It's hard to imagine seeing a more enjoyable film at the festival. Described as The Breakfast Club with ghosts this is more than just a homage to Hughes, it also takes in the style of Ghostbusters, other seminal films of the 80s and even Glee. The overall story elements may not stand up to scrutiny but the smaller moments that make up the script are perfectly structured. Hilariously funny in places the film knows exactly what it's doing and how much cheese it can get away with.
There's always a reluctance to not give high scores to "fun" films but this was a 5 star experience that I can't wait to relive.
