We see Molly Ringwald finally getting to kiss the boy she's been after since the film's outset.However this kiss doesn't look like it would have been particularly easy for the actors to pull off.Add all this to a pair of horrendously embarrassing grandparents, a foreign exchange student named Long Duk Dong, and we have the makings of a hilarious journey into young womanhood.The final shot of this film can in some ways mirror the difficulties of adolescence.The siblings have co-starred in nine other movies together: Class (1983), Grandview, U. (1989), Grosse Pointe Blank (1997), Cradle Will Rock (1999), High Fidelity (2000), Martian Child (2007), and War, Inc. The young cast full of so many extraordinary talents gives us one memorable scene after another.
