Pretty In Pink

BBB.5

(out of 5)


John Hughes shows his softer side in this tender romance starring .  She plays a high school girl whose rough home life revolves around her single father () and his inability to keep a steady job.  She is in love with the school’s rich boy () but doesn’t think he will ever notice her, which complicates things for her best friend (), who secretly loves her but does not believe he has a chance. Classist stereotyping ruins the believably at times, particularly ‘s trademark role as a heartless snob who seems to have sold his soul for the good life, but otherwise it’s a sweet movie with engaging characters and a satisfying ending.
