A disappointing rewatch, I had a great memory of this movie. The whole thing feels contrived in order to preserve the final twist intact, not so much developing the characters. Overall it works, but with the knowledge of who Soze is, the house of cards crumbles.
This is way more enjoyable than I thought it'd be. Bueller's character is actually very nuanced, and not the egotistical teenager some see him as. His friendship with Cameron and love for Sloane are genuine : he wants to share a day with them, entertain them, knowing that soon they won't have this freedom. Some of the plot feels more childish, but it often hits home.
