Movie Info & Cast

Synopsis

Fathom Events and Paramount Pictures are bringing Pretty in Pink to select cinemas nationwide for a special limited engagement, which includes a featurette about bringing the film to the big screen.

Teen sensations Molly Ringwald (Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club) and Andrew McCarthy (St. Elmo’s Fire) drew rave reviews for their starring performances in this hit love story produced and written by John Hughes (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Planes, Trains, and Automobiles). Andie is a high school girl from the other side of town. Blane’s the wealthy heartthrob who asks her to the prom. But as fast as their romance builds, it’s threatened by the painful reality of peer pressure. From its bittersweet story to its hip New Wave soundtrack, the film features great supporting performances from Harry Dean Stanton, Jon Cryer, James Spader and Annie Potts.

I got my first date because of this movie so you won't see me giving it any less than three stars.

The movie made me so happy, and here I am back on the subway with Nerdo, and there's this jerk across the aisle who's like ancient, 30 at least, and he's got the nerve to look right into my see-through Madonna lace outfit. And he winks. Oh, barf- ola.

Although it is not a great movie, it contains some moments when the audience is likely to think, yes, being 16 was exactly like that.
