I hadn’t seen this since I was 13 or so, and watching it at 35, I think I got a lot more out of it from my adult perspective than my early adolescent one. Classic lines abound in this film (Well, I like art, I work in a gas station, my best friend is a tomboy. These things don’t fly too well in the American high school…) and it is always interesting to see the lack of adults in a John Hughes world. Sometimes what you think you want isn’t what you actually want.
