Conclusion

you candy-asses halfway across the state and back, I'll be waiting for you on the other side relaxing with my thoughts and Gordie says "you use your left hand or your right hand for that"? The end of the film Chris has a fight with a bunch of boys, which wanted the died body as well, but Gordie had a gun and threatened to shot him if he didn't leave Chris alone, but he didn't believe him so he carried on so Gordie fired a warning shot that's when the bunch of hooligans started to walk away it was astounding because you can see how close friends there are. What they did was extraordinary and breathtaking because instead of taking the body back to the police and being rich which they came for they gave it a funeral. I think the film Stand By Me was extraordinary the film is about fear, how teenagers are like and most of all friendship. ...read more.
