A classic movie about growing up and loving music that doesn't try to be more than it is. The characters feel real, the comedy is a little offbeat, but plentiful, and the soundtrack is glorious. Rex Manning Day!

I love this movie. Part of this could be due to the age I was when I saw it, but I feel it is a classic in the teen comedy genre. Truly funny and with great dialogue. I'd recommend it for lovers of teen comedies such as the Breakfast Club. Not for everyone, but worth a try.

This movie has kept me company through many many many late night college procrastinations when I would be writing a paper last minute. Entertaining characters, entertaining story, entertaining music.....needless to say...this movie is entertaining. As Tarkin mentioned....each character is built off of some sort of stereotype; which really makes it relate able to pretty much anyone watching. We all know one or more of these type of characters in our life. After all these year, I never tire of watching this movie. Whether I decide to just sit back and watch it with no distractions; or if I put it on as background while I work on other things.

If you watch this for nothing else, enjoy it for alternative rock music that permeates throughout. The people are all clear-cut stereotypes, but if you grew up in the 90s, they're familiar ones. It works for me.
