A 1986 film starring Creator/MollyRingwald as Andie Walsh, a teenager with a crush on an upper-class boy, Blaine [=McDonough=] (Andrew [=McCarthy=]). When he turns out to reciprocate her feelings and they pursue a relationship, their respecive social circles show some resistance.

Andie lives on the WrongSideOfTheTracks with her unemployed, divorced father (played by Creator/HarryDeanStanton), for whom she cares almost as a mother would. Her best friend Duckie (Jon Cryer) is in love with her, but plays it off as a joke to maintain their friendship. The two of them are harrassed by the "richie" kids, Steff (Creator/JamesSpader), and Benny (Kate Vernon). Andie works for her older friend Iona (Annie Potts) at TRAX, a New Wave music store in Chinatown. Iona urges her to go to the prom. One of the Creator/BratPack movies. Written (but not directed) by Creator/JohnHughes.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: Even by 1980s teen dramedy standards, this is pretty damn 80s. So much that if people showed up dressed like these people in a movie today, the audience would assume the characters were satirizing the 80s.
