An absolutely funny, knee slapping comedy I was delighted to discover.   Great exchange between the hateful, spiteful brat, Doyle, and Dutch; I couldn't stop laughing, nor could my friends.
Morals involved here; an insecure, lonely kid becoming a human being in just a thousand miles. Another great John Hughes Movie!
