All the movies are great. The eighties was fun.

Why a cool punkish teen with a pink Kharmin Ghia and Harry Dean Stanton for a dad would want Andrew McCarthy as a bf is beyond me. And it's hard to forgive the Pysch Furs for re-recording "Pretty in Pink" for the movie. But I do, because they still rock my world.
