PRETTY IN PINK
80's teen sensations Molly Ringwald (Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club) and Andrew McCarthy (St. Elmo's FIre) drew raves for their starring performances in this hit love story by John Hughes (Ferris Bueller's Day Off). She's a high school girl from the wrong side of town. He's the wealthy heartthrob who asks her to the prom. But as fast as their romance builds, it's threatened by the painful reality of peer pressure. A bittersweet story with an upbeat ending and a phenomenal rock score. Pretty in Pink also stars Harry Dean Stanton, Jon Cryer, James Spader and Annie Potts.
FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF
Ferris Bueller. Larger than life. Blessed with a magical sense of serendipity. He's a model for all those who take themselves too seriously. A guy who knows the value of a day off.
Ferris Bueller's Day Off chronicles the events in a the day of a rather magical young man, Ferris (Matthew Broderick). One spring day, toward the end of his senior year, Ferris gives in to an overwhelming urge to cut school and head for downtown Chicago with his girl (Mia Sara) and his best friend (Alan Ruck), to see the sights, experience a day of freedom and show that with a little ingenuity, a bit of courage and a red Ferrari, life at 17 can be a joy!
SOME KIND OF WONDERFUL
Think everyone over 17 has forgotten what it's like to be 16? Filmmaker John Hughes (Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Pretty in Pink) hasn't. Now Hughes delivers another funny, savvy, crowd-pleasing look at adolescence in this story about a high school misfit (Eric Stoltz-Mask), who falls so head-over-heels for the senior class siren that he's blind to the charms of his beautiful and devoted best pal (Mary Stuart Masterson - Fried Green Tomatoes). Some fun, some heartache, Some Kind of Wonderful!
PLANES, TRAINS AND AUTOMOBILES
Neal Page is an advertising executive who just wants to fly home to Chicago to spend Thanksgiving with his family. But all Neal Page gets is misery. Misery named Del Griffith - a loud mouthed, but nevertheless lovable, salesman who leads Neal on a cross-country, wild goose chase that keeps Neal from tasting his turkey. Steve Martin (Neal) and John Candy (Del) are absolutely wonderful as two guys with a knack for making the worst of a bad situation. If it's painful, funny, or just pain crazy, it happens to Neal and Del, in "Planes, Trains and Automobiles". Every traveller's nightmare on a comedy-come-true!
