"I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anybody?”

Stand by Me is, and always will be, a timeless coming of age film that is never diminished by subsequent viewings. It is a career high point for the four young leads and will forever stir sadness at the loss of River Pheonix at such a young age. Though set long before my time, these friends are my friends. We had the club house, we went looking for adventure, we laughed together and were there for each other when things were hard. True friendship makes a lasting impression and this film stirs those memories. Stand by Me is as poignant today as it was 25 years ago and is simply must see, or see again.

Besides the acting of the child actors, which is very good and is a remarkable achievement, the movie is boring as hell and totally overrated.

Stand By Me is the most beautiful film ever. This is honestly an 80’s MASTERPIECE! I felt myself wanting to go back in time to hang out with my childhood friends.

What I really enjoyed about this film was how the tone of the film would change so smoothly and perfectly through comical, sentiment More

Oh my gosh I can’t lie the acting was shit, like it was so bad like the fake crying and shit like bro no. But the story line was cute, their friendship so adorable.

Ok everyone - this is a 80's kid about kids, but don't think it is like the others as it is a Stephen King adaptation. It isn't for kids - unless you want to traumatize them.

Coming of age at a high price, what makes this a special one on that decade.

A solid 8.2 out of 10.0 / A in my score.

My all-time favourite movie! Like Gordie, I was a shy, sensitive boy, who was (and am) a writer, and I've been told by so many people I have a talent for it. Also, I've had many friends like Chris, being tough on the outside, while sweet on the inside, and I've known people like Vern, Teddy and Denn More
