    The movie crosses two formulas -- Fish Out of Water and Coming of Age -- fairly effectively. Because it isn't wall-to-wall action but actually bothers to develop its characters and take an interest in them, it was not at first considered commercial by its distributor, New Line, and languished on the shelf for two years. show more

    Nothing you haven't already seen elsewhere, except for Vin Diesel looking even then like a box-office champ. show more
