Limelight's Review of Pretty in Pink

Posted Aug 13th, 2018


Overall Score





Pretty in Pink is a John Hughes classic with a fantastic soundtrack and quirky characters. Molly Ringwald plays relatable teen Andie, a girl from the wrong side of the tracks who falls for Blane, a rich kid played by 80's heartthrob Andrew McCarthy. The young couple from two different worlds try to make it work, but peer pressure and class tension conspire to tear them apart. James Spader is believable as the villain, Steff, Blane's toxic best friend. Annie Potts makes a dramatic impact with her stylish costumes and zany single life as Andie's unconventional boss and confidant, Iona. Andie's best friend, Duckie, played by John Cryer is a lovable combination of heartbreaking and hilarious in his earnest pursuit of Andie's love. Duckie's showstopping lip sync performance at the record store is an iconic must-see. This sweet, funny romance makes a great date movie or rental for teen slumber parties.
