Favorite Movie

~I think that Stand by me is the best movie that River ever played in. Its one of those movies that every one can relate to. I mean everyone has been 12 before, if you think back to when you were younger about 12. Those where the days when you weren't scared of anything, all you wanted to do was hang out with your friends(and you know you did some crazy suff that you probably wouldn't do now). I know that when I was that age my friends and I were just like that. And at the end of the movie when Rob Reiner says he will probably never have friends like he did when he was 12, I think to myself that is so true. Ever since Middle School ended my friends and I haven't ever been as close as we were, when we where 12.Just like the Movie, Chris (played by River) and Gorddy go off to the all the normal classes and the other two go to the shop classes.
