Consumed by grief when his father is felled by a heart attack, 11-year-old Obie (Ricky Busker) runs away from his white, upper-class surroundings. He ends up in a particularly dismal Chicago ghetto neighborhood where, after enduring a beating administered by gang members, he is befriended by streetwise black youth Jeremy "Scam" Henderson (Darius McCrary). The two become partners in crime, leading to a deadly situation involving a pair of professional hit men. Just when it seems things can't get any worse, they do. Robert Prosky co-stars as a slimy pawnbroker. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A hip comedy classic that's as much fun as it is a blast from the past"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"Scripter Joe Eszterhas and director Robert Mandel squander most of the riches of this story by focusing on the boys' combat with two drug dealers."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
