I mean, how underrated is this? It’s just so bold an wild and fun.
At first you think you’re basically watching a teen comedy and then it sweeps you off your feet in the second half. Obviously it’s a bit dated in some regards, but it’s so irresistibly entertaining. The perfect combination of light and dark.

The most interesting way to interpret this...
Michael is a victim of abuse. His emotional development stops at 15. He's incapable of forming healthy relationships because of his childhood experiences that he has falsely classified as love.
Hanna is a monster, partly responsible for the distant relationships of Michael's future. Michael only gets some true redemption when he finally opens up about his adolescent experiences to his daughter.
