Mike Chewbacca: It's a great movie for its time, but it doesn't hold up well in the modern high school era. I mean, Brian brought a flair gun to school to kill himself and the school responds by having him serve one Saturday school detention? Nowadays, he'd be (rightly) put in a psychiatric hold for a while until they're sure he's no longer a threat to himself and/or others.gunned down by a barrage of bullets from the local swat teamDMZ DEATH: I read a quote recently that was so true. If that movie took place today, the kids would have their noses stuck in their Iphones and never would have talked to each other.Eh, the movie was never realistic anyway. I like the movie, but I never thought for one second a real Saturday school detention would play out that way.
frepnog: mjbok: frepnog: add that to the fact that the film is so farking WHITEWASHED that it is ridiculous.How is it ridiculous? At the time the movie came out I was in high school and there were two African Americans in a school of about 1200.in every school in America? Come on. Those darkies sure went to school SOMEWHERE in the 80's.In the film, even the damn JANITOR was white. I live in bumfark AL, graduated high school in 1990 at a predominately white high school in a predominantly white area in collard field, AL and even our janitor was a black fella.
Englebert Slaptyback: Target BuilderEnglebert Slaptyback: What sexual assault would that be? Bender/Judd Nelson was the one under Claire/Molly Ringwald's desk. The athlete (Estevez) was sitting next to her.Wasn't he in detention for duct taping some kids ass in the locker room?I didn't read any sexual angle into that...
Englebert Slaptyback: Target BuilderWell - except for the sexual assault by the star athlete.What sexual assault would that be? Bender/Judd Nelson was the one under Claire/Molly Ringwald's desk. The athlete (Estevez) was sitting next to her.
Englebert Slaptyback: Also, the list author is a loser for not including Principal Vernon.[noncon.files.wordpress.com image 600x330]Don't you forget about me or you'll get the horns!
TigerzDad: interestingly, the kids' offenses in the movie would result in arrests, expulsion, and maybe even jail now.Get off my lawn!
