5.0 out of 5 stars It just looks like an 80's teen movie, January 20, 2004
This review is from: Lucas (DVD)
Well, maybe I guess it is an 80's teen movie, but unlike other 80's teen movies this film is intelligent and has a heart.
The other movies from this genre are plot driven. Honestly, how many different titles has the story of "Can't Buy me Love" had? This movie however has taken a different perspective to look at teenage years and took the approach to drive the story from the characters, not plot.
The movie is brave by not taking the easy way out (except for one scene which I won't ruin) and I respect that. It also makes the movie less predictable and more entertaining to watch for us the audience.
I think this movie is the best movie of the teen movie genre. I loved Ferris Beuller, Sixteen Candles, and the other John Hughes greats. Those films were also loads more humerous too, but Lucas aims to do more than achieve laughs and I applaude its efforts.
