Across the Tracks-1991, starring Rick Schroeder and Brad Pitt
Maltin says- Reasonably compelling teen sports drama with Schroeder returning from reform school stint to compete on high school track team and outperforming straight-A track star brother (Pitt). Realistic portrayal of teen problems and aspirations make this best suited for young people, although the R rating (for normal raunchy high school language) may make this film inaccessible to its key audience. 2 and a half stars.
I say- This has to be the most unintentionally hysterical movie ever. First off, this movie does not deal with realistic high school problems. The drug dealer looks like Stifler from American Pie. The dialogue is absurd, Brad Pitt is billed second, and the clothes are horrendous. Random windsurfers enter shots. Lines such as "Let's do it to it," and "stomp out that fire," are said in COMPLETE seriousness. Watch this drunk, as it's the worst movie ever made and the best movie ever made. 3 and a half stars.
