Keith arrives home after taking his savings out of the bank and starts to go upstairs. He puts his sunglasses in his shirt pocket, but when his father calls him into the room, they're hanging from the front of his t-shirt. See more »

So, do you always bring an extra girl when you go out?
Well, I like to cover my bets.
That's very cute. I'll have to remember that.

This is the best of the eighties 'US High School/Teen Angst' movies. There were loads, but none to match this one. There's a character in here for each of you to associate with, be it the nerdy Keith, with the bossy younger sister and the unattainable crush, or Duncan, the kind-hearted skinhead. If you only ever watch two of these movies again, make them 'The Breakfast Club' and this one.
