"Pretty in Pink" may not be John Hughes' best movie nor is it his worst. This film is one of his more dated ones, but it is still entertaining and fun. Molly Ringwald stars as the main character, Andie Walsh, and does very well. Her character is well developed and extremely relatable to many teenagers. Jon Cryer's supporting character, Duckie, provides laughs and is also well-written. Cryer brings great enthusiasm to his role and does a good job. Th acting from the rest of the group is nothing special, but they do do good enough to bring their characters to life. This movie has it's sappy teenage drama moments, but also has a lot of wit and charm. Hughes was able to write a story that takes common conventions of the teen drama and make it have more substance that other films like it. This film is a great nostalgia movie for anyone who lived through the 80s. The story is good. With plenty of high school drama and just the right amount of humor, "Pretty in Pink" does well to serve up a sample of what high school can still be like in today's world. It may play off a lot of clichés and not be perfect, but it can make the viewer happy. Overall, I give this film a 7/10.
