Solid coming-of-age film that surprisingly stands up pretty well over thirty years later. Chris Makepeace plays a young man who comes up with the idea of hiring a bodyguard to overcome his persecution by the local bully before eventually having to confront his problems himself. A showcase for the young Adam Baldwin and Matt Dillon with very early roles for Joan Cusack and Jennifer Beals. Still quite stirring.
