Drezzy85 - There's an energy to the movie that most films don't have. It's John Hughes as re-done by Bret Easton Ellis and all tossed into a blender with an almost Quentin Tarantino-meets-Kevin Smith edge to the dialogue, and it all works wonderfully. There's not an excessive amount of depth to the movie, but the fact that it just came and went without a whole lot of fanfare is a crime.

Sweet Popcorn And Late Nights61 - Touches on the greatness of some John Hughes classics, but is too fluffy and light to become a film worth remembering.
