Side Out is a 1990 romantic comedy sports movie by director Peter Israelson, starring C. Thomas Howell, Peter Horton, and Courtney Thorne-Smith. In the movie, Milwaukee college law student Monroe Clark (C. Thomas Howell) heads to Los Angeles, California for a less than glamorous summer job in the glamorous city: evicting his wealthy uncleâ€™s tenants. He knows that people tend to â€˜shoot the messengerâ€™ and thus does not expect to make any friends. Which is why he is quite surprised to find himself becoming friends with deadbeat ex-professional volleyball player Zack Barnes. When the two decide to team up and prepare for the biggest volleyball tournament of the year, even though Monroe is a complete volleyball rookie, it turns out that his summer may not be as boring as expected. Side Out is a funny film for volleyball afficianados, as well as anyone who just wants to enjoy a light hearted film with a beautiful setting.
