PG-13 | | Crime, Drama, Thriller
A kidnapped boy strikes up a friendship with his captor: an escaped convict on the run from the law, while the search is headed up by an honorable Texas Ranger.
T. J. Lowther wears a stolen Casper The Friendly Ghost costume later in the movie. Director/co-star Clint Eastwood went on to appear as himself in Casper (1995). It probably brought back memories of A Perfect World (1993) for Eastwood.
Robert 'Butch' Haynes:
You know, Phillip, you have a goddamned red, white and blue American right to eat cotton candy and ride roller coasters.
Phillip 'Buzz' Perry: I do?
Robert 'Butch' Haynes: Hell, yes, you do!
The film takes place in autumn, as shown by the opening scenes of costumed kids out on Halloween night. Yet throughout the movie, all the grass and trees are bright green, indicating spring or summer.
