  • The very best thing about the movie is its dialogue. Paul Brickman, who wrote and directed, has an ear so good that he knows what to leave out. show more

  • Smart, stylish, and cynical about the values of its time, this movie aspires to be The Graduate for its generation and it comes pretty close. show more

  • An adolescent-oriented farce so finely tuned it projects beyond its narrow intended audience - it's not only for adolescents, it's for anyone who remembers what adolescence was like. [05 Aug 1983]
