After seeing the "Breakfast Club" I was anxious to see more from the era and from the brat-pack. When I stumbled upon this I was happy to be greeted by the "pack" once again, but sadly in much less than what the "Breakfast Club' was. The flow of the story was messy and it was hard to be drawn to any one character's side in the battle for independence. Good reunion, but sad entry into the pack's collection.
Demi Moore plays one of the most over-the-top characters ever, either croaking about her dying "step-monster" in every scene, or saying some of the most asinine things not even the most moronic Real Housewife would say. It was hard to take anything in this film seriously. Andrew McCarthy was pretty good though.
Not a good movie, but an entertaining one, and it bears noting that Kevin is me. Just straight up me. Joel Schumacher went to the future and tracked my life and was like "I want to make this guy a character in a movie, which I will go back to the '80s to make," and then he did that. Seems like a convoluted way to write a character but we cannot attempt to comprehend the workings of the mind behind "Batman and Robin."
