I cannot believe I left this movie out. If you guys haven’t seen this then you’re in for a real treat. Get ready for the emergence of Brad Pitt and the revival of one Ricky Schroder in 1991’s Across the Tracks. Are you ready for this summary? Here we go….
When Billy returns from reform school he has to attend a different high school at the other side of town. He tries to start with a clean slate but his old rival doesn’t make it easy on him and his buddy Louie tries to make him go astray again. His brother Joe, quite the opposite of Billy, is a good runner and determined to win a track scholarship. He suggests Billy to join his school’s track team, which pits the two brothers against each other.
OK what this summary doesn’t tell you is that the acting and dialogue in this movie could not possibly be any worse. It’s incredible to see an actor as good as Brad Pitt being unbelievably over dramatic and Schroder going in and out of some weird white trash accent.
I don’t want to give away what happens but trust me you’ll feel dumber for watching this. But you kind of have to.
How could you not watch this?
