A) I am honestly SO FUCKING SURPRISED there haven't been 100000 remakes of brat pack movies already. Like everything else is being remade, why haven't these? I am sure there is some kind of rights reason, but whatever.
B) It HAS been ripped off in 3489277489273938 in every single teen show ever. They ALL HAVE a detention bottle episode. The one that is clearly coming to mind for me is Degrassi, which was literally just shot for shot plot for plot TBC. Anywhoodles, cast away!!
