The film opens during a game of flag football as we meet the principle players in Kenny (McCann) and his best friend Doug (Baldwin). The story is not so much laid out like that in a typical film, as there's not much of a plot, but mainly relates a series of occurrences taking place in the four days leading up to one of the most anticipated events in a child's life in that of Halloween. It's a world of soap box racers, banana seat bicycles, skateboards, cherry bombs, pranks, homemade Halloween costumes, bullies, first crushes, pellet guns, and so on...the film takes place in what appears to be southern California, but if you grew up in the 70's, you'll probably find a lot you can relate to, that is if you weren't that unlucky boy in the bubble (I think his name was John Travolta). If you didn't, there will be specifics in here may seem strange or odd, but many of the overall themes are universal enough to appeal to any generation (friendship, sticking together, standing up to bullies, etc).Read more ›
First off, kudos to Anchor Bay for releasing so many lost gems like this one.
After having only viewed the movie once, many years ago as a child, frankly I wasn't expecting a whole lot out of this movie the second time around as an adult. WOW-- was I in for a special, pleasant surprise.
Kenny and Company is a movie that will always be very close to my heart. Basically, it deals with a 12-year old boy and his growing up in suburban southern California. It is a loving and loveable ode to the wonder and pure excitement of being a kid learning about life.
I know of no other movie that comes close to capturing the spirit of a young boy. The casting is flawless, and all the child actors are superb. I believe Coscarelli's use of narration is done with great effect. The movie is well-paced, and casts a wonderful light on a very special time in life for most boys.
Don McCann plays Kenny, and he is perfectly cast as the wide-eyed, all American mischievous boy. He has a good heart and it shows. His best friend Greg, played by Michael Baldwin, is that same kid that all of us knew when we were growing up... bold, mischievous, smart, and good at everything. He was the kid that we envied a little because he was so good at everything, but he was also a good friend.Read more ›
