5.0 out of 5 stars Across the Tracks rules! January 25, 2000
By Melissa
Format:VHS Tape
Though this movie is slightly cheesy, and obviously neither Brad nor Ricky's best work, it is very entertaining nonetheless. Brad Pitt as a track star...need I say any more? And Ricky Schroeder as a troubled youth looking to make a fresh start...brilliant. The best part of the movie is the drunk scene (if you watch it you'll know what I mean), which can be reenacted over and over with your friends for hours and hours of guaranteed hilarity. A must see, and one of my favorites!

3.0 out of 5 stars Clap if you like Brad and Rick. April 7, 2008
Sandy Tung's "Across the Tracks" is exactly what I expected: a standard-issue teen angst movie, neither great nor terrible, and worth seeing strictly for its two stars. The story concerns two brothers from a poor background, both high-school track runners. Joe (Brad Pitt) is an overachieving straight arrow starting to crack from the strain, and Billy (Rick Schroder) is a juvenile delinquent trying desperately to go straight. There is no situation in the movie that you don't see coming from about 200 miles away, and writer-director Tung has a bad habit of changing the characters' basic personality traits to fit the action. (Also, the sound track, consisting mostly of second-rate heavy metal, is beyond annoying.) But the movie rests squarely on the shoulders of Pitt and Schroder, and fortunately they can bear the weight. They're both extremely easy to look at, they're convincingly athletic in their running scenes, they're believable as brothers and they both give nice, clean acting jobs, as good as the material allows. "Across the Tracks" isn't exactly a must-see, but it's a painless and interesting look at Pitt just before "Thelma and Louise" made him a household name, and also at Schroder right after "Lonesome Dove."

5.0 out of 5 stars Low budget and poorly produced but still a great film January 13, 2008
The film starts off feeling like a bad Lifetime movie. It has a sort of after school special feel to it. It's low budget, not very skillful in its direction, and Pitt is still developing his craft. He's not yet at his best. Despite all this, the further you get into the film the more involving it becomes. I loved this film.
There is a lot of depth to the relationship between the two brothers and besides Without Limits this is the best track film that I have ever seen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Memories Relived!!! March 15, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I remembered watching this movie back in the early 90's!! It's a Great Movie, Brad Pitt has come a long way since "Across the Tracks" He delivered a good performance! It's always good to see Rick Schroder appear in a Movie, He too did the movie Justice!.. A classic Drama about brotherhood, it is worth watching again!

2.0 out of 5 stars Brad Pitt February 11, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
not a great movie, but fun to look at Brad so young, yet not so young playing a 17 year old and he is actually closer to 27

3.0 out of 5 stars Young Pitt and Schroder July 2, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The movie itself was okay-nothing complicated or hard to follow. It is funny seeing Schroder and Pitt at such a young age. Their acting was okay considering the script left something to be desired. The music was horrendous but typical of the times (lol) and the volume was really low. It will stay in my collection of Pitt movies.

1.0 out of 5 stars Needs a REDO May 21, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is one of the WORST transfers of a film to DVD I have ever seen. And I have a massive collection of DVDs, so I know from whence I write.

My DVR recording of the same title from cable TV looks better than the DVD, so it looks like I will be transferring that version to DVD and saving it in my expensive new DVD case . . . with artwork, of course.

Hey, I suppose I should be grateful that, at least, it's widescreen.
