Review:

Although John Hughes (The Breakfast Club) wrote and produced this movie, don't expect precocious kids or humorous high jinks. In fact, a wry smile is about the most this earnest drama wants from a viewer in the humor department. Set in a small town and taking place during one night, it's the story of a smart loser (Face/Off's Alessandro Nivola) who intentionally gets himself locked up in order to torment his police officer jailer (William Sadler). Director William Ryan gives this 100-minute film a stage-play feel by keeping the set simple--mostly a local jail with some action on the town's main street--and the cast small. It may have a modern-day setting, but Reach the Rock has a period feel to it, recalling a time when which side of the tracks you lived on meant everything and breaking a window resulted in a night behind bars. --Kimberly Heinrichs
