Blame it all on John Hughes….

Posted April 10th, 2007 by

A little-known piece of trivia:  in the original ending to Pretty in Pink, Andie picks her geek friend, Duckie.  The test audience didn’t like this, so they refilmed the ending where she picks Blane.  This was a perfect opportunity to show the world that geeks are cool in their own way.  But peer pressure won out in the end, just like it always does.

The moral of the story is, even in the movies, geeks don’t get the girl.  And we’ve been suffering ever since. =)
