The other Andie.

John Hughes wrote Pretty in Pink specifically for Molly Ringwald after the pair made Sixteen Candles together. But the studio, Paramount, wanted the producers to look for a bigger name. Executive producer and screenwriter Hughes and director Howard Deutch offered the part to Flashdance star Jennier Beals, who turned it down. Thankfully, the pair went back to their original choice. Incidentally, Andie awesome thrift store aesthetic was based on Ringwald's real life personal style.

Movie Critic Richard Roeper Gets Suspended for Buying Twitter Followers

Just a few months after The New York Times broke the Harvey Weinstein sex scandal, the publication has broken another scandal wide open, which may have cost a prominent film critic his job.

Here's what Chicago Sun-Times editor-in-chief Chris Fusco said in a statement.

"We became aware over the weekend of issues relating to Rich Roeper's Twitter account. We're investigating these issues. We will not be publishing any reviews or columns by Rich until this investigation is complete."

7 Female-Centric Coming-of-Age Movies to Watch If You Loved ‘Lady Bird’

7 Female-Centric Coming-of-Age Movies to Watch If You Loved ‘Lady Bird’
It’s the honesty of Greta Gerwig’s “Lady Bird” that really makes the Saoirse Ronan-starring coming-of-age movie sing. Yes, it’s very funny and filled with enough genuinely great performances that it’s actually debatable which supporting star turns in the best work (it’s Laurie Metcalf, or maybe Beanie Feldstein, or possibly Tracy Letts), but what makes Gerwig’s movie such a gem is the honesty that infuses every part and every scene. Ronan’s ChristineLady Bird” McPherson is a work-in-progress, but she’s also kind of a jerk, and Gerwig never shies away from showing the angstier, angrier side of growing up.

So often, high school-set features tend to lean into the more fun side of those four years, building up to the big dance or the big test or the big graduation, and while Lady Bird is consumed with getting to the next step,

Asian World Film Festival Broadens Already-Wide Embrace

Georges Chamchoum has a simple mission: He wants to share the rich and varied offerings from Asian filmmakers with Hollywood players and beyond.

A cultural counter force to Washington isolationism, he has lined up a wide array of screenings, panels and tributes for the third annual Asian World Film Festival. The eight-day event kicks off Oct. 25 in Culver City and concludes Nov. 2, sponsored in part by Variety.

This year’s installment is the broadest yet in scope. Movies range from “Dearest Sister,” the first film from Laos submitted for a foreign-language Oscar, and

Little Gandhi,” Syria’s first entry in that category, to pioneering Hollywood drama “Joy Luck Club,” part of a beefed-up Asian-American focus.

Opening-night movie “Ayla: The Daughter of War” sets the tone. Directed by Can Ulkay, it centers on an orphan and a Turkish soldier during the Korean War and is Turkey’s official foreign-language submission in the Academy Awards.

Looking back at St. Elmo's Fire (1985)

by Eric Blume

Director Joel Schumacher’s St. Elmo’s Fire captures 1985 perfectly: the word “yuppie” had just come into vogue, and this film follows seven Georgetown students finding themselves lost after graduation. They’re all white, attractive, fairly affluent, and awfully boring, and nothing much happens in the movie. So why is it so damn watchable?

St. Elmo’s Fire is a curio from this era, because while it wasn’t a huge box office success, it’s an instantly-recognizable title after 22 years. This of course is due to the film’s actors: Rob Lowe, Demi Moore, Emilio Estevez, Mare Winningham, Judd Nelson, and Andrew McCarthy. Schumacher did manage lightning-in-a-bottle with that casting, and while very little about the film is objectively good, watching these actors near the start of their careers provides a kicky joy...

Pretty In Pink: Jon Cryer discusses its original ending

Kirsten Howard Jul 10, 2017

31 years on, Jon Cryer talks about the original ending of Pretty In Pink, and whether Duckie should have got the girl...

Pretty In Pink is still fairly beloved in its own way.

See related Fargo season 3 episode 1 review: The Law Of Vacant Places

The romantic tale of Andie (Molly Ringwald), a girl from the wrong side of the tracks struggling with an unemployed father and dealing with bullying from her more privileged high school peers who falls for the wealthy and preposterously-named Blane (Andrew McCarthy), is still considered one of director John Hughes' better efforts.

But the ending originally shot for the movie had Andie ending up with her melodramatic best friend Duckie, who either comes across as a hopeless romantic or classic stalker material, depending on your point of view.

Jon Cryer, who played Duckie in the 1986 rom-com, recently had a chat with Entertainment Weekly

Random Roles: Andrew McCarthy on Weekend At Bernie’s: “It’s the stupidest movie. I love it.”

Welcome to Random Roles, wherein we talk to actors about the characters who defined their careers. The catch: They don’t know beforehand what roles we’ll ask them to talk about.

The actor: It can be a bit daunting to meet the movie crush you’ve had for 30 years; there’s a lot of pressure, and what if they disappoint after all that buildup? But no worries if the object of your cinematic affection happens to be Andrew McCarthy, who is somehow as delightful in person as he is onscreen in required teen viewing like Pretty In Pink. After a lifetime in film, in recent years, McCarthy has transformed a passion for travel into a career, penning the 2012 memoir The Longest Way Home: One Man’s Quest For The Courage To Settle Down. He’s also turned his attention to the small screen, directing episodes of dramas ...

Andrew McCarthy is best known for starring in movies like Pretty In Pink, St. Elmo’s Fire, and Weekend At Bernie’s.

Club to talk with assistant editor Gwen Ihnat about his current career, which includes not only his writing but also directing for TV series like Orange Is The New Black and The Blacklist.

Odds And Sods: Andrew McCarthy gets why Pretty In Pink still resonates

He’s now a TV director and an award-winning travel writer, but Andrew McCarthy knows what his most memorable film role is, even 30 years later.
