John Hughes is, of course, the king of the teen film; this is the jewel in his crown.
High school student Andie (Molly Ringwald, who else?!) finds herself infatuated with “richy” Blane (Andrew McCarthy) as her childhood friend Duckie (Jon Cryer) vies for her affection.
Silly names aside, all of these characters are endearing in their own way. If on first viewing you find the plot predictable I would remind you that this is the film all other teen flicks are based on.
It has the punchy soundtrack you would expect of the 1980s as well as the fashion sense.
