      Joe Clay Times (UK) [Pretty in Pink] has a storyline as old as cinema itself, but is testament to his uncanny ability to capture what it’s like to be 16 and in love. Mar 28, 2023 Full Review Derek Malcolm Guardian The film looks like nothing so much as a very shrewd compendium of what the market requires. Pretty In Pink is a teenage version of those wrong side of the tracks romances of some 30 years ago, impeccably dressed in mid-eighties clobber. May 20, 2021 Full Review Nigel Andrews Financial Times Neither author Hughes nor director Howard Deutch can stop the needle getting stuck in a too-familiar groove. May 13, 2020 Full Review Grant Watson Fiction Machine There is strong work among the supporting players: while Ringwald and McCarthy are amiable enough, other performers around them constantly threaten to steal the limelight. Rated: 7/10 Sep 29, 2021 Full Review Roger Moore Movie Nation Is this a "cult film" that deserves to be one? I don't think so. Rated: 2/4 Mar 13, 2021 Full Review Sean Collier Box Office Prophets The fond memories of Pretty in Pink were genuinely earned. Rated: 6/10 Feb 8, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews

      Sam L Music highschool drama, makes you wonder what life would be like in the 80s for you in hs. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/05/24 Full Review Christian K Enjoyed it for its era specific charms. Unfortunate when the selected love interest is so boring and unremarkable. At the end she took 2 good dresses and combined them to make an ugly one. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/19/24 Full Review Audience Member I like this movie, but I wish Andie ended up with Duckie at the end. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/04/24 Full Review Eliza O I love it so much. One of my favorite movies. Please watch is you love love. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/21/23 Full Review Jack O I don't know about this but I gotta say that Pretty in Pink is quite a good film for an 80's film as you all may know that I'm a huge fan of 80's films and 80's songs. I've heard that it's famous, well, for the most part for being a cult classic because of they're have some good tunes like Pretty in Pink by The Psychedelic Furs and If You Leave by OMD aka. Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark. The script is written by "Brat Pack" director, John Hughes and it's kind of a Cinderella story about a High school girl named Andie Walsh played by a really young, Molly Ringwald who lives with her father played by Harry Dean Stanton. Then Duckie played by "you know him from Two and a Half Men", Jon Cryer is in love with her, but is afraid to tell her how he truly feels. Steff played by James Spader who is secretly in love with Andie and Blane played by Andrew McCarthy who is Steff's best friend and eventually asks Andie out for the prom. So the whole thing is about that she must choose between the affections of dating her childhood sweetheart or a rich but sensitive playboy. I don't know what I like about this movie but all I can say that the ending is disappointing. I was expecting more from it but after I watched it the day after, I decided to watch it again and I kind of got over it but I still think that the end is disappointing. Aside from that, the film itself is cool and I liked it. One thing I like is that Jon Cryer's character "Duckie" is dancing while lipsyncing to "Try a Little Tenderness" by Otis Redding. That scene is amazing! Now for a Cinderella story, it's quite simple. I mean, Molly Ringwald plays this Cinderella kind of character, Jon Cryer's character is kinda like a sidekick kind of character, Jaq. Andrew McCarthy's character, Blane is Prince Charming for the most part because of his charming personality. James Spader is like this evil stepmother but an evil stepfather kind of character who is cruel to Andie. Well, that's is a perfect way to describe this coming-of-age tale of Cinderella's version of Pretty in Pink, in the teenage way. I would definitely recommend this movie for those who are a fans of 80's comedies especially dramas and all the genres. The film is a good coming-of-age comedy drama film for it's good 80's tunes and a bittersweet story to come by. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/29/23 Full Review Grace H Thin characterization and thin plot. No surprises here. Molly Ringwald being the 80's flicks it girl is fun and cute Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/10/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
