Product Description

In THAT WAS THEN…THIS IS NOW, Emilio Estevez stars as Mark Jennings, a delinquent teenager who becomes overly jealous when his brother-like figure and best friend, Byron (Sheffer), gets a girlfriend (Delaney) and tries to abandon his old, bad boy ways. Already feeling alienated after being orphaned when his father killed his mother during a violently heated argument, Mark becomes jealous of Brian’s new relationship and gets himself involved with drugs as a result. When Mark and Brian’s mentor, Charlie Woods (Freeman), is killed, and when Byron’s girlfriend’s little brother is reported missing with Mark seeming to have more clues to his whereabouts than anyone else, their world changes even more as the boys’ friendship is put to the ultimate test.

From the Back Cover

Emilio Estevez and Craig Sheffer light up the screen in this exciting drama about the delicate balance of teenage friendship.

"That Was Then...This Is Now" tells the story of two boys raised as brothers who take on the challenges of the street with equal determination. They're an inseparable, unstoppable team about that's about to face the first barrier they can't knock down...the pressure of manhood.

"That Was Then...This Is Now" is based on the best-selling novel by S.E. Hinton, author of "Tex" and "The Outsiders," and "Rumble Fish."

I rented this movie out of curiousity one day and thought it was great. It deals with many issues that face teens and the ending will leave you thinking.

I bought this DVD a few weeks back for an inflated price so I could see and own one of my favorite movies from when I was growing up. The movie is excellent and I had not seen it in 15+ yrs so i could not remember much about it when I seen it. I did realize a couple of things about the film vs book when I watched it though. WARNING Potential Spoilers

The ending had an exceptionally strong "War on Drugs in the 80's" ending, as Bryon exiled his lifelong friend over one incident with drugs. Rather than trying to reach out to him, he wrote him off like he never existed and had his butt thrown in jail. WTF? Like anyone would do that to someone they cared so much about. Also, finally, for the people who complained that Ponyboy Curtis did not make an appearance in the That Was Then, This Is Now movie like he did with the book need to open thier eyes. He is the blond haired kid at the dance hanging out with Mark. Although he has no lines, he is plain as day in the scene at the dance inside the school and out in the parking lot before, during, and after the fight Angela Shepards friend. He is wearing the bright yellow jacket...you cannot miss him.

Anyhow, this is an excellent film and any fan of SE Hinton, the Outsiders, or 1980's movies should appeciate it, if you can find a copy you are willing to pay the price for.

Format: DVD
This film was inspired and is partly based on the S.E. Hinton novel of the same title. However, a modicum of research will tell you that Emilio Estevez wrote the screenplay, not Hinton. Ergo, do NOT expect it to be exactly like the book. Film is one medium, literature is another. To compare them is odious and unfair to both.
Estevez and Sheffer both do a decent job in this emotional story of two young men who go from inseparable to at odds with one another as they begin to drift apart. Estevez wants everything to stay the same: hanging out, slacking off and committing petty crime. The bad boy image and ways will take them nowhere good, and the film's tension comes from Brian (Sheffer)learning this with help from his new girlfriend (Kim Delaney) and trying to leave it behind while Mark fights the idea only to end up a drug-damaged reprobate with a dismal future.

This was the last S.E. Hinton book to be made into a movie. Of course the book was better, but that goes without saying (for most films). Two very close teens, Mark, and Bryon live together with Bryon's mom. Mark's parents killed each other in a fight when Mark was a child. Bryon grows to maturity, and Mark wants to hold on to the good ol' days. Bryon gets a girlfriend and things look serious. Mark get's jealous and resentful. Mark turns to drug dealing, and deals some drugs to Bryon's girlfriend's brother, M&M. M&M loses his mind and is drugged out in a hippie type drug house. Things get heated between these two brothers, and Bryon is faced with a life changing decision. Good coming of age drama. Emilio Estevez wrote the screenplay to the Hinton book, but,unlike the other projects, she had nothing to do with the making of this movie. Morgan Freeman plays a very "cool" bartender in this movie.

Format: VHS Tape Verified Purchase
Well,I was disappointed to say the least. I bought this movie because I had read the book with my 7th grade reading class. There was NO WAY I could show this movie to them. I knew it had a R rating but figured I would take the chance. Besides all the profanity, the movie DID NOT follow S.E. Hinton's story line. Emilio Estevez (he wrote the screen play ) defiated from it in so many ways. There are too many to list now. Even the ending was totally NOT the book. The character of Mark was played by Emilio and he "over acted" big time. I was not impressed by him. Kim Delaney is a great actress but the character of "Cathy" was NOT as protrayed in the book. The character of Bryon was by far the closest of all of the characters. Oh, and the character of Charlie....it was played by Morgan Freeman. Need I say more? This is definitely the movie that upholds the cliche'....THE BOOK IS SO MUCH BETTER THAN THE MOVIE!!!!!!!! I say...don't waste the [money], like I did!

Hello, I usually try and stay at least semi business professional when dealing with things on here. I however can't with good sense say nothing about the ridiculously over priced and outrageous value placed on a movie rated class c. I liked the movie when I was younger and get enjoyment watching it in all it's cool kid wonder, but unless it comes with estevez himself autographing it there is no way in heavens creation someone would be dimwitted enough to pay even remotely what is being asked for this movie. that can be watched free all over the internet or found in your local movie dealers store like buybacks or a pawn shop. Serious, what are we thinking here. bad enough that things and economics are what they are without getting ripped off on the simple pleasurres as well. Rethink or remove this item that should be valued properly around $5.00 - $7.50. Remember like it or not dvd is becoming obsolete and this will be released on blu-ray soon. So be reasonable!

I love this movie and think that it is a good film, all things considered. I would love to add it to my collection of thousands of movies. But in a realistic tone, it put simply is over priced, way over priced. I am constantly gathering movies from this time era and I can say that this and one other I have searched for are the most outrageously priced. 10$ would be top rate price all things being considered especially in todays society and economic crunch.I think it is a great movie and doesn't deserve the negative reviews it recieved. I just think the price is ridiculous. I am sure we could find it in some shop for 5 bucks like we do with so many others. or watch for free online if necessary. I would rather not, but this is why people do that. I understand the reasoning behind it, but it is unrealistic and out of line. THAT WAS THEN THIS IS NOW is good movie, not 40 or 70 $ movie however.
