“The Most Dangerous Things” is what you get when you cross “Stand by Me” with “The Big Chill”.

In a suburb of Baltimore, five school-age kids share their friendship and childhood experiences as they are coming of age in this non-descript community. These friends who were impacted by a significant occurrence in their past, find out what really happened when the group meets much later in life at the funeral of their youngest friend.
Some of the writing seemed melodramatic, lines like “it meant nothing, it meant everything” were done to the point of redundancy.
