As far as I'm concerned, PRETTY IN PINK is the definitive guide to the classification of high school boys. Sure, fashion and hairstyles have changed (was Andrew McCarthy's hair ever cool?), but the universal truth of the film remains: if you're a teenage dude, you're either a Duckie or a Blaine.

The Duckies of the world are typically adorable and goofy, but they're just never gonna make it out of the friend zone. The Blaines, on the other hand, were born to be hot and popular, so of course they take everything for granted and don't appreciate the awesome, amazing girls right in front of them. In other words, dating in high school sucks.

Fortunately, PRETTY IN PINK channels that suckage through Molly Ringwald, light of my life, and wraps it all up in a fabulous '80s package. The music! Iona's wardrobe! Iona's hair! James Spader! The prom dress! Ok, well, not so much the prom dress. This film set the standard for teen movie cliches and created teams way before Edward and Jacob.

Come dressed in your finest pink ensemble (bonus points if you sew it yourself) and start practicing your Otis Redding lip synch routine now! (Sarah Pitre)
