As many have already pointed out, this movie has a massive effect on me. I was almost the exact same age as the characters in the movie when I first saw it (and then watched repeatedly), living in a similar version of suburban hell replete with nice new homes and streets and not a darn thing for a young teenager to do but steal booze from the 'rents, try to hook up with similarly bored girls, and commit petty vandalism to a soundtrack of Cheap Trick, Van Halen and The Ramones. This movie, then and now, felt like a documentary to me and my friends rather than fiction, and, to this day, it is the only art of my era (along with the aforementioned music) that actually nailed the alienation we all felt.
