Wanting to be heroes in each others' and their hometown's eyes, they set out on an unforgettable two-day trek that turns into an odyssey of self-discovery. When they encounter the town's knife-wielding hoods who are also after the body, the boys discover a strength they never knew they had...

This classic coming of age movie, based on Steven kings novel The Body, has to be one of the best movies ever made. The film resonates so much with us in our mid 30's due to the fact that we were at a similar age of the actors when the film was released, and the issues of what was important to the kids in the film were very similar to ours. The film brings back the memories of the long hot summer days you used to spend with your best friends. and the hard truth that is, best friends do drift apart, but are never forgotten, and no matter what, you never have friends like the ones you had when you were a kid.
But the film has a real emotional punch with the final revalation, made even more poingnant by the death of River Phoenix in 1994, as it was a devasting loss of a seriouse talent.
The film is a perfect reminder of our youth, but also a reminder of when we first started to see the world with more adult eyes.
Just a perfect film!

 Simple Tale Brilliantly Told

Stephen King's name is synonimous with horror stories and movies yet some of the best films that have been made from his stories are anything but. Along with The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile, Stand By Me is a simple, sensitive and moving story of four lads who decide they want to find a dead body for something to do during their summer holidays. That's it thats the plot, but the genious of King is that he draws you in with his characterisations and small subplots. The whole film is brilliantly held together by 4 teenagers with outstanding performances from River Phoenix and Cory Feldman. There are no special effects, CGI, complicated stunts or loud spectacular explosions. There are two reasons why this film works so well, a well written story and excellent acting. The original story was called The Body, they changed the title to Stand By Me after Ben E King's song that featured as the movies soundtrack, which was perfect for it.

I bought Stand By Me last week because several people recommended it to me and said it was brilliant. They weren't wrong; it's easily one of the best films I've ever seen.

And for a fiver, it's really a must-have DVD. I seriously recommend this film to anybody. :)
