John Hughes knows the 80's. And this proves it. The film is a drama/comedy about a teenage girl and her problems in social and family life. Though I am a guy, I identified with a lot of the problems and I thought there was so much to like in this film. It's just that this is a little softer than the other Hughes films.

By the way, Andrew Dice Clay appears as a bouncer, so pay attention to his part which highlights the film for me. A
