I watched this movie at like 4 in the morning and let me tell you... I ended up staying up to watch it while it was on again like four hours later.
I think that everyone in this movie is just so beautifully cast. you have don diamont playing the dark yet handsome older guy who becomes attracted to rachel leigh cook who despite being younger can really hold her own. George C. Scott breaks hearts as the strict but loving grandpa who would do anything to help his granddaughter. Ally Sheedy shows her range by playing distant and often drunk mom.
