YMMV / Molly Ringwald

  • Critical Dissonance: Her 1988 film For Keeps, while critically panned, was successful at the box office, given its low budget.
  • Deader Than Disco: She went from one of the 80's biggest stars to focusing on low-profile movies since Betsy's Wedding bombed. Worse, when her career tanked, so did her reputation. Today Ringwald is one of the most hated actresses of all time, and it is social taboo to admit to being a fan of hers either now or during her Glory Days.
  • Fallen Creator
  • Fan Hater / Internet Backdraft: Go ahead and say you like her on the Internet, or even in public. May God have mercy on your soul.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: She shares the same name with the title character of an American Girl film she co-starred in.
  • Never Live It Down: She's more notorious for her failure to maintain success than for her actual merits. In many ways, she's the poster child of washed-up teen stars, with her Jaded Washout tendencies not helping matters.
