I wonder if anyone will get 100% no what we they guess? I know I must have had some wrong answers. It has been too long since I've seen it.

I didn't even get a percentage so I'm assuming I bombed it It said "You loved St. Elmo's Fire." It's been so long since I've seen it.

Those would probably be my two as well. Rob was cool and fun. Emilio was a stalker.

Ally Sheedy. Demi would of been too wild for me and Mare was kind of boring.

Emilio was my least favorite in this movie. His storyline was creepy and pretty random.

When it was released in June 1985, New York magazine’s David Denby said that “nobody above the moral age of 15” would enjoy watching the narcissistic exploits depicted by these seven up-and-coming actors
Couldn't be more wrong

Quote:
The head of Universal actually called me into his office, threw the script down, and said, “Joel, in the history of movies, you have managed to create seven of the worst people I have ever seen on a page.” He then went off and made Howard the Duck.
This made me laugh.

Prior to this, I don’t feel like there were stories being done about young people with real emotional adult issues.
Good point
Quote:
None of those [young adult] movies at the time got great reviews. But they became what they became because they were the first generation of films that people could take home on VHS. Young people could take ownership of us in a way that no generation ever did before.
I like this. It's so true.

Quote:
People love this movie, or we wouldn’t be talking about it 32 years later. It is very kitschy and it’s extremely dated. There is a lot of great stuff to hate-watch in it. But at the end of the day, when Billy Hicks gets on the bus and pulls away, you will cry.
Yep, I do cry.

It's kind of funny reading things that were negative about something when it came out only for that movie, in the decades since, to grow into a beloved classic. Critics and executives can and are so stupid a lot of the time.
