I am all over the reunion of Pretty in Pink’s Jon Cryer, Molly Ringwald and Annie Potts for Entertainment Weekly’s “Reunion Issue,” and the web recap includes a video of the actors speculating on Duckie’s sexuality. (Please.) But first, I’ll admit that Pretty in Pink is not my favorite of John Hughes’ Ringwald trilogy. I like Molly’s characters in Sixteen Candles and the Breakfast Club better (and I’m sorry, but 24 years later I still can’t believe she chose the dreadful Blaine over Duckie). That said, there’s no denying her amazing style in Pretty in Pink. In fact, I was on KUOW last week talking about that very topic: The inspiration from the costumes in Pretty in Pink, Grey Gardens and Times Square. What about you? Do you love or hate Pretty in Pink, and what did you think of her prom dress? Have you forgiven Andie for choosing Blaine? And do you think Duckie was gay?
