The movie was bland, and seems like a lifetime network movie reject, but yet it has an undeniable edge, because of the ending, and also the actors in the movie. rachel blanchard and dj qualls elevated this movie to five stars because of their superb acing abilities.

This is a wonderful Coming of Age movie for young people age 13-17. The film is not some silly runaway to NYC story. It tells the good the bad and the ugly about the life of these 2 teens and how they met and their adventures. Rachel Blanchard as usual is cute as a button in this movie.

Random rentals are a 50/50 bet for me as to whether they'll be engagingly watchable and this one was in the good 50. It's not an amazingly solid script but it's effective as a "me and you against the world" type thing.

Often unfairly derided, and having nothing to do with anything by Kevin Smith (let's get that right out of the way right here), Chasing Holden is a very strange movie which is hard to categorize.

Neil Lawrence is the delinquent son of the governor of New York. Fancying himself a teenage rebel, Neil clashes with his father and is obsessed with the novel The Catcher in the Rye, in particular identifying heavily with Holden Caulfield and idolizing author J.D. Salinger. At his prep school, Neil meets cute kleptomaniac blonde coed T.J., and the two equally "weird" kids hit it off instantly. Things being to go wrong for Neil when his professor assigns him to write an essay about what he thinks happened to Holden Caulfield after the ending of The Catcher in the Rye.

Neil is horrified. To him, it's like he is adding his own chapter to a literary classic, and not just any classic, but one he lives and swears by. Unable to do it he attempts to write J.D. Salinger to ask permission to write the essay, figuring if the author says it's okay then he can do it. When the reclusive Salinger refuses to write him back, though, Neil decides to go and see Salinger personally and force him to talk to him. He takes T.J. with him, promising her it'll be a great road trip. But what T.J. doesn't realize until later is that Neil stole a Luger from the dean's gun collection. She begins to wonder just what he's planning on doing with it once he finally meets Salinger.
