Quite a fun 80s flashback and a good John Hughes work. It isn't anything particularly great, but it does achieve what it set out to do so in that regard it should be commended. Good movie, but there are much better teen films.
Great 80's teen movie. Bit of a fluff movie but it made me laugh.
Very cheesy but I liked it. The film doesn't pretend to be more than it is. there are some funny parts provided by "Long-duck Dong" and a pleasant enough ending al be it unrealistic. Worth a look as many TV shows and other movies reference this movie in one way or another.
very corny couldn't make myself finish watching
I didn't like it, the movie went for too long especially considering the boy and the girl liked each other from the beginning. It then gave too much time to racist and sexist behavior.
If you feel like watching a trashy 80s movie go with Pretty In Pink instead.
This teen romantic comedy is a fun flashback to the '80s. More than 20 years later, some of the jokes are a little difficult to relate to (perhaps especially for a non-American audience), but there are some genuine laugh-out-loud scenes. We had a lot of fun spotting the very young John and Joan Cusack. Recommended!
Watching it again made me relive my teenage years. It is just as good a movie now as it was back then. Loved it.
The essance of the 80's teen movie....heart warming and suprisingly witty in some parts. best for a girls night in.
The rating for this movie is wrong. We turned it off after the first 10 minutes, because of the coarse language, including f..k! The story promotes teen sex at 16 years? How wrong....!
NO VALUES. Has to be rated M; adult themes and frequent medium level coarse language.
