    Loved the dumping on St. Elmo’s Fire. I hated Rob Lowe in that film myself.

      It’s a terrible film. It’s not just Rob Lowe, he’s exceptionally obnoxious in the film but pretty much every character is obnoxious and unlikable. I had never seen the film until the late 90’s. I always thought it was a John Hughes film because of the cast. I went in thinking it was gonna be good.

    They really get very emotional over some films they hate. And yes, St. Elmo’s Fire was incredibly offensive. Worst of all, there wasn’t a single character that was even remotely likable. John Hughes would never make a movie like this, because all the young characters in his films are 3-dimensional, likable, and very smart.

      It’s a shame that John Hughes will later make family friendly comedies after Home Alone.

    Shame, I quite like St. Elmo’s Fire as a guilty pleasure.
