Newt's movie review

John Hughes + Molly Ringwald = humourous 80s teen angst movie.

I really like this flick and will add it to my collection. Billie Bird is tremendous, AMH couldn't be better, and Molly Ringwald just has to be Molly Ringwald. Schoeffling couldn't pass for 18 here but that never seems to matter to Hughes. Rent it, buy it, own it, show it to your kids.
