Reviewer:Brian J. Dillard, In his directorial debut, successful comedy screenwriter John Hughes maps out the insecurities of middle-class adolescence with wit, empathy, and a large cast of enjoyably loopy teen characters. The film made pouty, chic Molly Ringwald a star, and more than 15 years later it isn't hard to see why. Sarcastic one minute, heart on her sleeve the next, she embodies the anxieties of bright but stifled youth the world over. Anthony Michael Hall, John Cusack, Joan Cusack, and host of lesser-known players make the most of their sometimes limited screen time with broad, dead-on comic personae. Heathers would scrawl ironic graffiti across this tender portrait of naïve suburbia a mere five years later, but few films, if any, have since captured its good-hearted charm. ~ Brian J. Dillard, Rovi
