An easygoing teenager, Clifford Peach (Chris Makepeace, Meatballs) is finding it less than easy to fit in at his new high school, where a tough-talking bully (Matt Dillon, Rumble Fish) terrorizes his classmates and extorts their lunch money. Refusing to pay up, Clifford enlists the aid of an overgrown misfit (Adam Baldwin, Full Metal Jacket) whose mere presence intimidates students and teachers alike. But their "business relationship" soon turns personal as Clifford and the troubled loner forge a winning alliance against their intimidators - and a very special friendship with each other. Ruth Gordon (Where’s Poppa?), Martin Mull (Mr. Mom), Joan Cusack (Working Girl), Jennifer Beals (Flashdance) and John Houseman (The Paper Chase) round out a truly remarkable cast in this delightful coming-of-age comedy and triumphant tribute to the underdog. Written by Alan Ormsby (Deranged) and directed by Tony Bill (Untamed Heart).
