The sweetest young love story ever told, Pretty In Pink and also a classic Valentine Day tale, a story as old as time and just like with Romeo and Juliet, two families divided on the basis of a socio-economic class issue almost keep two star-crossed lovers apart. And while Romeo and Juliet decided to commit suicide to escape the horror of a parting too endless and painful to contemplate, the couple of this story who face some rough and bumpy courtship times manage to work things out. But, only because the wealthy boyfriend ignored the advice and the bar of his family to break, make and shape things for him and chose to look past the economic situation. The other situation which included one girl who real, worked at a record store and made straight A's, and to what the person of the girl really was. A bright, intelligent and lovely human being, who curious about how the rich live, but not after his money, and who even lectured her own best guy friend Duckie, at one point that refusing to accept the rich at face value and love them right where they are, is just as bad as them refusing to look at those not at that level of economic wealth as people too. Of course, it is true that good and bad people come from every gender, culture, country, and socio-economic background. Attitude is in the heart of the wearer.
One pink rift of a best friend, James Spader who plays an arrogant son of a rich family who initially finds great muse at keeping Andie and Blane McDonnagh (Andrew McCarthy), and even Director Howard Deutch proves through his portrayal of teenager, Andie (Molly Ringwald) that sometimes a girl on the other side is kept out of the realm of the upper social classes at time, simply on the basis of that. A caretaker of her special and small group of friends, she, Andie watches over them much like a mother hen. And Steff, who the exact opposite of the actor who plays his part, actually he started off with humble beginnings and still starring in films today, the son of school teachers took on any small job he could until he made his break in acting. And that some of the young actors of the film once comprised the brat pack children of the stage who seemed to drift from adolescent film to adolescent film, the real stars do not really seem all that clique.
The writer of the script, John Hughes, and the film director and producers smartly included the Rave-Ups. And clearly, the use of the music alone at the pop punk underground band club where Andie loves to hang out with her small and special group of highly distinct friends, her new rich boyfriend vows to spend equal amount of time in her world to his world. Although he is supposed to be more highly bred, his best friend is a cunning womanizer who has to finally face the fact that what disturbs him most about Andie is that for the first time he has met someone who does not want his money, and therefore he can't buy her.
One esoteric compassion of passionate tryst, fate soon to turn the pages of love for one Andy girl, not from a higher socio-economic class than her new boyfriend, he rejects her on the way to his journey from friends more rude than class, and while attributing some of his justification for rejecting her to her more beatnik way of life, he later recants. So, differences in social activity for the classes does not really seem a fast and hard rule to follow at all. Andie designs and remakes and sews a reconstruct of a gown for her prom dress. And when Blane sees her, he feels even more justified for his guilt at what he did to her. At the same time, Andie only wants the guy you only find once-in-a-lifetime, the one really not as much the abandoner as all of the other guys.
One girl who wore pink and went just to show them what they were not, such as gods put on the earth to bring no love, her good boyfriend finally gives his soothsaying corporate kid friend a Budhist sermon in that he tells him, "That's it. She thinks you're shit, and deep down, you know she's right." However, the punk rock, upper coming yuppie generation representation of the role of Mollie as a soulful and independent Andie, a girl who shied away from the glam girls of her high school, she demonstrated and put the blessing along with other young women of her era the approval for a female to stand apart from the group and forge a much more admirable character the appropriate way. The girls of the mold by contrast, seem more unkind, more cutting, more biting, and more insincere. Andie's rich boyfriend however does everything he can to remain polite and humble and to treat Mollie not so much as a poor girl he feels sorry for, but as a lady deserving of kindness and love.
