It's saturday

So that must mean it's time for Gary the X-Donk's trip down 80s babe lane. Today's stop: Molly Ringwald.

How to describe Molly Ringwald to today's youth? She was kind of like the Olsen Twins, except she had red hair and there was only one of her. It was the eighties in Reagan's America, and the only acceptable Red to like was Molly. That said, she couldn't act her way out of a wet paper bag with an exacto knife glued to her American Express gold card. But she was kind of cute, in that pre-emaciated skank 1000 yard stare sort of way.

What I'm looking forward to is that Gary is eventually going to have to come around to Ally Sheedy, and we know what types of problems that's going to create for the lad.

Steve, what have you got against Molly Ringwald? She was adorable back in the day, and still doesn't look half bad. I never could figure out why Ally Sheedy was supposed to be worth a second glance.

I've said nothing about acting ability because, let's face it, nobody in the Brat Pack could act their way out of a paper bag.

No, don't mistake that for a positive Ally Sheedy posting. Just the thought of that gives me the heeby-jeebies. And I think Gary's done a good job of pulling out the real actors with staying power in the bunch: Elisabeth Shue and Leah Thompson.
