I'm not saying I'm the kind of guy Lloyd Dobler is (ask the ladies) but I can totally relate to that character, his awkward but good-spirited behaviour and his seemingly impossible quest to be with Ione Skye.
Both, her and John Cusack, have an undeniably appealing chemistry on film, which ultimately earns most of the movie's accolades.
The 80s fashion and pop music, though dreadful for today's standards, I have always been nostalgic and open minded about it, and I'm not ashamed to say I love it.
Cameron Crowe was still forming up as a director, that shows; but his writing was very good. Probably the only thing I don't enjoy about it, is that subplot focusing on John Mahoney's character.
Attention to Cusack's real life buddy, Jeremy Piven, in what probably is the movie's funniest scene.
Overall, a funny, smart and endlessly charming little movie that can stir many of the emotions we thought to be lost after we left either our school, or our one and only girl.
