* LoveItOrHateIt: Ringwald is quite possibly the Marmite of the Creator/BratPack. Some believe she's legitimately good and underrated actress who deserves a larger following, while others consider her a needlessly hammy hack who became a victim of ridiculously overblown hype. There's no middle ground.

* MoneyDearBoy: In the past few years, her choice of roles has been questionable, to say the least. It's speculated by many that this the sole reason she appeared in ''Film/JemAndTheHolograms'' and ''Series/TheSecretLifeOfTheAmericanTeenager''.
* NeverLiveItDown: For starters, she's received a lot of flak for turning down ''Film/PrettyWoman''. Creator/StephenKing fans also hate her portrayal of Fran Goldsmith in the miniseries adaptation of ''The Stand''.
