This is by far my favourite film of this 80s highschool movies era. The dialogues are just very great, though there are some minor weaker, infantile moments as well, but hey it's about high school, and while on first it looks like a comedy foremost it's the more dramatic parts, especially the self reflexion of the students that definitely stays with me. When Estevez tells his story I always get the shiver. Also did and said some things in school, spured on by classmates or my teenish anger about anything, that are actually in contrast to my character (or so I hope at least ), though much lesser ones than what Estevez did. And this though I can't fully relate with any of them, cause my parents were very fine always, but I can relate to some elements of Hall and Estevez. I also agree that it improves on rewatches.
