Editorial Reviews

Vin Diesel in his directorial debut "Strays" takes a hard look at his own adolescence and upbringing in New York City. Rick (Vin Diesel) is a "stray" – raised on the streets, lacking a traditional family structure and wrestling subconsciously with his father’s absence. When he meets Heather, he sees the opportunity for a meaningful relationship and an escape from a world of drug dealing and street hustling. Trying to assimilate into Heather’s world will not be easy as Rick struggles to overcome the perception that he is turning his back on his old neighborhood and friends. Though the chemistry between the couple is immediately charged, Rick’s street manner and volatile aggression, threaten to extinguish their relationship before it begins.

Special Features

None.

Wow, this movie was better than I expected. I thought it was going to be all about drug dealing and street thugs with a little romance in the mix. But I found it to be a romance story with a little street life in the mix. I found the character of Rick (Vin Diesel) to be very vulnerable and needing something more in life. He just wants to be loved, truely loved. Not just for the way he looks or acts but for who he is when he stands alone. I think the story shows that Vin can really embrace the role of a character who is romantic, and I hope to see more of him in these type of roles. Overall a great life changing movie and I was still thinking about some of the lines several days after watching the movie, so watch and enjoy.

This is a must see for any true Vin fans out there. It truly shows him in a new light.

His life, up until this point has been about sex, drugs, women, and beer along with his 'brothers' and friend.

They all grew up with out their fathers in their lives and it seems that the only thing they have is each other.

"Rick" is the oldest of the group and it seems he's the only one that has some responsibility and vision for the future. He's ready to grow up and leave his slutty ways behind.

He wants to fall in love and he knows that after so many women in his bed, that's it's going to be hard to find a special woman because, they are too innocent and pure for someone like him to touch and bring down.

He's a low level drug dealer and he "Doesn't do this for a living" but for some extra cash... though they never show any of them doing a REAL job and they never tell you what that job is.

It's all lies, especially out of "Tony's" mouth. He'll say anything or do anything to hook up with a woman and he had no remorse. He finds it funny when he ends up catching something but Rick flips on him. Finally, well hopefully making the others in their group see the light.

This is a very gritty, dirty and crass film. It is not for the family. It is unrated but it is about an NC-17.

If you only want to see the sweet Pacifier side of Vin, then don't bother with this. If you want to see what it was like growing up in NY in the mid 90 for a bunch of go no-wheres. If you want to see the intelligence and seamless conversations, albeit vulgar conversations, between true friends then get this.

Vin has so much talent and only a small part of that is show here.

Format: DVD
STRAYS (or DOORMEN as his script was initially titled) marks the entry of Vin Diesel (AKA Mark Sinclair Vincent) into the film world in a very small budget (under $50,000.), independent 1997 movie he wrote, directed and acted the major role. To appreciate this very realistic, modest, slice of New York life the film presents, it helps to watch the features added to the DVD (the film is released to the public for the first time): interviews with the cast and with Diesel give a sensitive and heartwarming background that enhances the movie experience. Though Diesel studied acting and worked in theater in New York prior to this film, it was not until he made his own film that he captured the attention of the people who make things happen. And now that Vin Diesel is a major Hollywood presence it is fascinating to see this initial opener.

The plot is simple enough: Rick (Diesel) is a minor drug dealer who also works as a bouncer with his buddy Tony (F. Valentino Morales), and hangs with Fred (Joey Dedio) and his 'brother' (Mike Epps, in his first role in film). The guys live mainly for easy sex and camaraderie - all of the have been raised by mothers without knowing their fathers (thus, are 'strays'). As Rick matures he grows tired of his shallow lifestyle, misses the connection with his mother he never developed, and is prime bait for a relationship. Into his life steps Heather (Suzanne Lanza), a wholesome Midwestern girl, the two have a mutual attraction, but as their courtship dance progresses Heather disapproves of Rick's at times gang-like behavior and his drug dealing. They come together in an extended park bench conversation (excellent writing) during which they realize they each have repairs to do on their previous lives before they can enter a serious relationship.

I have talked about this movie for years. It is the most fabulously ridiculous thing I have EVER seen! I need to share with you the highlights that make it so.

1. Old lady walks outside and hears a cat meow. We don't see the beast that made this mildly aggressive sound but we see the old lady's eyes widen with terror as though she were being attacked by a polar bear and then, cut to black.

2. A family is driving down the road when all of a sudden a cat jumps on their windshield and bounces off. Despite weighing, at most, 8 or 9 pounds, the force of the impact is enough to send the car ricocheting off the road and into a ditch, as though struck by a boulder.

3. Phone repair guy goes down into a basement and we hear that same barely-attention-worthy growl and we see...a dirty cat. For some reason this cat strikes fear into the phone guy's heart to such an extent that he flails about in hysterics running into a wall and falling to the ground. From there, about 6 other cats jump on him, walk around a little, and somehow the trauma of their tiny paws must rupture his internal organs or something cause he dies.

4. Family from #2 calls a tow truck to pull their CAR out of the DITCH. The tow truck instead comes to their HOUSE (not a ditch) and finds the phone guy's TRUCK (not a car) and proceeds to tow it away. This is despite the fact that it's appropriately parked in the driveway.

5. Now the true horror begins. The cats finally attack the family! Mom comes into the room to see her daughter's crib/bed overflowing with cats, presumably with her daughter underneath! She runs to the bed and starts flinging them away as though they were nothing more than...cats?

6. After clearing the bed, mom realizes her daughter is in the closet.
