Enjoyable enough teen rom-com from writer John Hughes, though, and this only after my first viewing, not a favorite of mine of his. Still, for the most part I liked the core cast and thought it had its moments. However, this is near the bottom of John Hughes’ brilliant career in the 1980s. **3.5/5**
You’re ashamed to go out with me.
Andie Walsh (Molly Ringwald) is different to most kids at school. Being solely raised by her unemployed father, Jack (Harry Dean Stanton), and dressing in hand made clothes, she’s very much from the wrong side of the tracks. It’s tough in school as Andie and her pals are looked down on by the more wealthy students who make up the majority of the student body. With the prom on the horizon, Andie is feeling a little more bluer than normal, but hope comes in the form of Blane McDonough (Andrew McCarthy), a so called rich kid, who in spite of peer pressure asks Andie to the prom. This is something that alienates Andie and Blane from their so called friends.
As it turned out, “Pretty In Pink” was another in the line of John Hughes films that really hit the mark with the teenagers of the time. In fact it’s fair to say it impacted with almost everyone who had suffered a less than straight forward climb through some angsty teenage years. It’s not a perfect piece by any stretch of the imagination, for at times it’s twee and at others a little trite, it is nevertheless a finely crafted piece that deals with teen perils and the ugliness of class division. Unfortunately the class divide is something that rarely gets associated with the pic, because focus tends to be drawn to the love story at its heart. Which is a shame, because although audience expectation will undoubtedly be met in that department, Hughes has plotted it nicely to make a valid point. There is also the real notable thread of the single parent here, where the single parent is a man and a man who is unable to break free of the escalating distress caused by the break up of his marriage to Andie’s mother. The two best serious scenes in the film both involve the father/daughter axis, where both Ringwald and H.D. Stanton are simply terrific. Comedy relief comes in the form of Andie’s best pals, Duckie (Jon Cryer our hero) and Iona (Annie Potts), with both characters neatly inserted into the structure of the piece. While the direction from Howard Deutch is careful and brings about reality based performances from the predominantly youthful cast.
Containing a kicking 1980s soundtrack from the likes of “New Order”, “Echo And The Bunnymen”, “Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark” and “The Psychedelic Furs”, “Pretty In Pink” is a special movie on the CV of John Hughes. It will not be special to all comers, but for many, myself included, it strikes a mighty chord, one that was first heard back in the 1980’s and for sure can still be heard today. 8/10
Romantic comedy about young love.
Writer John Hughes has the 80’s pegged. But this story could have been set in the 50’s or 60’s and still worked well. That is why I think this movie is so relevant. Devotion, friendship, and self worth are quizzed. The young actors were better than expected. I have watched this over a dozen times and I don’t care if some people refer to this as a “chick flick”.
A young girl falls in love with a boy from the other side of the tracks. Problems occur when his peers think the object of his desires is socially beneath him.
Molly Ringwald was very good. Andrew McCarthy and Jon Cryer seemed to feel their part more than the rest of the cast. But James Spader was such a realistic jerk, you want to get up and punch his face in. Harry Dean Stanton and Annie Potts play the adult roles of substance. Have you ever seen Stanton so sympathetic?
A very upbeat soundtrack keeps the movie flowing and helps you feel the atmosphere. Don’t write this off as just another teen movie. Highly recommended.
A movie that sticks to your heart
There’s nothing complex about the setup of Pretty in Pink: poor girl from the literal wrong side of the tracks falls in love with a wealthy, popular pretty boy who’s family and friends disapprove of her. Yet, Hughes brings an emotional rhythm and vulnerability to this film that raises it to iconic status. Ringwald doesn’t appear to be the type that would win the hearts of three different men with her unflattering old lady clothes (though I do love the use of pink and her choice of accessories) but her character Andie has a resilient spirit and inner beauty that outshines many of her peers . Duckie is fantastic comic relief and very quotable but also heartbreaking as he endures the coming of age trial of unreturned love and irresponsible dependency. Blaine has a very relatable character arc as he is forced to navigate the choice of peer and family approval versus the bravery of standing by what his heart knows is right. And Steff is a scene-stealing, gorgeous villain. It has a great soundtrack and an atmosphere that leaves me nostalgic for a time that is not my own.
