Pretty In Pink
the worst of the hughes films that i’ve seen, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. plus, hughes didn’t direct this one so it’s not purely his work. this one is probably the worst because i’m not a girl and this film is much more of a girl’s film than his other pre-1900 works. i think he does a good job of capturing some of the typical concerns, crises, and triumphs of a teenage girl, but it’s less relatable than something like the breakfast club. the ending is cheesy (though less cheesy than 16 candles), but i think most of his endings could be considered a varying degree of cheesy. plus, you could always just blame it on the director – deutch. overall it’s decent, but a bit girly, heavy and dated.
