 Watched this tonight. I think it has some qualities; the acting is here and there not so bad. This movie may be radical in it's time, but now it is so outdated. I can not sympathize with the plot, too simple as it is it is deeply false in its role reversal.

@DiplomaticTies: Nice. How do you find the EW-shirts compared to other high end shirts? I have considered buying one from time to time, but was never able to make up my mind. 
Really not my cup of tea this one.
The Breakfast Club - John Hughes (1985)       It took me 30 years to see this, and I understand why. It's oldfashion both in the story and the filming. The camera is like a reminiscence from the 70-ties, without any interesting pictures and all the camerawork is made in sleep. The manuscript is unbelievable, and lacks both sting and humor. The characters are cliches and not people; no youth or grown ups behave like that. For a minute, some place in there, I thought...
