Young Andie Molly Ringwald is one of the not-so-popular girls in high school. She usually hangs out with her friends Iona Annie Potts or Duckie Jon Cryer. Duckie has always had a crush on her, but now she has met a new guy from school, Blane Andrew McCarthy. He's one of the rich and popular guys but can the two worlds meet?
The era of Molly Ringwald's profitable collaboration with writer-producer-director John Hughes Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club was at its peak with this 1986 film directed by Howard Deutch but in every sense part of the developing Hughes empire. Ringwald plays a high school girl on the budget side of the tracks, living with her warm and loving father Harry Dean Stanton and usually accompanied by her insecure best friend Jon Cryer. When a wealthy but well-meaning boy Andrew McCarthy asks her out, her perspective is overturned and Cryer's character is threatened. As was the case in the mid-'80s, Hughes who wrote the script and produced the film brought his special feel for the cross-currents of adolescent life to this story. In its very commercial way, it is an honest, entertaining piece about growing pains. The attractive supporting cast many of whom are much better known now does a terrific job, and Ringwald and Cryer have excellent chemistry. --Tom Keogh
