Summary: Think everyone over 17 has forgotten what it's like to be 16? John Hughes hasn't. Now Hughes delivers another funny, savvy, crowd-pleasing look at adolescence in this story about high school misfit Keith (Stoltz), who falls so head-over-heels for the senior class siren Amanda Jones (Thompson) that he's blind to the charms of his beautiful and devoted best pal Watts (Masterson). (Paramount)
