    Pretty in pink is a great comedy drama with Molly Ringwald from The Breakfast Club. The movie has
    a great screenplay and all of the characters are fascinating. This is one of the best movies of the 80's.

    More in depth than some of the other Hughes films, and more based on audience wants. Still its very heart touching and the tiny details are what makes it great.

    Typical John Hughes produced vehicle chugs along the predictable path. Molly Ringwald still shines in her plainly appealing way that entered into the halls of 80s iconography.

    I love this movie to death! Duckie is my favorite character ever, but i don't know why.

    Howard Deutch and John Hughes' "Pretty In Pink" is a serviceable 1980s teenybopper dramedy that delivers enough chuckles and smiles to surmount its lackluster ending.

    Slack and unconvincing throughout with the exception of Ringwald, who remains natural and appealing as the thin world of the film collapses around her.

    While the script contains trite and unbelievable dialogue, the superbly convincing performances make up for these faults.

    Delightful... The film is buoyed by a captivating performance by Ringwald, who has an unerring ability to share her character's emotions with an audience, as if we were eavsdropping behind her makeup mirror. [28 Feb 1986]
