Pretty in Pink

Watched Pretty in Pink the other night with #3.   Takeaways:

  • James Spader – wow
  • #3: “Hey, that girl (Molly Ringwald) is on Secret Life of American Teenager.  She’s old.”  Me: “Wha-???  She’s MY age.”  #3: smiles
  • Andrew McCarthy has a tiny mouth and does not move it when he talks.
  • Note to self:  show #3 pictures of James Spader from Pretty in Pink AND from Boston Legal.  Discuss.
  •  Me, to #3 and #2 who has walked in: “You recognize Ducky, don’t you?  Well, don’t you?  He sounds exactly the same.”  #2 and #3, after listening and watching intently: “We give up.”  Me: “He’s on Two and a Half Men – Charlie Sheen’s brother.”  #2 and #3:  “No, that’s not him.”
  • #3: “Mom, tell me everyone in this movie that’s in the bratty bunch.”  Me:  “You mean the brat pack.”  #3:  “Whatever, same thing.”
  • What is up with the creepy stare Andrew McCarthy does when he’s being intense?  Is that some kind of method acting?
  • Loving the music!  Kids are unimpressed.  I tell them I had this TAPE and listened to it non-stop.  Even less impressed.
  • Still a classic!

  1. Second best Psychadelic Furs song, behind “Ghost in You”.

    James Spaders’ best line EVAR was delivered in this movie, “why don’t you take a shower Blaine, you look like shit”.
