- One of the best coming-of-age stories ever made, about the power of friendship and loyalty. A timeless classic.
- Probably one of the best collections of acting from pre-teen actors, especially River Phoenix defining himself as a future star, but who would unfortunatley pass away in 1993 just 7 years after this films release.
- A great story based on the novel "The Body" wriiten by the master Stephen King that everyone can relate to from their childhood.
In a small, woodsy Oregon town, a group of friends - sensitive Gordie (Wil Wheaton), tough guy Chris (River Phoenix), flamboyant Teddy (Corey Feldman), and scaredy-cat Vern (Jerry O'Connell) - are in search of a missing teenager's body. Wanting to be heroes in each other's 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, the boys discover a strength they never knew they had. Based on the novella "The Body" by Stephen King, Stand By Me is a rare and special film about friendship and the indelible experience of growing up.
[last lines][typing on computer] I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?
You guys wanna go see a dead body?
