Critic Review - Ozus' World Movie Reviews

It's an airhead teen film that nevertheless caught the public's fancy and still remains a popular cult favorite.

So tell me, sir, what is a good movie to you? It seems to me that you like to be overly critical because it builds something up about you that you don't like. This is a cult classic for a reason. Your sad opinion just turns people away from a great experience.

Actually, I count on this, ahem, 'critic'....If he doesn't like it, then I know it must be good.

A couple of fanboys who can't stand to see their favorite childhood film get bashed. FBDO is right up there with Rdigemont High as the two most overrated teen comedies of all time.

I wouldn't venture to call this film a "Cult favorite", as it had a relatively successful theatrical run.

Hello I'm an airhead teen, and all me and my friends talk about is how what we would do if we had an abusive parents that care about cars, and how to stand up to them and how to expell anger through subconciencly allowing our friend to drive it around and then wrecking it later, boy are we stupid
