High school senior Andie Walsh (Molly Ringwald) is a working-class girl who lives on “the wrong side of the tracks” with her underemployed father, Jack (Harry Dean Stanton). Andie’s best friend, Phil “Duckie” Dale (Jon Cryer), is in love with her, but plays it off as a joke in front of her. Andie has a crush on one of the rich, preppy boys in her school, Blane McDonough (Andrew McCarthy). When Andie and Blane try to get together, they encounter resistance from their respective social circles. In school, he and Andie are harassed by Blane’s friends, the arrogant so-called “richie” kids, Benny (Kate Vernon) and Steff (James Spader). Iona, Andie must decide whether to follow the advice of her friend and mentor Iona (Annie Potts) and go to her senior prom despite not having a date.
