It was fine. Not particularly original, but a solid enough execution on the story type.
So here’s one that for persons of a certain age will hit home.
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
Planes, Trains, and Automobiles
Yes I am sure Weird Science doesn’t hold up nearly as well in retrospect if I watched it today, but each of those 5 movies is an iconic example of 80’s coming of age films.
Richard Donner has a bunch of classics in that late 70’s to early 90’s. There is no way to include Superman without also tagging Inside Moves (which I’ve never heard of), but The Goonies, Lethal Weapon, Scrooged, Lethal Weapon 2 is a pretty good collection in its own right.
Not John Hughes or James Cameron in the 80’s good, but pretty good still.
