This movie was adorable! It wasn't perfect, by any means, and it's quite a time capsule of 80's fashions and music, but it was such fun! Dice has never been more adorable, and Jerry Levine's character, Jamie, was such a little hottie. I loved the girls speaking to the camera, and the little flashbacks. I love the ending, too.
"There's your boyfriend!"
An 8 from me, a truly adorable film.
A very easy 10 (of course, to be fair I have seen 19 Lea Thompson films, so I am not exactly unbiased when it comes to her). Top three Lea Films: 3: "Back To The Future." 2: "Casual Sex?" 1: "Red Dawn."
I agree with you. I give it a 10 as well. I love this movie. There is a reviewer on IMDB that said this is the kind of movie critics love to hate and it won't win awards. But, it makes you feeeeeeel guuuuuuud. I couldn't agree more.
I love the character arc of Vinnie. And Stacy's break up scene with Nick.."You don't have to take care of me....". This is when they were making movies where EVERY scene had purpose and was interesting. In recent years, it seems dialogue has gotten less clever (regardless of genre) and they want people to go see movies lured in by the actors/stars. Not the story.
I just finished watching this again. I love this movie as well. It is very sweet.
