Classic 80's movie!

Andie's (Molly Ringwald) a good student who develops a crush on Blane (Andrew McCarthy), the sensitive, well-born preppie. But Blane runs with a fast crowd of haughty rich kids, the kind of clique Andie and her new wavy best friend Duckie (Jon Cryer) can't stand. Going against her fretting father (Harry Dean Stanton), peer pressure and social expectations, she decides to date him. But their big plans for the senior prom ultimately fall apart when Blane heeds his friend Steff's (James Spader) warning to "quit slumming." Will Blane find the courage to claim what he really wants and give up the so-called friends he doesn't need? This classic 1980s teen film from the master of the genre, writer-producer John Hughes features plenty of great '80s pop tunes from the Psychedelic Furs, The Smiths, Echo and The Bunnymen, New Order, and more. The continued success of Hughes' films and actors ushered in the era of the "brat pack" and teen films as pop culture.

I have no specific reason, but I used to love this movie. I don't want to watch it now because I prefer to preserve it in my memory. I think the 80s could be pretty much summed up by just the cover image alone.

All I can say is that I thought the move was great but like all movies it needs to have more effort in to the story and a longer ending but I think I am a movie expert so I say a lot of things even if other people do not agree with me. I have had pros telling me that I should make a living out of it.

Pretty in Pink is the quintessential high school romance movie.  Molly Ringwald as Andie Walsh is the classic, angsty teen who is beautiful, vibrant, smart and funny...but sees none of it herself, which anyone who has been through high school can relate to.  So when a popular, handsome boy seems to take a liking to her, she can't help but be suspicious.  Ringwald's honest and charming performance has stood the test of time.  Hughes' characters are genuine and memorable.  …
