This is one of the outstanding films of the 1980s. Few films capture Ameican boyhood in the 1950s as well as this one. One boy, Vern the plump kid, was on the Carson show in 1986. It seems him and his friends had been up to a lot of pranks in the hotel they stayed at. One night even draining the hotel swimming pool. The boy was very embarrassed that he had been found out. It was based on a Steven King short story, titled “The Body”. It may well be director, Rob Reiner’s very best film.
