This movie will get you crying because of the emotions of the four boys trying to find the body of the kid who never came back. There is so much sadness with this movie with a great narrator voice perfect for the effect of this movie as well as great music just like in The Sandlot. These four young men go through trials of going to find the boy who never came home. This movie is also great because it shows the bond between friends and the idea that an adventure is not always just fun but can be a little scary.
Then we see that there is also bullies who pick on the younger kids in the movie. The effect of this movie plays on your feelings of childhood memories and friends that were there for you! All the friends have something that they hate or just like Wil who lost somebody, the other three have bad home situations there fathers beat them. Except for Jerry who is picked on by his older brother because he is chubby. There was a regard for dissing someone mother like now we say your momma jokes still today. These friends will become closer after this adventure.
