The soundtrack is brilliant and adds to the film's pace and feeling.
Max
This movie reminded me of "Stand by me" because the way the children acted with each other and some of the lines and plots were very similar.
R. Snowden
You believe in the strength of their friendship, and that the bond they share will withstand anything.

At this time of movies with huge budgets & special effects comes along a movie made for the whole family. My kids saw it & when their friends come over, they sit & watch it over & over again. As a parent, you don't have to worry. With the movie being set in the early 80's, the movie does a good job of capturing 1980 & it brings me back to the days when I was a rebel as a kid.

At a time when our world is upside down and our children have absolutely no sense of true friendship, loyalty, committment, and redemptiveness, Hollywood just keeps spitting out the same trash. But writer/director Jim Fleigner's film Rounding First takes all those worthy charateristics listed above and offers us an opportunity to remember what they really mean and how desperately we need to teach our children about them. Rounding First is a film Frank Capra would be proud of. It allows adults to remember, their children to peek into the past, and compels all of us to call all our dearest friends and tell them we love them. Each one of us is represented in the three main characters. And all of us will recall how the hard lessons of life shaped our character the most. It's refreshing to be able to sit down with the whole entire family and watch a movie again. This will remain a valuable part of my movie collection. Thank you Mr. Fleigner, thank you very, very much.

"Rounding First" is not your usual kid's film. Without giving away the plot it deals with complex family issues. 3 preteens set out on a quest to find out why the parents are lying to them about something. The journey is a strange and eventful trip. Two of the young actors, Soren Fulton and Matt Borish give great preformances. I give this film a high rating as suggest it for both kids and parents.

Sincerely

Geoffrey A McGeoch

Me and my family love this film, its one of the best! I am 24 years old and I could feel like I was one of the boys when I was younger. BUY IT TODAY! Best regards, Robert in Sweden

This movie was really great because it really shows how children grow up and the different things they go threw as preteens. This movie reminded me of "Stand by me" because the way the children acted with each other and some of the lines and plots were very similar. So if you really like "Stand by me" then you will really love "Rounding first". Rounding First will be added to my favorate movies of all time. Also if you liked "Josh and S.A.M you will like this movie also. Great for all ages.

As the mother of three small boys, I am thrilled to find a movie as refreshing as Rounding First. It is everything you want in a movie without the violence, nasty words or animation that can be so tiresome. My boys (ages 7, 5 and 4) loved the movie and have been quoting scenes from it since the first time we watched. We watch it every few days and really, really love it!

Format: DVD
This wonderful family film is a combination coming-of-age and buddy / road trip story of three 12-year-old boys who run away from baseball camp to find some elusive truths. When they finally learn what they've been seeking, it's almost too much for two of the friends to bear.

In the spirit of "Stand By Me," Rounding First is a coming-of-age dramedy set in the summer of 1980. Twelve-year olds Joe, Tiger and Chris break out of baseball camp to secretly trail Joe's parents, who have lied to him about a mysterious trip they're taking. The boys must piece together clues, avoid their parents, dodge the police, trust a stranger - and not destroy their friendships in the process - during an adventurous road trip in their last summer before junior high.

The three boys are wonderfully portrayed by Soren Fulton (Joe), Sam Semenza (Chris) and Matt Borish (Tiger). Filmed on location in and around Allentown, Pennsylvania, the boys are very convincing in their roles. The soundtrack is brilliant and adds to the film's pace and feeling. Highly recommended.

"Rounding First" is a unique, original character study which features some beautifully rendered performances by a uniformly impressive cast. A casting director who really knew what they were doing put together an extraordinarily accomplished ensemble featuring a mix of impressive newcomers and veteran players. John Michael Bolger, a fine actor perhaps best known for his strong supporting work on the NBC series "Third Watch", is particularly impressive; fans of daytime drama will also enjoy an unconventional turn by Emmy winner Michael E. Knight, long-running Tad of ABC's "All My Children". some astonishingly accomplished art direction for a film of such modest budget. The use of locations is remarkable, and a genuine period flavor suffuses the entire film. "Rounding First" is a fresh, compelling viewing experience.
