Further Examination of ‘Pretty In Pink’

by | Sep 5, 2019 | Movie Reviews, Opinion

When I lay in bed at night, I like to find things to watch that I can fall asleep to easily. This usually consists of things I’ve seen a million times because I don’t get drawn in to them since I already know how they end.

Last night was ‘Pretty In Pink’.

Now, beyond me noticing that Rusty was the gym teacher, and beyond my previous assessments of this film as being the absolute worst message to ever be sent to young women under the pretense of ‘romance’, I had a new takeaway last night that I somehow never picked up on all this time.

I’m incredibly disappointed in me, but for the first time in 33 years, I noticed that Annie Potts’ character ‘Iona’, is a creepy loser.

As we examine the character, we realize that her heyday was the ’60s. This places her as near 40 in the film, and yet….she hangs out with high school students.
She goes to clubs with them.
They come to her apartment.

And when the Duckie kisses her and she admits that “I know I’m old enough to be his mother, but when the Duck laid that kiss on me last night, I swear my thighs just went up in flames!”.

So Iona….was basically a pedophile.

How did I miss this all this time?
