Cliche ridden high school sports melodrama which
cemented Tom Cruise's place as an up-and-coming box office star and gave cinematographer Michael Chapman his directorial debut.
Cruise plays Stefen, a teen growing up in a small
Pennsylvania town where male residents go to work in the factories if they aren't talented enough to go to university on a football scholarship. It's kind of obvious what path Stef
wants to choose.
For die hard Tom Cruise fans or American Football
lovers only, for everyone else it doesn't really offer much.
