Number of Times Seen – Too many to count (Theater, DVD, 26 Jun 2013)
Brief Synopsis – 5 teens must spend a Saturday in detention and it changes their lives forever.
My Take on it – This is a movie that at the age of 11 I saw in the theater.
WHAT WERE MY PARENTS THINKING????
It’s an amazing movie, but I don’t think I’d let my kids watch this movie at that age.
The cast was great; Emelio Estevez, Molly Ringwald, Judd Nelson, Ally Sheedy and Anthony Michael Hall are all perfectly cast as their alter-egos.
The dialogue is amazing. Most writers would have trouble creating a two hour movie that is held together just by it’s dialogue because besides the interaction between the kid,s not much else happens and this movie is better off because of it.
It is rumored that it took John Hughes only two days to write the first draft of this movie
Bottom Line – One of the best high school movie ever made. Great cast, great dialogue. Highly recommended
Rating – Oscar Worthy
