Oh. Em. Gee.
Remind me why we liked this movie? I watched it for the first time in 15+ years and can I just say, this is the least romantic, most horrifying example of teenage toxic relationships in 80s movies history?
Let me explain: boy likes girl. boy woos girl. boy’s mean friends tease girl. girl stands up for herself and leaves the situation. boy woos girl less energetically. boy moves on to ignoring girl. boy lies to girl about a fake prom date. girl says kiss my butt and goes to prom anyway rocking the worst prom dress i’ve ever seen. boy sees girl, boy blames girl for not “believing in him”, tells her he won’t apologize, and then says “I love you.” And She Goes To Him!!! WTF, Molly?
The only part of the movie worth watching:
K’s rating of Pretty in Pink: 1/10 mangoes
C’s rating of Pretty in Pink: 7/10 mangoes (Et tu, C?)
