"I loathe the bus. There has to be a more dignified mode of transportation."

To be honest, I always had a hard time with John Hughes, but since this movie had a decent reputation,  I thought I might as well check it out.

Samantha's life is going downhill fast. The fifteen-year-old has a crush on the most popular boy in school, and the geekiest boy in school has a crush on her. Her sister's getting married, and with all the excitement the rest of her family forgets her birthday! Add all this to a pair of horrendously embarrassing grandparents, a foreign exchange student named Long Duc Dong, and we have the makings of a hilarious journey into young womanhood.

Indeed, even though I tend to think that John Hugues gets too much credit for his depiction of teenagers in the 80’s, I have to admit that he did a fine job here and the whole thing worked really well as long as it remained realistic. At first, I had my doubts about Molly Ringwald as I thought she was actually too pretty for this part but she eventually won me over. The fact that she was really 16 years old around the time of fil” read more
