Time Out review:
In Reiner's superior slice of teen nostalgia, Dreyfuss is the now
middle-aged writer, looking back at the dear dead days beyond recall
when he and a group of young friends ventured into the local woods where
they believed a corpse was buried. Based on an (apparently)
semi-autobiographical story by Stephen King, the film covers similar
territory to countless other rites-of-passage dramas. The Ben E King
theme song and all the imagery of tousled adolescents preening
themselves like miniature James Deans rekindle memories of old jeans
commercials, but the film is so well-observed and so energetically acted
by its young cast that mawkishness is kept at bay.
Here is the trailer.
