I felt the movie was a good movie. The story of a school being closed in a dying area is not always happy. When the decision is made and the community hasn't had any input, it's a shock and a hardship on many.
For the students of the school to want to go out with a blaze of glory and to do just that is what makes this movie enjoyable.
Sure it was in the late 80's and as with all movies, the music in it reflected the current time.
It is one that I have on video and watch over and over again.
