A comedy-drama concerning five high school students who bare their emotions during a nine-hour detention period in the school library. The confined situation unfolds like a drawn-out group therapy session. It is propelled mostly on caustic dialogue which becomes annoying at times. The ensemble acting, by a talented young cast, is commendable. Yet the film is padded and repetitious. Stars Emilio Estevez, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy.
