Triple bill of John Hughes teen comedies.
In 'Pretty in Pink' Andie Walsh (Molly Ringwald) is a poor girl with lots of spirit, who is obsessed with rich kid Blane McDonough (Andrew McCarthy). In the face of adversity, love cuts across the material divide, much to the disappointment of the amiably eccentric Ducky (John Cryer), who holds a torch for Andie. However, he becomes instrumental in bringing them back together when external pressures threaten their relationship. Teen movie produced by John Hughes, with a soundtrack including contributions from The Psychedelic Furs, Echo and the Bunnymen, New Order and The Smiths.
In 'Some Kind of Wonderful' Keith Nelson (Eric Stoltz) is a young man with woman trouble. He's lucky enough to have got a date with High School princess Amanda Jones (Lea Thompson), but does she really like him? Or is he just a way of getting back at her insensitive rich-kid boyfriend Hardy Jenns (Craig Sheffer)? The young teen outsider is confused, so confused in fact that he fails to notice how his tomboy best-friend Watts (Mary Stuart Masterson) really feels about him. Vintage High School drama from the pen of 1980s teen supremo John Hughes ('The Breakfast Club', 'Pretty in Pink').
Whilst in 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) has had enough of school so, using his immense ingenuity, he makes it look as though he is ill. He then takes his best friend Cameron (Alan Ruck) and girlfriend Sloane (Mia Sara) off to spend a day out on the town. After a series of misadventures, he has to make it home before his headteacher finds out (or his sister drops him in it).
