Pretty in Pink was a very important movie for me back in the day. Molly Ringwald’s character, Andie was a role model for those of us who didn’t quite fit in. But who can forget the guys? When I was a kid, I hated James Spader’s character, Stef. Now when I look back at the movie, I realize how amazing James was in that role. What young actors these days could play that character with the same louche appeal? I can’t think of any. Andrew McCarthy’s Blaine was the prince we all dreamed about, until he wasn’t for a bit, then he came to his senses at the end. He’s still the prototype for the cute, sensitive guy you really want to end up with once you gone through your bad-boy phase. This vid is a walk down memory lane for all of us who loved the boys of Pretty in Pink.
