Some Kind of Wonderful might have been the first John Hughes film I saw in the theater. Don’t quote me, but I THINK it was. And I love it. The film spoke to me. But, watching it years later, the film kind of faded for me. Because, it really is…Pretty In Pink. This time in reverse. Many believe Hughes wrote the script to correct criticisms of the Ringwald led classic. Whatever the case, the resulting film is a bit of a mixed bag. Leah Thompson is great in it. Mary Stuart Masterson captured my heart. And Eric Stoltz is Eric Stoltz. One of the most off putting actors ever. His performance combined with poor directing choices makes for one of my least favorite entries in the John Hughes oeuvre….and yet its still not a bad film. And at least this time Ducky wins.
