Flick Pick: Pretty In Pink

Pretty In Pink
(Paramount, 1986)

Another trip through well-constructed Hughesian teen flicks, this one with a kicking soundtrack, a well-rounded cast, and Jon Cryer taking one for the team and not-getting-the-girl as a totally over-the-top Duckie. He's also notably one of the very few brat-packers with any long-term shelf life in the industry, and this flick goes a long way to showing why. Annie Potts is also a delight, her bit in Ghostbusters turning into this role, which turned into her long-term part on Designing Women.
