Personally, i think this movie is one of the best I've ever seen, and it's probably my second or third favourite movie. However, I can understand that a lot of people might not like the film. But just because you don't like a film doesn't make it bad.
The thing that defines this movie is it's dialogue. The amount of swearing earned it a high rating in most countries, but the dialogue between teenagers in this film is the best written I've seen in a movie for quite a long time. It's a shame that this has resulted in the high rating because it will exclude a lot of people who are the right age to appreciate what this film is trying to say.
I bought this film recently from America, because it go a release in only three cinemas in the entire of England! It was worth the wait to get it on DVD though -- finally, a movie about young people that isn't stereotypical, Hollywood-ised and badly written, and actually attempts to create characters out of the teenagers instead of some demonised monsters who kill other teenagers, like the kind of thing the media might blow it up into. All credit to Jacob Aaron Estes (writer/director) for bringing a little moral ambiguity into it -- what would you do in this situation? Honestly -- I know what I should do, but I have a strong feeling that if this situation actually happened, I wouldn't actually be thinking about that.
Also, the performances in this movie are incredible. Each of the actors brings their characters to life brilliantly, and credit to Estes for managing to get strong performances from six young actors.

Personally, I can't see where this movie deserves the criticism it seems to be receiving from others' reviews. How can the plot of a movie which is only 86 minutes long be too slow? Maybe the plot doesn't have all the cliche twists & turns that a Hollywood movie about teenagers would, but that's one of the exceptional things about Mean Creek. The whole story flows so naturally, from the performances of the uber talented young cast, to the realistic dialogue, to the eventual tragic conclusion. People who enjoy watching Hollywood interpretations of how adolescence and hormones can create knife-wielding psychopaths out of kids will probably not like this film. This film doesn't exploit its teen characters to serve the plot, unlike slasher films, which are a lot of good fun but cannot be taken seriously. This film is here to make a subtle point on the complexities of adolescence, which is probably best summed up by Trevor Morgan when he says "I don't know what to think", to which Scott Mechlowicz replies "Well if you don't know what to think then maybe you shouldn't be making decisions". When we are teenagers (and I should really be familiar with this because I'm still going through it at 17) we make choices that seem so concretely right one minute, and which seem completely misjudged and wrong the next. It is a time when we are very rarely really in control of our emotions, or are even able to understand their reason. Estes, the debut director and writer of Mean Creek, has used this observation to guide his characters seamlessly through the story wihtout it ever feeling like they are puppets.Read more ›

This is an incredible film, but only for a certain audience. The tension is unbearable, the acting is brilliant from the mostly teenage cast, beautifally shot, and an immensely powerful ending/turn of events to top the whole thing off, the film deserves more than 5 stars. A low-buget masterpiece, deffinately worth watching.

This (in my opinion) is one of the greatest film i have ever seen. So moving and absolutly brilliant. The acting is superb and is a big step up for Josh Peck from Drake and Josh. Go rent it or buy it now!

Its a indie film of course, with a Culkin in it, I bought it because it made me feel the same the characters felt if that happened to me. The solitude of the boat ride was also strangely comforting.

Anyway... The DVD arrive on time, and was packaged well.

I think anyone who has gone through situations of bullying or still are should watch this, it is a heart-breaking movie that wonderfully and graphicly depicts what children sometimes go through with bullying and some even take it to far.
The story starts with Sam (Rory Culkin) who is physically beaten by the overweight bully George (Josh Peck) so his brother Rocky (Trevor Morgan) and his two friends Marty (Scott Mechlowicz) and Clyde (Ryan Kelley) hatch a plan of harmless revenge by inviting him to sams birthday party on a river trip. They also bring along Sams love interest Millie (Carly Schroder), but when she finds out about the plan everyone decides to call it off, but when one of the members burst out in rage the plan suddenly turns tragic and consequential that they have to live with and it will haunt them for the rest of there lives. Brilliant performances and a emotional movie creating a harrowing tale, WATCH IT!. star rating ***** out of *****
