Pretty in Pink (1986)

Paramount Pictures
Directed by Howard Deutch
My rating: 2 stars out of 4
(DVD, Paramount)

High schooler Molly Ringwald lives in the poor part of town with her good-natured but deadbeat dad. Her classmates tease her about her homemade clothes and she worries about a getting a date to the prom. Ignoring the pleas of her best friend Jon Cryer who also happens to be in love with her, she goes out with a well-dressed "rich kid". Cryer is devasted and Ringwald falls in love. There are many predictable complications, but it all works out in the happy ending. More John Hughes tripe set to a trendy soundtrack and scenes in a record store.
