Shades of "Sixteen Candles"
on 9 March 2014
There have been lots of these coming-of-age movies. Each one differs a little bit by the era in which it is produced. This one rated PG-13 has the feel of an after school special. Everyone has an image of their ideal life; however it takes at night of Halloween hijinks for them to realize what they really want.
The film has many cute scenes. There is also potty humor. Innuendos and big chickens that explains where car hybrids come from. They threw in an asthmatic cat is a good addition to the mix.
I've seen better versions of this genre. However this is well done. Yet there is nothing exceptional. So get out your popcorn. Have a little fun. Then forget it.
