DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - Outside Providence is a teen coming-of-age movie set in the early 1970s. Teen viewers may enjoy the broad humor, though the film is R-rated and much of the humor is drug-based. Some older viewers could enjoy the comedy, as well as the father-son relationship and other themes of an irresponsible teenager learning to be more mature. The excessive profanity and drug use, however, may be too much for some adult viewers.

Critic's Review Heading
Average
OUTSIDE PROVIDENCE has a certain gritty appeal as an off-beat family dramedy. It's just a film that's always casting around for its center, offering sporadic entertainment that doesn't stick to you. It's not quite funny enough for a comedy, not quite insightful enough for a story of adolescent awakening, and not quite emotional enough for a story of family ties.

OPINION GRAPH


D ETAILED S TORYLINE

In the blue-collar town of Pawtucket, Rhode Island, Timothy Dunphy (Shawn Hatosy) has a broken home, a three-legged dog and a full-blown attraction to trouble. His friends have no future, but he's about to get one whether he likes it or not. After crashing into a parked police car, his father (Alec Baldwin) packs him off to prep school - where he's out of place, outclassed and seriously outnumbered.

His fellow students and school sweetheart (Amy Smart) may have gone to prep school all their lives, but nothing could prepare them for him.
