This is the second time I have watched this John Hughes “classic” and to be honest, I have a lot of problems with this film.
I think some of the gender politics are repugnant. The Asian character is nothing but a caricature.
The whole premise of forgetting the main characters birthday, had no credibility at all. I just couldn’t get over this concete. Surely, when the date was set for the wedding, someone would have said “that’s the day after your birthday samantha.” but no her parents, her 2 siblings and both sets of grand-parents all forget. Sorry couldn’t get over this hurdle.
Should you watch this? John Hughes has far better Teen movies, go look them out.
