I do have a soft spot in my heart for Molly Ringwald, though. My sister, the high powered executive, who once wrote this diary entry, actually looked like Molly Ringwald with brown hair when this movie came out. Really. She looked more related to Molly than me. She could have been her older sister. When I watch Molly Ringwald in her movies, I see my sister.
As long as I'm at it, let's talk Grease. Again, I was already out of high school when Grease was released (just barely) but I clearly remember wondering at the time, when watching it, why on earth Sandy (Olivia Newton-John) had to change in order to get Danny (John Travolta) who, really, wasn't that great of a catch. I mean I get that it's just a movie and a rockin' musical, etc., but the actual message of Sandy changing herself in order to get Danny is... stupid and silly and sends a bad message to girls.
