"Think everyone over 17 has forgotten what it's like to be 16? Filmmaker John Hughes (Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Pretty In Pink) hasn't. Now Hughes delivers another funny, savvy, crowd pleasing look at adolescence in this story about a high school misfit (Eric Stoltz, Mask), who falls so head over heels for the senior class siren that he's blind to the charms of his beautiful and devoted best pal (Mary Stuart-Masterson, Fried Green Tomatoes). Some fun, some heartache, Some Kind of Wonderful!"--Container.

This is one of the least-known movies written by John Hughes. It has much in common with the hit Pretty in Pink, and I've read that Some Kind of Wonderful was an attempt to rewrite the wrong of Pretty in Pink's ending, which was changed to appease test audiences. If you are a fan of teen movies, give this one a chance, and if you like Pretty In Pink, you're bound to enjoy this, too. Some Kind of Wonderful is rated PG-13.

Lesser known John Hughes penned romantic 80's flick. I like it but it isn't quite on the same level as his bigger hits (Breakfast Club, 16 Candles, Weird Science, etc). Similar theme of cliques and loser-ish character finding unexpected love interest.
