Product Description

In a small woodsy Oregon town, a group of friends--sensitive Gordie (Wil Wheaton), tough guy Chris (River Phoenix), flamboyant Teddy (Corey Feldman), and scaredy-cat Vern (Jerry O'Connell)--are in search of a missing teenager's body. Wanting to be heroes in each other's and their hometown's eyes, they set out on an unforgettable two-day trek that turns into an odyssey of self-discovery. They sneak smokes, tell tall tales, cuss 'cause it's cool and band together when the going gets tough. When they encounter the town's knife-wielding hoods who are also after the body, the boys discover a strength they never knew they had. Stand By Me is a rare and special film about friendship and the indelible experiences of growing up. Filled with humor and suspense, Stand By Me is based on the novella 'The Body' by Stephen King.

A sleeper hit when released in 1986, Stand by Me is based on Stephen King's novella "The Body" (from the book Different Seasons); but it's more about the joys and pains of boyhood friendship than a morbid fascination with corpses. It's about four boys ages 12 and 13 (Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman, Jerry O'Connell) who take an overnight hike through the woods near their Oregon town to find the body of a boy who's been missing for days. Their journey includes a variety of scary adventures (including a ferocious junkyard dog, a swamp full of leeches, and a treacherous leap from a train trestle), but it's also a time for personal revelations, quiet interludes, and the raucous comradeship of best friends. Set in the 1950s, the movie indulges an overabundance of anachronistic profanity and a kind of idealistic, golden-toned nostalgia (it's told in flashback as a story written by Wheaton's character as an adult, played by Richard Dreyfuss). But it's delightfully entertaining from start to finish, thanks to the rapport among its young cast members and the timeless, universal themes of friendship, family, and the building of character and self-esteem. Kiefer Sutherland makes a memorable teenage villain, and look closely for John Cusack in a flashback scene as Wheaton's now-deceased and dearly missed brother. A genuine crowd-pleaser, this heartfelt movie led director Rob Reiner to even greater success with his next film, The Princess Bride. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Stand By Me is a story of the coming of age of 4 teenage boys on a quest to find the body of another teenager who has gone missing & is rumored to have been struck by a train. the boys pack up their bedrolls, sneak out of their homes and so the trek begins. Well acted by Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Cory Feldman and Jerry O'Connell, this film is superb in every way. Keifer Sutherland co-stars as the dominating and cruel friend of Vern's (Jerry O'Connell) older brother who is also on his way with his gang of punk friends to find the body of the missing boy. Wonderfully acted by all the cast, the film is brilliantly directed by Rob Reiner and narrated by Richard Dreyfuss, this is simply the best novel by Stephen King and Rob Reiner's finest work. A wonderful film flor anyone who was a teenager in the 50s, the old rock and roll is music is played throughout the film which only ads to the atmosphere of the movie. Get this movie and enjoy!

I'm not going to write a synopsis of the plot here or tell you how great the movie is. You already know that. If you are going to buy this movie on DVD and have never seen it, plan to watch the bonus documentary included on the new DVD release first, "Walking the Tracks," a behind-the-scenes look at the making of film as told by Rob Reiner, Stephen King, Wil Wheaton, Corey Feldman and Jerry O'Connell. You'll hear Wil explain why Gordie doesn't get his brother's Yankee cap returned, what Jerry O'Connell really thought of Kiefer Sutherland, and how Rob Reiner made two of the cast members weep during the train trestle scene! The docu footage appears to have been shot on the late 1990s or even early 2000, and it's wonderful to see these people together again (River Phoenix, who died in 1993, is not part of the documentary, but is referred to by just about everyone being interviewed). The DVD format has the advantage of letterbox format (don't worry--you won't get a shrunk and stretched-looking movie . . . the widescreen format for this movie is superb, and it will make you toss your old VHS copy in the trash five minutes into the movie). The sound is good as it gets, and you'll also have subtitle options (watch dialogue to the flick in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese, Tai, or Korean). Overdubbed voice options include French, Spanish, Portuguese, and of course, the original dialogue in English. The best part for me was watching the movie with English subtitles, which made me realize for the first time what some of the dialogue was (including some put downs my ears could never quite figure out--"wet end" and "whoremaster," among others).Read more ›

Based on a novella by Stephen King, Stand by Me tells the tale of four friends in the summer of 1959 who go in search of the body of a missing boy their own age in the thick woods surrounding their small hometown of Castle Rock. There’s the mild-mannered Gordie (Wil Wheaton), tough guy Chris (the late great River Phoenix), loose-cannon Teddy (Corey Feldman), and clumsy Vern (Jerry O’Connell). Complicating their search is the fact that the town’s toughest gang, lead by Ace Merrill (Kiefer Sutherland), is also searching for the body.

Stand by Me is a beloved 1986 film about growing up, friendship and courage that is all the more powerful for the outstanding performances of its four young lead actors. As they set out on their trek down the train-tracks they are forced to pull together and exhibit a strength they never knew they had. And when it’s all over and they emerge from the woods, they’ve discovered more about themselves, each other and the world as a whole. It’s a tale that you can tell is very close to director Rob Reiner’s heart as it is very lovingly told and offers up a great soundtrack and breathtaking scenery.

Stand by Me has never looked better and offers up great video & audio quality. Fine detail and the woodsy colors in and around the small town of Castle Rock all look especially great. Special features include a 25th anniversary picture-in-picture commentary/reunion (a Blu-ray exclusive) with director Reiner and actors Wheaton and Feldman, an audio commentary by Reiner, ‘Walking the Tracks: The Summer of Stand by Me’ documentary (37 min), and a music video (3 min).

Format: VHS Tape
This 1986 film directed by Rob Reiner is, without a doubt, the best film adaption of any piece of work from horror maestro Stephen King. However, this isn't the usual King/horror story. It's a magical journey back to youth and the fun adventures you'd have as a kid. Not to mention the bonds you develop with your closest childhood friends. The movie takes place in the 1950's where a group of friends decide to go on an overnight adventure to find the dead body of a boy who was hit and killed by a train. During their journey, the young lads have a few of their own scary encounters. The young guys are all played very realisticly by Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman, and the incredibly slimmed down Jerry 'O' Connell. Along the way, they encounter the town bully, played wonderfully by Kiefer Sutherland. The movie is narrarated by an adult Gordy(Wheaton's character), who is voiced, and played, by Richard Dreyfuss. I have always thought Dreyfuss had a great voice, and it is put to great use here. It's a special movie that will rekindle fond memories of your own childhood. Most people might not of gone on such a big and odd journey as these guys, but I'm sure almost anybody can relate to that special time in life. Reiner did a great job. Watch out for a cameo appearence by John Cusack. A great American classic.
