Molly, Molly, Where Art Thou?

Just finished watching Pretty In Pink last night, completing my John Hughes - Molly Ringwald trilogy.

It wasn't as good as the other two, The Breakfast Club and Sixteen Candles, but i suppose for the sake of completion, it was worth it. Watching the movie made me wonder the same thought that probably millions of other baby boomers had - what happened to Molly Ringwald? She was the ultimate teenage movie star of the 80's, but after that, even with all the hype, she never made it big like some of her other peers (well, granted, not that many are that famous now).

The last time i saw her was on the MTV movie awards last year, i think, when they reunited part of the cast of the Breakfast Club on stage to honor the movie for it's place in pop culture. As i recall, only Michael Anthony Hall, Ally Sheedy (another 80's teen idol) and Ringwald made an appearance, Paul Gleason had sadly passed on.

Before that, i saw her on 'Not Another Teen Movie' doing a cameo as the airport flight announcer parodying the roles that made her famous.

God, I miss the 80's!
