Weird Science Reviews
Written and directed by John Hughes, the man who cornered the market on teen comedy-dramas in the 1980s. He directed and wrote classics such as The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off and Sixteen Candles and wrote Pretty in Pink and Some Kind of Wonderful.
This is not in the same league as any of those, not even close. Silly, largely unfunny and quite juvenile. While his best movies were teen-orientated they still had great sensitivity, drama and gravitas, and a reasonably clever sense of humour. This does not. It's pretty much the worst kind of teen movie - random plot, bizarre, pointless high jinks, cheesy comedy.
