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

Its a decent movie. I mainly like it because it brings back memories of my childhood in st.paul. It shows many areas that have changed over the years. Plus its an 80s movie with Emilio, if you grew up in this era it might bring memories to you as well. I have never read the book so as the movie stands its alright. Its a must see if you are familiar with the eastside of saint paul in the 80s. Luckily they produced this on dvd again, its been 10 years since you could by this. Enjoy

Although it didn't follow the book completely, still a good movie. If you can get over the "it's not exactly like the book" you'll love it. With a little over acting on some character's parts, but over all good movie and worth the buy.

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.

If you're using this for school to supplement the book, beware. There is a lot of cursing in this movie. Emilio Estevez drops the F-bomb a lot. I really don't think it did the book justice. The book is during the 60's and the Vietnam War, this takes place in the 80's. If I hadn't read the book the movie would be, okay. I really didn't care for it, but my students thought it was funny seeing the weird hair styles and clothes.

This movie was ok. It was definitely not as good as the book. The only reason why the movie carries like it does is because of the acting. If it were not for the acting, this movie would tank compleely.

I was disappointed that I couldn't find this movie anywhere, but thankful I could at least get a DVD version. I've always thought it was highly underrated and was pleased to see my thoughts hasn't changed. Great movie with great acting.

This story is written surprisingly well written by a teenager for teenagers. She speaks their language, a language that is understood by every generation. A great coming of age story. I got it for my grandson. The movie follows the book closely. The young actors became big names in Hollywood.

Emilio Esteves, besides Matt Dillon, is my favorite 80's bad boy. A basic high school movie about two teen friends. One in a life of crime, the other trying to get out of that kind of life. You know the story. But the movie and writing itself keeps your eyes on the TV. And who better than S>E> Hinton to write this story?
