    So forced and contrived in delivery that it's tedious. That's not good when the intention is to be audacious. show more

    A surprisingly genial and affecting comedy about the trials and tribulations of teenage rebellion during the Reagan '80s. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    [Lillard's] performance dominates the film, and he does a subtle, tricky job of being both an obnoxious punk and a kid in search of his direction in life. He's very good. show more

    this movie defines the late 1980s when punk was on its way out and punk rocker's only way out was the world ending. Matthew Lillard was astonishing as this smart-mouth yet knowledgeable punk rocker. Great movie, great plot, acting all top notch definitely worth getting into. Awesome!!
