Episode 10: Pretty in Pink, or the Fantabulous Failed Emancipation of One Andie Walsh

Get ready for some disappointment in our younger selves, as we turn our attention to the bevvy of jerky dudes and unrealistic romance in John Hughes’s Pretty in Pink. Who are your top f**k, marry, kill James Spader characters? Why mar Annie Potts’s otherwise perfect Iona by making her fall for a bland 80s yuppie? What kind of fashion designer destroys two decent prom dresses to make a fancy potato sack? And why did we ever feel bad for Duckie? All we can tell you is that this is the episode where the die-hard romantics make themselves known.
