I think that for it to have the most impact on you though you have to watch it when you're growing up; when you're about the same age as the characters. I really did enjoy it, but for me it wasn't as "life changing" as I've heard some people describe it. The things the movie tries to teach you and show you are things I already knew. If I ever have kids I'm going to make them watch it when they're about 15 or 16 and struggling with finding themselves. It'll help and affect them a lot more than it did me.
That said; still an excellent movie and one I'd recommend.
