'Pretty in Pink' to Return to Theaters for 30th Anniversary

14 January 2016 5:32 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The 1986 romantic comedy Pretty in Pink turns 30 this year. Those who weren't around to live through the days of big shoulder pads and the perfectly-captured teen love angst of mid-1980s era John Hughes films can catch this classic from his repertoire when it hits select theaters nationwide next month. Those that saw it the first time around can wax nostalgic about the wonders of Dippity-Do in maintaining budge-proof high coifs, perhaps think of one's own questionable teen love choices and revisit one of the "30 Greatest Rock & Roll Movie Moments. »

The Definitive Romantic Comedies: 20-11

9 January 2016 4:05 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

So, we’ve arrived at the top 20, slowly creeping toward those films that are exactly what a romantic comedy should be. We’ve seen films that fall into the category, but lean more toward other genres. We’ve seen romantic films that are funny enough to be comedies, but don’t entirely represent the spirit of the rom-com, despite being brilliant films. Now, we form a clearer picture of what a romantic comedy is. Not all of the films in this section are necessarily “good,” but they’re all iconic, definitive romantic comedies (hence their inclusion). Memorability does not necessarily come partnered with quality. It means right place, right time.

Tom Hanks had been the leading man in romantic comedies before (e.g. Splash). But the same year he took home his first Oscar (Philadelphia), he also starred opposite Meg Ryan in this »
