My Favorite Movie!!!

on 6/21/2012

Listen, you have to see this movie. In my opinion, it's the best movie ever made! "Stand By Me" stars Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman, Jerry O'Connell, and Kiefer Sutherland. These guys put on the performance of a lifetime. This movie deals with one of the most important things in life... friendship. This movie was directed by Rob Reiner, and was based on the novella "The Body" by Stephen King. Everytime I watch this movie I get a lump in my thoat. This movie will make you laugh, but it could very well make you cry. If you love drama, get "Stand By Me"... Read More

Editors Note
Note Based on Stephen King's novella THE BODY, director Rob Reiner's STAND BY ME is the disarmingly tender and subtly sublime story of four kids on the precipice of early adulthood who embark upon a quest. There's Gordie (Wil Wheaton), the intelligent, creative one with the obviously bright future. His best buddy, Chris (River Phoenix), hardens his image in order to hide the pain from the physical abuse he endures at home, all the while harboring the hope of escaping that image. Rounding out the foursome are Vern (Jerry O'Connell), the pudgy tagalong, and Teddy (Corey Feldman), a loyal and funny but troubled kid with a death wish.^When the four boys hear about a dead body 20 miles down the railroad tracks from their small Oregon town, they clandestinely set upon the unwieldy journey to lay eyes on this rare find. Amid numerous misadventures, Gordie, Chris, Vern, and Teddy savor what may be their last chance to revel in the simple life of children; around the corner is a future that could tear them apart, not to mention a tough teen gang who desires local fame by finding the body first. Enhanced by excellent performances and an engaging plot, STAND BY ME ranks among the best of the myriad coming-of-age films to dot the 1980s cinematic landscape.
Plot Summary

Reviews
Variety "...While Reiner succeeds in building the story around Wheaton's convincing vulnerability, he also has achieved a rare feat of getting equally empathetic and outstanding performances from everyone else in the cast..." 07/30/1986
Los Angeles Times "...A compassionate, perfectly performed look at the real heart of youth. It stands, sweet and strong, ribald, outrageous and funny....It's one of those treasures absolutely not to be missed..." 08/08/1986 p.C1
Total Film "Rob Reiner's evocative rites-of-passager is still memorable for the performances of its four young stars..." 03/01/2001 p.95
Entertainment Weekly "Rob Reiner's film is all about the journey, not the destination. And all of his young actors are great." -- Grade: B 03/25/2011
