This is a fine teenage comedy, with well-rounded, intelligent characters, giving Broderick a great starring role. Some of the best scenes are formed around Bueller's ability to gleefully manipulate everybody and everything around him. Those side-splitting, thigh-slapping scenes have to be seen to be believed. Of course, he gets a little help from his friends (Sara and Ruck). John Hughes has become quite good at making teenage fare, that are both amusing and realistic portraits of intelligent ("News flash" guys this is not an oxymoron) teenage life. If there was ever a film to put on your "What-to-rent" list, this is it.
