Producers: Polly Platt, Richard Marks
A celebrated "teen" film, which is probably more mature and adult then people might think, I enjoyed this film but didn't see it as the "brilliant" piece that others have proclaimed.
Great dialogue, dead-on performances from all three leads, Cusack, Skye and Mahoney, a nice romance, cool soundtrack and some funny lines. Granted, the film did take me back to that "time and place" in my own life, but I think it's probably geared more towards those who still don't know what they want out of their lives.
A young JERRY MAGUIRE...?
And BTW, what ever happened to Ione Skye...? She was pretty good in this.
