"Script duly credited, it's nevertheless hard to imagine the film working successfully with anyone other than Matthew Broderick as the titular protagonist. Asked to be challenging, off-putting, spoiled yet irresistible, likable, and worth rooting for, Broderick somehow is so, never seeming the colossal dick he deserves to be. It's crucial to what Hughes has in store for us, but no less remarkable that Broderick pulls it off."
