    Holds up, thanks to Smith’s smartass dialogue (before all the bad imitations, some by Smith) and Jeff Anderson’s immaculate, noncommittal performance as Randal. Twenty-eight years later and his delivery of the line “I don’t know, I don’t watch movies” has lost no power.

    Best depiction of the transition between "I can do anything, I have my whole life ahead of me!" and "I've wasted my life, I can't do anything!" - ie, being 15 and being 25 - that I've ever seen. I keep trying to write more but I gush and sound ridiculous, because it's all so goddamn good.
