    Thank you so much for posting this. I was 6 years old when this movie came out and saw it in the movies with my older sister and her best friend. I absolutely love this movie!! We lived in Downey at the time and we thought it was so cool since we lived by Johnnies Broiler which is now Bob’s Big Boy 🙂 that was used for the Archie’s scene. Thank God for Netflix for bringing the memories back.

    Rest in Peace Corey Haim.

    What about the scene where Mercedes takes Les up on a hill/mountain where they are overlooking a city? That’s what I was trying to find.
