EIGHT DAYS A WEEK (1997):


Just watched this one again recently after not having seen it in awhile. It's a good funny teen comedy. And it's definitely a throwback to teen movies of the 80's considering some of it's content is obviously directly influenced by them. A couple movies that came to mind while I watched this were "Say Anything" and "Pretty in Pink." But it's not a bad movie because of this, it is quite good actually if you don't mind slightly perverted teen comedies. I especially like the grandfather and Catherine Hicks as the horny middle-aged widow. But almost all the characters are very funny in their own way. Anyway, if you have't seen this, you should check it out.

Saw this in the theaters when it was released. Finally, have a copy of it on DVD today.

First two years maybe, but even then there was something of a 'hangover' element to them. The enthusiasm and optimism was really draining fast.

"You can get a Logan comment! 'One Wild Night' was the last Hughes teen movie, yet for some reason it got almost no fanfare when it came out. That shows just how passe teen movies had become by the end of the 80's."

Hey, how do you quote lines from other posts here? Anyway, in response to that Logan comment, yes teen movies had run their course by the end of the '80s. I kind of felt bad about that because I really loved most of the ones that came out back then, not so much the ones that came later though, just some, but that's the point I wanted to add. By the end of the '90s, all of a sudden, it seems like teen movies started to make a comeback e.g. Can't Harldy Wait, 10 Things I Hate About You, She's All That and they've been getting produced again ever since. With all the horror, comedy and drama remakes these days, I'm surprised there have been no teen movie remakes and glad too. There's plenty of new ones anyway.

The teen movies that came out in the 90's had a more knowing, cynical quality to them. It was like, "Hey, we're doing a teen movie." Whereas, in the 80's it was more, "Hey, we're doing a movie for young people." The teen movies that came later were drawing on (and referencing) the conventions that had been laid down before, but the previous teen movies that had laid down those conventions originally did so without even realising it.

I agree that some of the later movies were great. And I've said it before, but I'll say it again: 'Heathers' was to the teen movie what 'Airplane' was to the disaster movie - the final nail in the coffin.

[to quote you hit the quotation marks in the top right of the post you want to reference]
