Overview

Small-town America is the key setting for this tale of four West Texas high-school pals who vowed to leave their tiny town after graduation and head for L.A. Keller Breckin Meyer is ready to walk, but his goals are formless. Wealthy Terrell Lee Lusk Peter Facinelli knows his parents Patricia Wettig, Michael O'Neill want him to work in their family oil business. Squirrel Ethan Embry, who lives with his alcoholic father in a rundown trailer, should find escape easy, but he finds reasons to stay, as does John Hemphill Eddie Mills, a young man more suited for life as a rancher. Leaving was something the quartet dreamed about since age 11, but the actual departure requires ripping up some roots. Will they do it? Director Tim McCanlies shot this film in 25 days at Fort Davis, Texas. Shown at the 1998 South by Southwest Film Festival Austin, Texas.

    Not bad

    This isn't too bad a movie, mainly because of the quality of the acting. It's yet another of those films that portrays most people of the southwest as a bunch of ignorant, dirty rednecks living physically in trailers and usually in some sort of broken home, but it's not as loathsome as most movies of the genre. Rent it or buy it from the discount rack.
