If you enjoy watching how Jon Cryer acts in his movies then you will enjoy this movie. Jon is his irresistible self here. He looks hot in his grown up clothes and sweet in his teen gear too. There is a little action, some comedy, and a little romance for the girls. This is a must see for you if you liked him as Duckie in Pretty In Pink. Annabelle Gish plays a great role as well. For me the interaction of Jon with his family and the comedy that happens there is great. The cinematography is easy on the eyes. Loved the fact that Roy Orbison's song "Crying" was used in just the right scene. And the ending...I loved it. Don't want to spoil it for you so I won't say much more about the end. Watch it! It's good!
