Directed and co-written by Rob Reiner - returning to modest production values after a long string of big-budget efforts - this comedy-drama boasts appealing performances by Madeline Carroll and Callan McAuliffe as long-acquainted youngsters whose feelings for one another take big turns as they get a bit older.
The youthful stars are backed by a fine, experienced cast that includes Rebecca De Mornay and Anthony Edwards as the boy's parents, and Penelope Ann Miller and Aidan Quinn as the girl's elders; John Mahoney ("Frasier") also appears. DVD extra: "making-of" documentary. *** (PG: AS, P) (Also on Blu-ray)
