It's way too hackneyed for John Hughes. He's already shown us that he knows better.

Molly Ringwald is appealing, but the film has little else going for it.

This is like every other Hughes film, just a little shoddier.

Deutch has no discernible style; the scenes march ahead with only one development per scene, much like the worst in American television.

Unfortunately she gets straitjacketed in her current movie by a script that settles for black-and-white pronouncements instead of the delicate shades of gray that Ringwald employs.

To be able to give this kind of stuff new and sympathetic twists is a tribute to Hughes' skill with narrative, and to Ringwald's magnetism as a performer.

These kids have a bumpy ride, but this is one film that identifies with their passions instead of indulging them, giving us a perfect back-seat view of kids out cruising, not for kicks but for a hard-earned sense of pride.

It belts along pleasingly enough, but this frenetic, hard-edged comedy drama is too hackneyed to be entirely successful.

It's not deep, and it's far from original, but Hughes' word processor apparently still had a little magic left in it.
