Uneven, occasionally hilarious '80s teen comedy.

Hmmm.....

This is an ok movie. However, talk to your kids about suicide beforehand. It has a bunch of talk about it. Also has some sexual language such as "t*******s". Only let your kids watch if they can handle it.

Good movie, but would be rated PG-13 today.

This movie is pretty good, to admit it. It's my mom's favorite. "Gee, Ricky. I'm really sorry your mom blew-up last night" LOL!
