Farmer Ted, you spoke for us all.

So hot and so topless NSFW.

I think she's the only member of the Breakfast Club who didn't guest star on Psych. Too bad.

Faint odour of ick coming off that point-form article, isn't there? The Peter Pan references sealed the deal.

Also, I never thought Mouldy Ringworm was much of an actor, frankly.

Will never get over my crush on Molly.
 
2014-02-23 12:23:41 PM
Well, that was five minutes of my life.
 
2014-02-23 12:31:46 PM
I wonder if that grudge Hughes held is what made him go into the Home Alone phase, for which he never recovered.

That 16 Candles pic looks an awful lot like the set of the Breakfast Club, as does Ringwald's wardrobe.

They are either shopping at a Barnes&Noble or in the library used to shot Breakfast Club.

This reminds me that I need to see Tempest again. I'm pretty sure it's good, but it's been a long time since I saw it -- don't know how it's aged.

Not much in the article, certainly doesn't live up to the headline.

If only that was actually considered homely, I'd be at a bar every night picking up desperate homely chicks.

Her book, "Getting the Pretty Back" is a decent (if unspectacular) read.
 
2014-02-23 01:24:48 PM
"Tortured"? She turned down a role that was essentially a repeat of a role she already did, and he acted like an arsehole about it. Hardly tortured.

Yeah he's crazy. She's not supermodel drop dead gorgeous but she's hardly homely. And her boobies are yummy.

Keep the 80's. MILF Molly always did it for me.

Never really cared for Hughes anyway (except Vacation). It was all mostly rich white kids whining about their non-problems (I guess Judd Nelson wasn't rich)

Great movie. Susan Sarandon at her sexiest, and Raul Julia at his absolute craziest.

"You go. Go sleep with goats."
 
2014-02-23 02:37:15 PM
I've heard the reason Judd was being such an ass to Molly off-screen was that he was trying to stay in character, and even came to blows with Emilio Estevez a few times.

As for the ending of PiP, nobody was to blame for it except Hughes. Dude could have stuck to his guns instead of caving in to the opinions of test screening audiences. Having a hissy fit because Molly didn't want to star in a gender-swapped remake of a film she just did only made him look like a childish dickhole.

Raul Julia was the goatherd! I forgot that was him, so thanks for the reminder. Okay, that clinches it.

Susan Sarandon, though, at her sexiest? That right there calls for research. Lots and lots of... research.

Every time I read about a scene changed because of test audiences it almost always appears for the worst.

I had such a crush on Molly. I only dated redheads in the 80s. Dating one now, as it turns out.
 
2014-02-23 03:44:09 PM
Molly Ringwald had a sort of stealthy sex appeal; if she hadn't those movies wouldn't have worked. It's not like they were particularly brilliant scripts.

She's not TOO pretty, so the female audience could identify with her. But she's still pretty enough that the males will tune in.

This.  I thought I was about to read about some kind of love/hate relationship - possibly romantic - between Hughes and Ringwald that ended in drugs/arrest/attempted suicide or some other psycho drama.  Instead it's a 'Actor turns down role and director is pissed.  Actor knows director is a grudge-holding a-hole and moves on.' article.  Hell, that's not tortured, that's everyday with a Y in it day in Hollyweird.

Yep, as a girl growing up in the '80s, I understood her appeal. She wasn't unattainably gorgeous; she was more the cute redhead next door type. Appealing to guys, relatable to girls.

I never found Molly Ringwald attractive. But then again, I'm heterosexual.

Is this the bit where we pretend to rank "problems" objectively and claim that anyone with access to potable water has no reason to ever complain, or the bit where we dismiss any problem that doesn't affect us personally as less "real" than our own problems?

No, I just found a lot of what a lot of them were whining about to not be very interesting,

I'll say it, if no one else will.  Some Kind of Wonderful is the superior film.

From my perspective -- I loved it then -- not well. It's too arch by a huge amount.  And Cassavetes appears to think that it's a Don't Blink Contest. (Ringwald, however, is the best thing about it.)

Great cast in that one. Eric Stolz and MSM and what's-her-sitcom as the mean biatch...

No offense, yakmans_dad, and thanks for the input -- legitimate point to be sure (though, did Cassavetes ever blink? ever? huh, more research) -- but I think Valiente kind of cancels you out what with the whole Sarandon/ripe tomato factor. AND the earlier Raul Julia credit which I had forgotten about.

Some films of certain periods don't age well, it's true though. Sometimes they nail the time in which they were made so well that you lose a lot the further you move from that time. The trendy haircuts and clothes, for instance, become laughable in a hurry. And certain directors' work just doesn't age well either, for whatever reasons.

It is, by far, the best of Hughes's films. If Ringwold had done it, her career probably would have not crashed as hard as it did.
