Pretty in Pink

1. One of the best movies ever.
2. What is more fun than watching Pretty in Pink and saying every line along with them?
3. Andrew McCarthy = Hot.
4. James Spader = Best Villian Ever.
5. When I watched the movie as a teenager, it always pissed me off that she had a car.
6. The high school kids all look like they are 35 and I don't really care.
7. The "richies" were some sort of super-special evil - no ambiguity there.
8. I love that there was a whole big scene of her designing and actually making her dress - that there was that much time devoted to a creative endeavor. Same as in "Some Kind of Wonderful" in which the almost-as-cute-as-Andrew-McCarthy Eric Stoltz makes a painting and uses it to woo the popular girl.
9. I always hoped that after that kiss at the end they went back into the prom and told everybody to suck it.
10. Andrew McCarthy = Hot.

Every time I watch it (and that's ... a lot), I hope that somehow Andrew McCarthy will show up at prom not looking like he's having a coke-hangover and conditioner malfunction at the same time.

And let us have a moment of remembrance for the brilliance of Duckie.

Apparently they reshot the end of that movie. Supposedly she went with Duckie but people didn't like that so they had them come back to reshoot the ending. Andrew McCarthy was filming some war movie at the time and had completely shaved his head so the conditioner malfunction was actually a WIG!

... and then they re-re-shot the ending and called it Some Kind Of Wonderful ...

I really like to think that there is only one possible ending to this story, so I am ignoring what Heather said.

I believe the Andrew McCarthy war picture Heather is talking about is called Don't Ask, Don't Tell.

The most important thing about Pretty in Pink is:
11. IT MAKES ME THINK OF ROBIN!!!

RJA said...

Batman's sidekick?

Robin said...

HEY!!! I'm the Robin it makes you think of! Awww Shucks, and ditto. I am currently in the possesion of a Netflix copy of Some Kind Of Wonderful, having just sent back Pretty In Pink. I'm trying to indoctrinate Abby before she starts rolling her eyes at movies I want her to watch. AND......you're crazy if you think Andrew McCarthy is hotter than Eric Stoltz. My heart still beats fast for ES.
