Added DiffLines:

* InformedAbility: Andie's sewing skills and fashion sense. Come on, that prom dress is hideous! And the fuchsia tights and baby pink shoes...Even in TheEighties that was a fashion "don't."


Added DiffLines:

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Test audiences didn't like the original ending where Andie and Duckie ended up together and preferred Andie to choose Blaine instead. Thus Kristy Swanson was cast to give Duckie someone to end up with.

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.
