Brat Pack Classic
on 16 August 2017
I'm enjoying revisiting old favourite films via Amazon Prime. This one reminds me of my youth when I was obsessed with Andrew McCarthy! I do enjoy the trivia that appears on screen via Amazon Prime about the movie. I did know most of it but I didn't know that Robert Downey Jnr was due to play Duckie. As Molly Ringwald said in an interview, if that had been the case then she's sure preview audiences would have been happy for her to end up with Duckie (as per the original John Hughes script) but Jon Cryer who did play Duckie was more like a brother to her. I was glad that she did end up with Andrew McCarthy's character but if it had have been Downey Jnr then I would have been happy with that ending and I can now envisage him in the part. I'm not a fan of Jon Cryer.
A classic from the Brat Pack days.
