Molly Ringwald

Born February 18, 1968

Molly Ringwald was one of the Brat ack and one of the IT girls when I was growing up. She played teen angst better than almost anyone else.

Noteworthy

  • Sixteen Candles – Great cast as we see Molly Ringwald’s dream of the perfect Sweet Sixteen disintegrate into embarrassment.
  • The Breakfast Club – This is my favorite of all of those 80s teenage movies. Perfect cast, Perfect script and one of the best endings to a movie ever.
  • Pretty in Pink – Who does Andie choose? Is it Blaine or is it Duckie…?
  • The Stand – Hate this made for TV version of one of Stephen King’s classics if you will but I love it. Relatively true to the book and I think the cast did a good job. Much like the book, I like to revisit often.

I don’t really believe in regret. I think you can always learn from the past, but I wouldn’t want a different life.

Why Do I Watch

Why do I watch... the Superbowl As another season draws towards the big game and my team didn't make it past the playoffs… again (sigh), I look back on my favorite professional sport and ask myself: “Why the hell do I like this game again?” The longer that I watch...

Chris Farley

Chris Farley Born February 15, 1964   Chris Farley... I don't know where to start. I miss Chris Farley. He was funny as hell. He was as good a physical comedian as anyone ever saw. Noteworthy Saturday Night Live - Some of his skits on SNL are the funniest ever. They...
