Every now and then a made-for-TV movie washes up on my shore that makes me go, ‘hey, we might have something here’ and this is one such flick. Without spoiling certain parts, suffice it to say it’s the classic teenage runaway yarn with males instead of the usual females and Time Square as the centerpiece, the original real Times Square I might add. Was really surprised by this one, it could pass as a feature and no one area gets high marks, everything about this one is tops, highly recommend!
