My Favorite Movie of All Time!
25 April 2003 | by (Birmingham, AL) – See all my reviews

I love this movie. Let me tell you why. First off, the cast: Molly Ringwald, Andrew McCarthy, Jon Cryer, James Spader, Annie Potts, etc all bring their own special something to the movie. Jon Cryer in particular is perfect for the character of Duckie, an angst-ridden teen who yearns for Andie (Molly Ringwald). They had a special showing of this movie in a theater in Orlando that I went to, and Duckie still to this day, had the whole audience laughing.

I definitely recommend the soundtrack. It seems like every time I watch this movie (and I've seen it so many times) I find something new about it that I like even more. It's just such a cool movie about being independent and your own person. This is Molly's best role yet. Yes, her fashion is very outdated, but you have to realize that this was the 80's and Molly was trying to show her own uniqueness.

I love the fact that Andie works at a record store, Trax, with punked-out Iona (Annie Potts)who is her confidant and funny to boot. The record store seems like a place you would find one day and just feel special for knowing it's there. I love her pink car. I love the club they go to and the Rave-Ups that play on-stage.

In conclusion, this is a fabulous movie. Especially if you love the 80's!
