Pretty in Pink

Trivia: When Andie and Duckie are in the car, she stops in front of a large house and says it's her favorite. Later it's ironically shown to be Steph's house, where she attends the party.


Trivia: When Andie is giving Duckie a ride home from the club, the song "If You Leave" starts playing. Duckie says, "I hate this song," and changes it. It's the same song that's playing at the prom at the end, when Duckie gives Andie up so she can chase after Blaine.


Trivia: There was an original ending filmed which showed Andie and Duckie ending up together. However, test audiences felt that Andie should end up with Blaine. Also, John Hughes felt that putting Andie with Duckie would make it seem as if the movie's message was that people from different backgrounds shouldn't get together. Therefore, the new ending with Andie kissing Blaine was shot.

Continuity mistake: At the end, at the prom, Andrew McCarthy's hair is clearly much shorter (and combed really weird!) than in the rest of the movie. Sure you could argue, "maybe he got a haircut for the prom". But a couple of scenes earlier, it shows everyone getting ready for the prom, including him, and his hair is the same as it is all through the movie, up until the prom scene. [One contributor explains: Andrew McCarthy and Duckie are both wearing wigs. I know this because my father made the wigs. The original ending had Molly Ringwald ending up with Duckie. They wanted to change the ending so that she would end up with McCarthy. In the meantime, he had gotten a crew-cut to appear in a play or movie about soldiers. I don't know what was up w/ Duckie's hair, but the last scene has him in a wig,too].

Duckie: This is a really volcanic ensemble you're wearing, it's really marvelous.
