It def holds up and it's something you can relate to when you're 8 (the 1st time I watched it) or 32 like I am now. Those fears are very real and something we all relate to. It holds up great, even after 25 years or however long it's been, it seems to have the same flavor as the first time. I guess it doesn't really come to mind in the "best movies ever" conversation..... But like you, if its on and I'm flipping channels, I have to stop and watch it and that says a lot.

It would be more famous and played on TV more if they had pulled back on the cussing a lot and it could have gotten at least a PG 13 rating. Being rated R and being kind of a kids/teen movie really hampers it IMO. I loved it. My daughter loves it.
