OK, so. George and I were channel surfing, and in a fit of kitsch-fueled crapgasm, we stopped on a Hallmark Channel movie (don’t judge). This particular one stars Andrew McCarthy, whose clout peaked in 1986 with his role as Blaine in Pretty in Pink.
I love this scene. I still love this movie, though really, people, you and I both know that Andie totally should have chosen Duckie. And I digress.
George looked at the TV screen and said, “Oh, man. That guy. I never could stand his sort of sad-sack, hangdog look.”
And you know, ten thousand years ago, waaaay back in 1986, I, like, totally thought Andrew McCarthy was, like, totally super-cute ‘n’ stuff. But you know, he does look sort of depressive. World-weary. A little glum.
For real, people. He totally looks like Droopy Dog.
He even kind of sounds like him.
So much for any nostalgia-fueled ’80s fest.
