Andie SHOULD have ended up with Duckie, right? Find out why she didn't and celebrate Pretty in Pink's 35th anniversary Valentine's Weekend.

Are you Team Duckie or Team Blane? "Blane? His name is Blane? That's a major appliance! That's not a name!" John Hughes' Pretty in Pink debuted in theaters in 1986. I double-checked the math and somehow, that was 35 years ago. A special anniversary screening is planned for Valentine's weekend.

John Hughes' '80s resume is impeccable: The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Sixteen Candles, Some Kind of Wonderful, Weird Science, Home Alone, the three Vacation movies and many more. Pretty in Pink was a 1986 teen romantic comedy starring Molly Ringwald in her third Hughes film. "Brat Pack" star Andrew McCarthy and Jon Cryer (in his breakout role) vie for the affection of Andie. Like many of the John Hughes movies, it was set in the Chicago suburbs and it had an outstanding soundtrack. That ending, though. If you see the 35th anniversary film, you'll also watch a featurette where director Howard Deutch talks about why Andie and Duckie didn't work.

So, make plans to enjoy this bittersweet '80's comedy with a killer New Wave soundtrack and volcanic wardrobe choices with your sweetheart on Valentine's weekend.
