Some Kind of Wonderful (1987) Review

A near-great John Hughes written production, very much like his other teen films at the time, Some Kind of Wonderful is perhaps a lesser extravagant or imaginative film from the writer, and director Howard Deutch does his best to capture the easy-going yet honest coming-of-age goodness. By no means is it original, and until its final thirty minutes does it truly take off. Once the typical elements are peeled back, however, Some Kind of Wonderful offers a somewhat refreshing and mature take on love and friendship in teenage wasteland, and one that would seamlessly connect to any teen watching nonetheless. Proof that John Hughes wrote some of the most inspiring stuff to teens in the 80s.

7.4/10
