Pretty in Pink is on cable right now and even though I own the DVD I am watching it while I work. I love this film and ALL of John Hughes’ films. One of my FB friends posted on my post of the film poster that after it came out all regular guys thought they were a Duckie (Phil Dale) and it got me thinking.
Even though in the ’80s I was always compared to Alley Sheedy-especially when The Breakfast Club and St. Elmo’s Fire and Short Circuit came out, I wouldn’t say I was anything like Allison Reynolds. I was more of a Amanda Jones, and she is the one I related to the most, and or maybe Andie Walsh because we didn’t have any money. But who I wanted to be or would have loved to be is someone totally different.
Who is your favorite John Hughes character?
Who would you be if you could be one of them for a day?
For me it’s the same answer.
Ferris literally changed my life. I was in high school and I was very worried all the time about everything and then one summer I went to see Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and it changed the way I looked at life and my whole attitude changed-for the better!When I was in the theater I realized I was living my life like a Jeanie Bueller when I should have been enjoying life like a Ferris
I love all John’s characters, but Ferris is the one I love the most to this day.
What about you? Bueller? Bueller? Anyone?
