Editorial Reviews

Experience Disney's poignant coming-of-age tale based on the best-selling novel by S.E. Hinton. For Tex McCormick (Matt Dillon) and older brother Mason, just growing up is the ultimate adventure, especially when Dad is always gone, Mom has passed on, and life is dealing you one challenge after another. Times are so tough, brother Mason has to sell off Tex's favorite horse just to put food on the table. So begins the small-town saga of one teen's straightforward struggle to find friendship, love, and family -- and learning that growing up is about never giving up.

Customer Reviews

This film is a pretty adaptation of the book by S.E. Hinton.

A good story of growing up and dealing with real-life situations and the consequences of decision-making.
BJW
This is one of the best movies from the early 80's regarding Disney Studios.

What a great film this was- there was good acting, a good script, unexpected moments of hilarity- and best of all this film stayed close to the book. Many of the characters' lines in the movie are directly from the book. If you are fan of S.E. Hinton and her writings, you won't be disappointed by it. In my mind, "Tex" was even better than "The Outsiders," at least in terms of the movies.
Matt Dillon is superb as Texas McCormick, a quiet, somewhat immature teenager living in Oklahoma, the usual setting for Hinton's books. There are few moments in the film (don't worry, I won't give them away) that were extremely funny. However, not only is the humor entertaining in the movie, but the drama is well done too. Tex faces changes at home, with his friends Johnny and Jamie, and at school, and the result makes for a captivating story line.
The selection for the supporting cast is right on in almost every case- Jim Metzler plays Tex's brother Mason, who has to tend for his younger brother while also looking ahead to college and his own future. Emilio Estevez is Tex's spunky friend Johnny and Meg Tilly is Johnny's independent-minded sister Jamie, the object of Tex's affections.
Even the filming and quality of the movie is not bad, considering that it was made two decades ago. The music is usually fitting in each scene, and the script came off sounding realistic and genuine. All in all, this is a movie well worth checking out. I think the only thing wrong with this movie is the rating it received; there's probably enough swearing in this movie to have earned it a PG-13 rating. Highly recommended.

Being from and still living in Tulsa, Ok, I had this movie on vhs which over the years couldn't watch anymore. This movie is pretty much the way I grew up, except about 10 years before their time. There are scenes in the movie of landmarks that used to here in Tulsa and have since been forced to be torn down, which one was Bell's amusement shown at the fair. Now the fairgrounds is still their but it's not the same. There was a scene at a mall which over the years has grown bigger ad not the same. And last of all the Camelot hotel which looked like a castle, which at one time was really a luxury hotel where many famous people stayed, and it was really sad to me to see it being torn down, but thanks to films the memories of times gone by well never fade. As also the outsiders filmed here with the drive in movie with the grace of everything going for it, it is still there. But in my opinion these may not be movies for the rich and famous that don't understand what life could have been like as it is portayed in the movie, it does happen, and seeing Matt Dillon, Emilio Estevez and Meg Tilly in their younger days and actually being here when these movies were made makes an Okie boy proud!

I recently purchased this movie after rereading my copy of TEX for probably the millionth time or so. The movie is an excellent version of the story...great for children for the most part. I recommend highly.

I read the book so desided to rent the movie. I was so glad I did. If you have not seen the movie, see it. But read the book first. Then you get the real feel for the movie. Matt Dillon is goregous in the movie! All those actors are big stars today, like Matt Dillon, Emilio Estevez. The others did good too. If you have seen The Ousiders and liked it, you will like Tex also. I never regeret watching it. I enjoyed every moment of the movie. It is a little different from the book. But it follows the same guidelines.
