A rather intelligent (if not terribly original) look at adolescent insecurities.

To be able to give this kind of stuff new and sympathetic twists is a tribute to Hughes' skill with narrative, and to Ringwald's magnetism as a performer.

Miss Ringwald's pouty naturalness remains her biggest asset, and her performance is once again appealing.

Although it is not a great movie, it contains some moments when the audience is likely to think, yes, being 16 was exactly like that.
