This Spoils the Ending
In the Movie In the Movie
   Matt and Jed are allies and always have each other's backs. They are fighting most of the time because Matt is a hothead who only cares about himself.
   Tanner is killed. He survives.
   The Russians invaded and have been successful using regular combat. There is a device that the Koreans used to gain the advantage.
   The boys head to the woods to hide out. They stop at a sporting goods store first to get supplies. They camp out in the woods. They go to Jed and Matt's family cabin.
   After some time living in the woods, Jed, Matt and Robert go into town. They end up at Mr. Mason's house and he asks them to take his Grand daughters, Toni and Erica with them. They have never met the boys before. Erica is Matt's girlfriend and she is taken prisoner. They eventually free her.

Also, Erica is the one who falls in love with Tanner in the 1984 version. Not Toni.
