Am I being too harsh with my grade here? Not sure. I just happened to have never seen this movie in its entirety but I heard a whole lot about it of course and I had seen bits and pieces. It was not really bad, had some good laughs, and of course Phoebe Cates, but I just do not think this is a classic that stood to the test of time. I also have a problem with the identity crisis here. We have screwball over-the-top comedy about high school students (mostly funny) and then we have a coming of age drama. The drama here is the pretty rough plot of Stacy (Jennifer Jason Leigh) involving an adult having sex with a minor and abortion among other things. I am not being a prude here, I’m just talking about good film making. These two genres can mix, but it is not an easy thing to do and it was not done right here.
