Hailed nationwide by critics, CROSSING THE BRIDGE is an entertaining winner you're sure to enjoy -- starring Josh Charles (DEAD POETS SOCIETY), Stephen Baldwin (BORN ON THE FOURTH OF JULY), and Jason Gedrick (BACKDRAFT). Through thick and thin, Mort, Tim, and Danny were friends. Now they're putting everything on the line with a dangerous drug-smuggling venture promising high-stakes consequences. The trio's about to leave their fun, carefree days behind to face a moment of truth. Their decision will not only determine their freedom, but the future of their lives!

There is one scene in it, where they play mud ball, and the main guy is wearing a nice business suit!

Anyone who grew up in Detroit in the 70's will recognize most of the characters in this movie. This is the story of recent high school graduates who didn't pursue college who are in that void where they are too old to be kids but haven't become responsible adults yet. Their parents still support them. Their time is their own. They fumble around applying their high school values but essentially doing nothing until they happen upon a way to make some big, quick cash, smuggling hashish into the USA. When they get to the pick-up though they find out that the job is actually heroin. (Nicholas Cage is the heroin dealer.) In the process of deciding what to do, and what happens to them when they balk, they discover a lot about themselves and become real adults. Not to ruin the ending but watch the symbolism of the high school varsity jackets.
Shot on location in Detroit and Canada, if you're a suburban Detroiter this is wonderfully nostalgic too.

I really loved this movie. Having been in high school a few years later than this film was set, I found it to be very realistic. I saw a number of personality traits from the three main characters in myself and my friends. We too had an old Buick we cruised around in, and we too came from homes without stability. I recommend this one.

Truly a great movie about 3 young kids coming to age, smuggling drugs across from the Canadian border. Although it is not a blockbuster, it is still a great movie down the line; a Classic one.

A great coming of age movie set in 1975 detroit. 3 high school friends are now graduated with uncertain futures. None went to college and none have decent jobs so they are emotionally caught between adulthood and the high school mentality of living at home. Symbolic of this are the high school letter jackets that two of the friends still wear. Stephen baldwin plays a guy who is losing his identity. He was cool in high school but now as an adult he is just another guy. Mort is the most intellectual and introspective of the three but he knows that he needs to go to college to realize his dream of being a writer. A dream that doesn't recieve much support from his friends. In fact he never shares a scholarship notice from central michigan university with them.

Early in the movie they encounter a drug dealer who offers them $9,000 to run some hashish from canada to the usa. Hence the name of the movie because of the bridge that runs between detroit and windsor ontario. The guys can't help but seriously consider that move. They need the money of course but they need a sense of identity even more. Thankfully the movie doesn't dwell too much on this one event but i'm surprised that these guys never once consider the morality of the action just the potential consequences to them. Other mini sub plots take form in the film of course. Their relationship with uncaring parents and romance. There are the cliche stuck up high school class mates who are now in college. One laughable character is a guy who smugly proclaims that he is majoring in pre law. Any one can major in that and most never go to law school.

Things heat up when the fellas decide finally to do the drug run.

Being a Jason Gedrick fan I purchased this movie hoping it would be as good as some of the reviews indicated. I was not disappointed. A very entertaining movie about a trio of boys who are 3 years beyond HS graduation and are still wearing their letterman's jackets and "cruising" in their notorious HS car called the "war wagon". Interesting and entertaining as you spend a few days with them as they are faced with individual struggles in their lives which brings them to making a life changing decision toward the end which makes them realize it is time to grow up. Highly recommend this movie for anyone who can remember "those days" in their own lives after HS.

There is one scene in it, where they play mud ball, and the main guy is wearing a nice business suit! Too much fun seeing the suit get muddy!

Coming of age movie with emphasis on the results of the decisions we make. Applies to all of us who were indecisive about the future after high school. A good movie with which to reminisce on a cold night.
