The sound finally gets fixed. John Hughes is acknowledged as the writer of everything while disagreements are had over the best film he directed. The science in Weird Science gets disputed when computers are given too much credit. A distinct lack of tits is noticed. Jim insists on bringing Kevin Bacon into the equation again. Matthew Broderick gets a pass. Steve Martin doesn’t get a pass. The film soundtracks are given high honours while date rape trounces any other possible suggestion. Harrowing tales of bullying and injustices are recounted. Ally Sheedy easily beats out Molly Ringwald. John Hughes gets diagnosed with an odd form of Tourettes. Home Alone 2 becomes a drama about juvenile court after two on-set deaths and continuing violent behaviour. St Elmo’s doesn’t catch fire thus ruining expectations. A moral message is given because knowing is half the battle. Empty promises of Facebook pages are made. Ben Affleck is the bomb, yo!
