I like this movie. Christian Slater is good at being a smart ass...but you can't help it but smile. He makes this movie very entertaining. Samantha Mathis is good too but at times I keep thinking she is Winona Ryder because her hair is as dark as hers. You have to be a fan of either actor or you probably won't like this movie. They do deal with some serious issues at school but you can understand where the kids come from and such.

Solid teen film
One-Line Film Reviews | Easton, MD | 07/23/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The Bottom Line:

Something of a cult classic, this film about a meek high school student who runs an illegal radio station after hours is not a great movie but it's a cut above the standard teen angst film and is a better use of your time than the more acclaimed Heathers.
