Around the Fire Reviews:

This film is disguised as some sort of hippie coming of age drama... but the sad truth is that this is just a thinly veiled bit of anti-drug propaganda. The soundtrack and watching Tara Reid be hot are about the only things going for this movie. Beyond that, the film suffers from a predictable (and very bad) plot, stereotype characters, and cheezy dialog. It's like watching an After School Unique that just drags on and on and on.If you are considering watching this movie... place on a Grateful Dead CD and download pictures of Tara Reid from the internet. You'll receive all the nice points of the film without having to endure the painful "Drugs are bad, mmkay?" plot. If you don't already test drugs, listening to the dialog in this film will drive you to drugs in an effort to slay the pain.


The movie "Around the fire" is a fairly plausible attempt at showing drug culture and how it can negatively affect a person's life. The real thing that this movie lacked was script. Not an altogether terrible script, but one that should have used more work.What, tradgically, does not receive recognition is the direction of John Jacobsen. Jacobsen, who was working with two fairly unknown actors of the time, Devon Sawa and Tara Reid (who had some success earlier)used his skills as a director to truly pull the greatest performances from these young actors. Also Jacobsens direction in this movie really parallels Mamet, in a way. He is a no-nonsense director who has not received the attention he truly deserves.


Tara Reid wasn't at all convincing in her role- and I've never seen a hippie chick with that much makeup. Though the entire film is drenched in tie-dye, the 'authentic' feel of a tour atmosphere is lacking. But the main hero is simple to relate to (even if you haven't lived the life on the road) and the film is generally entertaining. Nice to see once.
