knocked up teen melodrama
High school student Darcy Elliott (Molly Ringwald) from the small town of Kenosha, Wisconsin is set to start studying journalism at the University of Wisconsin while her boyfriend Stan Bobrucz is going to Caltech. They intend on doing the long distance dating. Their plans take a turn when they get pregnant.
It’s two years after Pretty in Pink where Molly Ringwald solidified herself as the queen of the teen comedies and John Hughes’ muse. It’s also two years before Betsy’s Wedding. It’s her knocked-up teen phase. She’s great. She has the full capacity of her charms. Her male lead Randall Batinkoff is at a lower level. He doesn’t have quite the acting power. Director John G. Avildsen is going for the grittier teen melodrama with humor. The subject matter clashes with the public’s preconceived notions about Ringwald. My biggest problem comes from the parents. No matter how much they disagree, I can’t take them abandoning the young couple at such a crucial time. I understand the planned progression for the characters but their actions really bug me. I kept thinking that they could do better and the couple have enough resources to achieve some of their previous plans. It’s kinda funny that the mean girl kept calling Darcy stupid. The first time is mean-spirited but the second one is true. With some support, these kids would have smoother sailing and much of the difficulties are self-inflicted.
Underrated 80’s Movies?????
I thought this movie was OK, but if you read a previous user review about underrated 80s movies, you may be thinking the same thing I am. Ferris Bueller, The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, and Sixteen Candles???? Underrated???? Did this person live under a rock? These movies were HUGE!!!! Who underrated them? I just watched the Oscars(2010) and they did a tribute to John Hughes (the director of those four movies)and all of those movies were highlighted with many clips. Those movies defined a generation. The only other movie mentioned that was not a Hughes movie was Better Off Dead, which was also great, but the thing that the previous reviewer seemed to miss out on was that Hughes was a Genius and “For Keeps” was NOT a Hughes movie and has no place being mentioned with them.
