and those have probably already seen it) it doesn't score too high on the Word of Mouth scale:

I love The Outsiders and I bought it on DVD a few months back. I remember watching this when I was younger and I was so in love with all those bad boys. It's so dramatic. I think my favorite part was the rumble!

I'm a musical theater girl, so I always expect the rumble to be like in West Side Story, a lot of high kicks and spins - lol. There is a lot to be said, though, for a bunch of young actors rolling around in the mud.....

I forgot to point out that this movie shows a young, buff Patrick Swayse with his shirt off. You could wash your sheets on those abs!
