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.
Las Vegas Review-Journal - 10/10 by Carol Cling Haunting coming-of-age drama; young River Phoenix's presence adds considerable poignancy
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.
IGN DVD - 9/10 by R. L. Shaffer A near-perfect coming-of-age story peppered with regret, pain, nostalgia and love.
Ozus' World Movie Reviews - 9/10 by Dennis Schwartz A well-observed and executed little film.
ReelViews - 9/10 by James Berardinelli It's as effective in 2009 as it was upon its initial release, and the richness of its tapestry, densely woven from human emotions and character interaction, ensure it will never lose that relevance.
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.
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.
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.
Chicago Reader - 8/10 by Pat Graham Reiner seems lost in his own cinematic wilderness -- button-down careful, almost afraid to move
