16 Love Triangles Where the Right Choice Was Obvious
Andie, Blane/Duckie from Pretty in Pink
The right choice: Duckie
There are plenty of lessons ’80s movies taught us. But one of the worst ones was that you have to choose the popular guy who is into you over your loyal BFF who is in love with you. Andie (Molly Ringwald) was a poor highschooler who suddenly finds herself being asked out by Blane (Andrew McCarthy), one of the most popular kids in school. And they seem so awkward together through every encounter! They never seem like they vibe in the way Andie does with her BFF Duckie (Jon Cryer). Duckie is always there for her giving her advice and making her laugh, while Blane demonstrates how embarrassed he is of her throughout the movie. Love triangles in ’80s movie usually end with the wrong pick, tbh, and so did this one. But we’re still imagining a world beyond high school where Andie finally chose Duckie.
