Maybe it’s because I’m getting older, but I could see what Hughes was going for. The moral of this tale is that if you’ve got the cash, you’ll win the natch; but if you don’t have a buck, you’re pure out of luck (Duck). The real joys of watching the movie come from the film’s troublemakers. Jon “Duckie” Cryer is just so nice and charismatic that it’s fun to watch him on screen. And of course who could forget the awesome James Spader as the rich asshole, schmoozing his way around school. Very cool. Some smart dialogue and these two guys make what would otherwise be a throwaway film watchable.
The First Time: The Making of Pretty in Pink >> 13 min > This is a decent EPK produced in your standard style. There’s some vintage interviews from the 80’s mixed with new ones.
Zoids and Richies >> 20 min > Produced in the same way, this has the cast and crew talking about the high school intricacies and each other. The best part though is when they all reminisce about Spader.
Prom Queen: All About Molly >> 13 min > Molly, Molly, Molly. I used to be in love with her back in the day. She doesn’t look bad now either. This is all about her.
Volcanic Ensembles >> 10 min > A full look at those god awful costumes.
Prom Stories >> 3 min > The cast talks about their high school experiences. Eh.
There’s a Favorite Scenes section, where you can view selected favorite scenes by the director.
The Lost Dance: The Original Ending >> There was a novelization of the movie that has a different ending. You get to see it. Pretty good stuff to include here. What’s cool is they tell you why it didn’t work.
Wrap Up: The Epilogue >> This title says everything. The cast and crew say goodbye.
