Finally...finally...an '80s campus comedy I can get behind. The #1 reason: it's funny, very funny. It's also about students who I can actually recognize from life; crass irresponsible, but legitimately trying to do the right thing. And the teachers are not just cruel and stuffy, but also legitimately morally compromised.
This is a relatable tale but it's also absurdist in the best way. There's a scene where the gang ices up the hallway to go sledding on, but they assure everyone it's all right; the ice is designed to go straight from solid to gas (which is called sublimation). A throwaway joke, but: can you really do that? That would be awesome.
A quick Internet search shows that dry ice sublimates, although it seems like that would get cloudy; maybe they could make the gas transparent? If you enjoyed that kind of digression, this movie is for you. You've never seen popcorn imbued with such righteous joy.
