    This movie was excellent. The only reason this movie doesn't get all 5 popcorn is that the end of the movie left out a crucial part of the book. When Ponyboy bonded with his brothers at the end of the story, it tied together with a theme of family. I was very disappointed that they left this out because that was some serious character development.

      The Outsiders is definitely my favorite movie, based on S.E. Hinton's book (also my favorite) The Outsiders, With an amazing cast (C. Thomas Howell as Ponyboy, Matt Dillon as Dallas, Ralph Macchio as Johnny, Emilio Eztevez as Two-Bit, Tom Cruise as Steve, Rob Lowe as Soda, Diane Lane as Cherry, and Patric Swayze as Darry) and equivalently amazing story line! Set in Tulsa, OK in the 1960's it's all about Seven boys, from the wrong side of the tracks, not all brothers but as close as family, but one night when Johnny and Pony are jumped by the Socs, things go terribly wrong. It always leaves me in tears. I am a big fan! Going to the museum when it reopens! Stay Gold!

              (Warning: Slight Spoilers) It’s the 1960s. People are recovering from The Great Depression. But, did you expect that, just like these days, kids were judged highly on their money, cars, and clothes? Ponyboy (14) (main character), his brothers handsome Sodapop Curtis (16) and strong and oldest Darrel Curtis (20 something), and the rest of the gang mean and crude Dally, scared of his own shadow Johnny (16), Steve (17) , and (19), are what are called greasers, the east side. The only thing they were truly proud of was their hair greased back. They weren’t very rich or popular with the Socs, or socials, on the West Side. Guys who wore expensive clothes and drove the hottest Mustangs. Girls who didn’t wear too much eye makeup and looked like supermodels all the same. When Ponyboy meets Sherri “Cherry” Valance at the movies after they rejected their boyfriends since they were drunk, she and him immediatley became buddies. Dally, Cherry told Ponyboy that things were “rough all over”, but he didn’t believe her. She also told him not to be upset if she saw him at school and didn’t say hi. She was a nice girl, but she wasn’t about to embarrass herself in front of all her friends. Once Bob, Cherry’s drunk boyfriend, sees that his girl, and his best friends girl Marcia, were picked up by a couple greasers (Ponyboy, Johnny and Twobit) they hinted that this wasn’t over, and Cherry and Marcia went with them to prevent fights. But when Johnny kills a Soc for self defense concerning Ponyboy, life takes an unexpected twist concerning a church on fire that changes their gang forever in more than one way. Based on the bestselling novel by S.E Hinton, the Outsiders will show you how kids were concerned with popularity even back then. It’s defintley one of my favorite books, and I think you should read the book before you watch the movie (the book and movie are both amazing).

                The best movie ever from the 80's because it was so emotional. Great directing and great acting and great development

                    That is not true. I think that this movie teaches kids about stereotypes and different ways of life

                    Based on the best-selling novel by S. E. Hinton, the film takes place in rural Tulsa, Oklahoma in the '60's. Protagonist Ponyboy Curtis writes his story for English class about his friends and the adventures of the Greaser gang. The wealthy "Socs" lived on the West and wore madras shirts and rode Mustangs. On the East, resides the poor Greaser gang known for their long, greased hair. Ponyboy and his friend Johnny end up in a situation where they are surrounded by drunk Socs in a park. They almost drowned Ponyboy so Johnny had no choice but to kill Bob (the leader of the Socs). They run away and hid until there was news of a rumble. When they were hiding, they watched the sunset, and Ponyboy recited a poem known as "Nothing Gold Can Stay" by Robert Frost. Johnny deeply thinks about this poem and tells Ponyboy about the poem later on in the film and the story. On the way home, the church they were hiding in lit on fire and there were children inside. Johnny and Ponyboy quickly ran in to save the children, but johnny was severely burned and soon died in the hospital.Before dying, Johnny told Ponyboy to stay gold because he knew that Ponyboy has a whole life ahead of him and he should keep enjoying the innocence in his life. Dally (a member of the Greasers) made sure that he got shot by the police on purpose because he couldn't live without Johnny. Ponyboy soon receives comfort from his brothers and writes about the story known as the "Outsiders".
