PG-13 | | Biography, Drama
A teenager with a massive facial skull deformity and biker gang mother attempt to live as normal a life as possible under the circumstances.
Songs by Bob Seger were substituted in place of those by Bruce Springsteen shortly before this movie's release after a failure to reach an agreement with Springsteen.
What's his problem, Ma?
Rusty Dennis: Nothing. He's just another asshole. You let that negative dreck in and it'll put ya away. You can be a chickenshit and die or be a mensch and keep makin' yourself well.
In the final scenes when Rusty destroys the kitchen, after she has taken the mug and destroyed all the glasses on the wooden shelf, the next scene in which she walks back into Rocky's bedroom, you can clearly see that there is blood on the right side of her forehead, making it appear as if she apparently got cut by some of the flying glass.
The Director's Cut print runs around 7 minutes longer and includes a scene where Rocky & Rusty sing around a bonfire, and the funeral of cyclist Red (his motorbike is buried beside him). It also replaces the Bob Seger songs with those of Bruce Springsteen.
