Tex? You alright? You lose Something?
[laying under his bed with only his feet sticking out]
It's kinda nice down here. Cool and Quiet.
Yeah, well maybe you should hurry it up so you can come have breakfast under the kitchen table. Then maybe you can catch a ride under the school bus!

Disney Pictures did a pretty good job on this movie. Matt Dillon played a really good Tex McCormick and the other actors and actresses were really good too. The movie was almost like the book except for little differences. The only thing i did not like were the cast members. Now! wait don't get me wrong they all did a wonderful job, but the only one that seemed to fit the description of the character as in the book was Matt Dillon. That dosen't really matter, its the movie not the book. So it should be different,and its a good movie. Just that you can't really rent it anywhere so you will probaly have to buy it. I had to.
