BLANE'S A PRETTY COOL GUY. ANDIE'S PRETTY IN PINK. AND DUCKY'S PRETTY CRAZY.
I was expecting a little bit too much from this 80's film. Whenever I think of an 80's movie and one of the main stars is Molly Ringwald who was supposedly very famous during the 80's I think that the movie is going to blow me away from start to finish, although this one just didn't. I believe it has to do with the fact that these characters aren't doing anything that the audience might consider memorable. I'll probably forget most of what happened in this movie sooner or later, cause nothing here is memorable.
Not to say the film is bad or anything,cause this movie isn't bad it just didn't meet my expectations.
The film is about Andie Walsh (Molly Ringwald) is a teenager who lives in the dingy part of town with her terminally underemployed dad (Harry Dean Stanton). She works at a record store with eccentric Ionia (Annie Potts) and is considered a misfit at her uppity high school, but somehow she rises above them all. Her oddball best friend, Duckie (Jon Cryer), is hopelessly in love with her, so he causes trouble for her romantic pursuits. When local rich kid Blaine (Andrew McCarthy) develops a fascination with her, they go out on a date together. Visiting the home bases of each social clique, they are basically ridiculed for their audacity to date one another. When Blaine eventually asks the delighted Andie to the prom, he is threatened by his rich friend Steff (James Spader). The romance versus high school social politics finally culminates at the big night of the prom.
The acting is still very good from all the actors in the film, I just didn't feel anything in this movie's run time or say hey that looks like fun. It came good for a laugh though. It was still very enjoyable. When the end credit's rolled and I saw James Spader's name i was like o my goodness cause my mother watches his show The Blacklist. It may have been funny but it didn't have any memorable funny one-liners or actions done by the cat.
The movie is very good but not very memorable I give Pretty in Pink a 3 out of 5.
