Too
obvious
Bad Boys
Starring: Sean Penn
Written by Richard DiLelb
Directed by Rick Rosenthal
Playing at State Theater
By Richard Campbell
fB VVIOUS DOESN'T begin to describe
the plot of the latest prison-rite-of
-passage film Bad Boys. It also doesn't
do justice to the actors or director.
Sean Penn stars as Mick, a self-
confident 17 year-old, continually on the
wrong side of the law and running ram-
pant in New York City. Though he
willingly engages in various criminal
activities, Mick is nonetheless com-
passionate, as demonstrated by
obligatory scenes with his hopelessly
middle-class girlfriend.
Shortly into the film, Mick decides to
muscle in on schoolmate Paco's drug
sale. The ensuing robbery, complete
with blasting guns and screeching car
chases, ends with Mick accidentally
killing Paco's kid brother, Mick getting
arrested, and Paco remaining free. The
battered Mick is quickly sent to jail, or,
as the judge puts it, to a juvenile den-
tention center until such time as he
becomes rehabilitated.

If Mick hadn't run Paco's brother
down during the car chase, the film
might've ended right there. But that is
just the first of many coincidences that
keep the story afloat. Nothing happens
in this film by itself, only as an action
stemming from revenge. Even simple
relationships that seem to humanize
characters are eventually used only to
foster more revenge and brutality. So,
don't be angry that I've revealed that
Paco's kid brother dies; his only pur-
pose in the film is to die.
Eventually Paco is arrested and
guess to which detention center he gets
assigned?
There is a quintessentially bad
western that is played by a cast of
midgets; Bad Boys' is all the cliches of
prison movies in one film played by a
cast of teenagers. If there were twists
in the movie's plot that turned on the
cliches writer Richard DiLello might
have had something. Instead, Bad
Boys, like a western with midgets, just
doesn't make much sense.
Director Rick rosenthal's taut pacing
and the precise, though forced, acting
by most of the cast serve to somewhat
redeem the picture. After playing a
beach-freak in Fast Times at
Ridgemont High, Sean Penn is back in a
film where he can really disply his
talents. But to a good extent, the beach
freak had more character and
motivation than Mick.
And when a film comes up short com-
pared to a doped-out-beach-freak, you
know it can't be good.
