While the film may have a bit of 80's cheese, it is still in some ways culturally relevance. The high school stereotypes are still prevalent in this day and age, and it shows that all teenagers go through the similar struggles in their lives. It is also very realistic on how teenagers talk about their parents. They talk about all their parents flaws to feel rebellious, but there just hiding the fact that they will be the exact same way when they grow up. – Aaron Hatch6 years ago
You could even discuss the historical significance of the film. I read an article that in the 80s, divorce rates was increasing, which could explain why the characters feel distant towards their parents. Perhaps you could conclude the article with whether or not relationships with teens and their parents have changed. Just an idea. – Amanda Dominguez-Chio6 years ago
