Movie Reviews

Philadelphia Daily News - 10/10 by Joe Baltake It is about the evolution of a writer, his relationship with his three closest friends and a situation that formed his talent -- and morbid fascination.
Radio Times - 10/10 by Andrew Collins Rob Reiner's bucolic, nostalgic drama is widely agreed to be one of the most successful adaptations of a story by horror master Stephen King.
Cinemaphile.org - 10/10 by David Keyes When you are an adventure-seeker stuck in that odd transition between early youth and adolescence, few movies resonate more than "Stand by Me."
Groucho Reviews - 9/10 by Peter Canavese Exquisitely captures the vulnerability not only of youth, but of the male identity.
Los Angeles Times - 9/10 by Sheila Benson It stands, sweet and strong, ribald, outrageous and funny, like its heroes themselves -- a bit gamy around the edges, perhaps, but pure and fine clear through. It's one of those treasures absolutely not to be missed.
IGN DVD - 9/10 by R. L. Shaffer A near-perfect coming-of-age story peppered with regret, pain, nostalgia and love.
Variety - 8/10 by Variety Staff Scripters have written inspired dialog for this quartet of plucky boys at that hard-to-capture age when they're still young enough to get scared and yet old enough to want to sneak smokes and cuss.
Orlando Sentinel - 8/10 by Jay Boyar Its perspective is that of a knowing adult, which is to say that though the film is frequently affectionate and funny, it contains a drop too much condescension to be entirely successful.
Chicago Reader - 8/10 by Pat Graham Reiner seems lost in his own cinematic wilderness -- button-down careful, almost afraid to move
Entertainment Weekly - 6/10 by Chris Nashawaty Good luck choking back the tears, folks.
Chicago Tribune - 6/10 by Dave Kehr Stand by Me is a film of honorable ambitions severely compromised by a creeping show-biz phoniness.
