If you like 1980s teen films (Breakfast club etc..) U will LOVE this film!
28 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you like 80s movies, Sixteen Candles, Breakfast Club, etc... then you'll LOVE this movie. This movie is an 80s film made in the new millennium. People that don't like this movie don't understand what the director was trying to do. He was trying to capture the spirit of the 80s for our time. He even used Ally Sheedy, one of the classic 80s actresses!! This movie is just as good as the best 80s teen movies!!!! I doubt teens now could appreciate it. They're too busy watching SAW or Gossip Girl. But for those of you who appreciate the 80s this film is a real treat. The main actor, Spencer Breslin, is incredibly talented. It's amazing how convincing he is copying the mannerisms of a 40 year old. There's few teen actors out there who could pull it off. Cuba Gooding Jr. is HILARIOUS! I'm not really a fan of his but in this film he is fantastic. Don't miss this film!!!
