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.|With TEX, the Studio was trying to reach a new generation of teens who preferred more "realistic" live action movies. It's one of the few Disney films with a PG rating.

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.

My 5-star rating is based on: The DVD playing quality is great (for a standard quality DVD), and the DVD is very well-packaged.
Additional comments: My seventh grade class read the novel, Tex, by S.E. Hinton. I am not allowed to show movies at my school unless they are G or PG rated. For this reason, I am unable to show most companion movies to the books we read. This movie is rated PG, so as a treat I showed the movie in class. I was hesitant because it is 113 minutes long, so I needed 3 class periods to show it. The kids liked it, but it is the only movie I have ever shown in class, so that alone may be why. The movie events line up fairly well with the story events from the book, with the most notable change being the age of Tex. In the book Tex is 14 and turns 15 within the story and Jamie is only in 7th grade. In the movie Tex turns 16, and they are both in high school. Students agreed that the way they visualized the story events made them very different due to this one change. The movie is set and filmed in the early 80s. My class really had some good discussions about how life was different for their parents growing up compared to themselves growing up today--everything from clothes and daily routines to how technology has changed the way bullying and pressures can happen today.

I've read the book, and really enjoyed that. So I tried to movie...................
IT WAS AMAZING. It lived up to the book, went by the book, well expect for one scene. Just the car scene between two characters. It didn't escalate that far. Not that it went far, it is a pretty kid friendly movie, besides the part of one of the characters having a hangover. Anyways, it was a very good movie. Oh yeah. The product arrived on time and was in perfect condition.
Yeah.
(awkwardly backs away) if you have any questions feel free to ask.

Great story of two teens struggling on their little ranch without parents. Trouble follows Dillon which in part reminds me of the movie "The Outsiders" which is a great movie with a lot of young kids that we all watched grow up in films. Good movie at a good Amazon price.

... you really can't go wrong. If you aren't a fan of S.E. Hinton you may not appreciate this movie.
It's a very low budget feel and the story is no different from the rest of her stories.
Her collection of material will sadly be overshadowed by the Outsiders. Don't compare this movie to that one. You won't be doing yourself a favor.

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.
