This film is the best movie to feature they actors now referred to as the "Brat Pack" (James Spader, Molly Ringwald, Andrew McCarthy). This is one of my favorite movies. At this point I would like to say that I am a red blooded male and my favorite film is "Fight Club". I do not like chick flicks but this film is pretty good. This high school drama/comedy is about Andie (Molly Ringwald), a beautiful and smart girl from a poor family (her father doesnt have a job). This may not seem like a big deal, but the fact that shes poor makes her a social outcast. She hangs out with people like her, including her best friend Duckie (John Cryer in his signature role). Duckie is COMPLETELY devouted to her. Anyone who watches them for a minute can tell that he is in love with her (and he even admits this) but she does not see it. She has eyes only for Blane (Andrew McCarthy in a role he was born to play). Blane is the Romeo to her Juliet. He is rich , attractive, popular, and has everything going for him. He too hangs out with his own kind because unlike her, he is rich and accepted by the in crowd. However, he is different from the crowd he hangs with. He is a kind, good hearted guy. He notices Andie's feelings, and indeed he finds himself returning her feelings. They fall for each other but discover that their frinds and the outside world will not let them be together. Both of their best friends hate the fact that Blane and Andie like each other (Blane's best friend Steph hates her b/c he wanted to hook up w/ her but she shot him down) and Blane ends up avoiding her, which breaks her heart. He had asked her to the prom but he takes it back , saying he already asked someone else. You can clearly tell that this is killing him and he wants to be w/ her but he knows the real world will not let them be together. Finally, at the prom, Blane confronts her and says one of the most romantic lines to her in any movie. He knows that he screwed up and that he loves her. She knows this too and runs after him and they kiss, ending up together. All in all, a good film. Very enjoyable.
