    Frank Whaley is likable as a perpetual truth stretcher who takes a job is there overnight janitor at a target where he encounters beautiful Richgirl and want to be shoplifter Jennifer Connelly. they spend the night talking about each other's problems iand breaking down and breaking down their misconceptions of one another. John Hughes's script still has some moments of teen insight that he was allotted for in the 80s but The fact is nothing really happens Plugwise here , which was obviously a concern to him hence the unwise introduction of two Deadly criminals during the last act. So this movie hasn't remembered fondly alongside 16 candles or the breakfast club instead people with good reason tender remember Tonnele his face which is shown in the close up more times than I can count , and her mesmerizing ride on the hobbyhorse, although the roller skating scene and especially the its hilarious expected conclusion/collision is my favorite moment.

    Nice good time. A good chance to see Frank Whaley talent in this characteristic Hughes romantic comedy.

    I was slightly obsessed with Frank Whaley at the time I watched this and so that made it enjoyable enough for me to sit through it. Other than that, it was extremely lame. Bad dialogue, silly plot, no chemistry between Connelly and Whaley etc...

    I loved this light romantic comedy, Connelly is beautiful and charming and cute, and it's funny, what's not to like?
