you took me back to a special year!!!! I guess at that stage in my life I would have dated Judd Nelson...today it would be Emilio Estevez!!
have a great Friday!!!

Dan W Johnson said...

Easily Molly Ringwald. Pretty In Pink an all time favorite as well...

White Rabbit said...

I'd like to think I would be dating Judd Nelson but I know realistically I would be dating Anthony Michael Hall ...

g. said...

Whoever screamed puppies and cats. Puppies and cats. Hahahaha! Tough one. I need to watch it again, even though I saw it like 10 times 100 years ago. You?

TheBeautyFile said...

Dating: none of them

Crushing on: Judd Hall

Why crushing only? He wouldn't have me because I was just 4 years old...

K @ Blog Goggles said...

I sort of have a thing for older men, so probably Richard Vernon. But I'd totally have crushes on Judd Nelson and Emilio Estevez.

Absolutely Not Martha said...

you have no idea how much i love anthony michael hall in this movie. that's not to say i would have dated him though.

Kim said...

I'd definitely have a crush on Emilio Estevez but would probably attract Michael Hall:(

LiLu said...

Emilio. Cause then I could call his name out like in Night at the Roxbury whenever I wanted.

EMILIOOOOOO

gangsta bride said...

I'm a sucker for nerds- its Brian all the way.

Kim Hightower said...

I would have totally been diggin' on Emilio/Andrew BUT with my luck, I would have been with John/Carl. Yeah, because that's how I roll!

Kellie said...

I totally would have been going for the bad boy: Judd. Yeppers.

Tikimama said...

Saw this movie soooo many times! Like, totally wanted to be Claire and have John Bender hitting on me! All my friends were like Anthony Michael Hall, and in truth, so was I.

Jake Hammell said...

Based on how they looked then, Molly Ringwald. But, let's say my steamy relationship in 1985 blossomed into marriage and this spouse and I were happily together, Ally Sheedy for sure.

Bon Don said...

I love this one!! I would have been dating Emilo BUT had Judd on the side for sure!!!

tanya said...

AWESOME. :-)

Alicia @ boylerpf said...

Umm...you forgot to put "none of the above"!!! If push came to shove, Judd would have to do!

Raina said...

I was in high school in 1985 and Judd Nelson made my bits tingle.

Andhari said...

Definitely Emilio, he's so cute and pretty geeky at times :P

Milly said...

love the movie...i've seen it more times than i can count....
it's a tie between Judd and Emilio
i loved the bad boys at one time and then later loved athletic boys too.....but now...i would so be dating Anthony Michael Hall....oh and he got so buff too...:)

Char said...

I would like to say the geek, but it was totally the jock. what can I say...I was only 17.

ASSHOLE BOYFRIEND said...

See now this is tricky. I would be 'messing' around with Estevez (in real life I messed around with the popular jock and one of his friends at my High School), be friends with Sheady, had a hallway acquaintance with Claire, be called a fag by Nelson, be hated by Vernon (teacher always hated me for some reason), be loved by Kapalos (the janitors at my schools always liked me because I never thought I was better then them and I would talk to them between classes), and I would tell others to stop picking on Michael Hall.

In The Cottage said...

LOVE this!
In 1985 I would definitely have been dating Emilio because he's hot. Secretly I would have wanted to date Anthony Michael Hall because I LUST after geeky guys. ...and, I have to say, I'd probably also have a secret hook up with Judd because he's sooooo dirrrrty!!! yes!

clorivak said...

Judd...hands down.

Hanako66 said...

I like dorky guys

Anthony Michael Hall for sure.

Gabby said...

Judd all the way...rawr.

...love Maegan said...

OH I'm so in love with this movie ...and 16 Candles and Pretty in Pink ...I just watched this one last weekend ...srsly. no joke.

The Seeker said...

I think Emilio Estevez...

Have a gorgeous weekend, dear

Luv
xoxo

E.K. said...

Can I choose from a different John Hughes film?

thereddeer said...

Probably the dorky dude - because I am a bit of a dork myself :P

Elizabeth Marie said...

AMAZING. Holy shit.

I don't know. I'm torn. Prob Jud and Emilio could take me to prom?

Gay bestie Matt is dating a guy named Jamoll. So we of course call him "Jamolly Ringwald." He hates it. WE love it.

Love you favorite...expect an email later ohhh yes. XO

La Couturier said...

Ahh, they are so adorable ;]

Bisous,
La C.

Pyzahn said...

I'm jumping movies cause I never really had "it" for any of this crew... I always wanted my own Lloyd Dobler from Say Anything.

Doesn't Judd Nelson have the biggest nostrils!?!?

Chessa! said...

It would be either Judd Nelson after he stopped being such a douche OR Emilio Estevez after he stopped being such a douche. When I was single I definitely did not have a "type" of guy that I liked...as long as they aren't douches I would give them a chance.

LENORENEVERMORE said...

Paul Gleason as Richard Vernon...I get easily turn on by authoritative figure...hehe*

Girl Japan said...

I would date Molly and Judd-

diane said...

I wasn't much into dating in high school, but I probably would have slept with Judd Nelson.

one little simitopian said...

Oh I loved this movie! I'm not sure I'd go for any of those guys these days, but as a foolish teen, Bad Boy Judd would've been my choice :D
If I were to become gay, I'd go for Ally. I loved her kooky character, and related to it when I first saw it!

Diana said...

ANTHONY MICHAEL HALL. i married someone nerdy like him, too ;)

i've been told by so many people that i remind them of allison reynolds. not so much the way i look, but how i am. i don't know if that is a good thing or bad thing :P

Carlotta said...

john bender of course!!

Alisa said...

Judd, definitely!

creative kerfuffle said...

judd nelson all the way. ok, back then, but not now. i loved the bad boy.

The Cottage Cheese said...

Judd was hot, but if I have to say which "character" I would have actually gone for in high school, then I probably would have gone for the athlete (Emilio).

Underfunded Heiress said...

Hmmm. Probably no one. But 90210- I loved Brandon Walsh! He would be my crush!

Penny said...

I would probably have dated the geek,but had a crush on the bad boy.

TERI REES WANG said...

I woke up in the wee hours just the other eve, turned on the tube, and found the Breakfast Club waiting for me!

Oh, it's all about "John Bender"!
I like my men, like I like my dogs...
Big & Dumb! ;P

esther said...

:)
