Re-Viewed Movie Review: Pretty in Pink

Once upon a time Molly Ringwald played this girl that all the boys lusted after and was getting all this pressure from adults to go to the prom. She also wore pink ALL THE TIME.

Jon Cryer is her friend and "loves" her so much that he stalks her. He bugs her all the time and never gets the hint that he's the poster boy for "friendzone".

James Spader (who was very sexy, but also kind of a dick) is also into Molly. She thinks he's a piece of shit, but he's secretly in love with her (you can totally see it in his eyes).

You see, Molly's got a crush on Andrew McCarthy, who's a "richie", but she's from "the wrong side of the tracks". Their high school is a total class war!

Andrew grows a pair, though, and finally asks her out. Oh, and at their school all the rich kids look like yuppies and all the poor kids dress like Judd Nelson in 'The Breakfast Club'.

After literally two dates, not only are they going to prom together, but they're also "in love". Nevermind that they're in high school and they know jack shit about each other.

Andrew succumbs to peer pressure and backs out of taking Molly to the prom. So she RUINS a perfectly awesome vintage prom dress to make something that was fugly even for the 80s.

She goes to prom alone, but runs into Jon and they decide to do that lame friend-date thing. Then Molly sees Andrew, he gives her some line, and she ditches her friend for some asshole who dumped her.

And even though Jon has loved/stalked Molly for the whole movie - and still doesn't get how creepy his behavior was - he totally rebounds with Buffy the Vampire Slayer (who is totes wearing pink!)

And Molly ends up with Andrew. Personally, I would have not gone to prom, but instead hate-fucked James before graduation and then gone to fashion school in London where my style is appreciated.
