5.0 out of 5 stars A film which makes you laugh and makes you think.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on October 30, 2019
A strong group of characters hold this film together. It's a very different kind of film to Sixteen Candles, its slower, more meditative, there's very little music, long scenes of dialogue, a very small cast and pretty much just one location. The film continues on from Sixteen Candles in treating the characters with a degree of respect, they're not just stereotypical teenagers being goofy, or sex mad youngsters who just want to party while we wait for Jason Vorhees to show up.
The film could definitely be taught in film school today, the editing and cinematography are especially praiseworthy, the characters wear one set of clothes for the whole film, the clothing becomes sort of iconic. The adult characters in the film are portrayed largely negatively, pushy parents, others are neglectful, some are domineering and intimidating. The films tone is more serious and sombre but there are plenty of sharp jokes and dry humour too. The main characters are all portrayed as initially defiant and sort of aloof while still giving the audience flashes of the fear, insecurity and angst lying underneath.

I throughly recommend this film to people of all ages. It should make you laugh and hopefully make you think too.

The Blu Ray is also worth the upgrade with a High Definition transfer. The colours all look nice and natural, contrast is good and the picture is sharp and free of flicker or damage.
