What is the Best Brat Pack movie? (Bonus Question: Who the Hell constitutes the Brat Pack?)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brat_Pack_(actors)

Per Wikipedia, this is the consensus Brat Pack membership

Emilio Estevez
Anthony Michael Hall
Rob Lowe
Andrew McCarthy
Demi Moore
Judd Nelson
Molly Ringwald
Ally Sheedy

I'm not sure why Mare Winningham, James Spader and Robert Downy, Jr. don't make that cut, or why "Weird Science" doesn't appear on their list of Brat Pack movies, but there it is.

2. Sixteen Candles

John Hughes' first movie, and he also wrote the screenplay, I think.

7. I love Sixteen Candles BUT

there's some pretty creepy things in it, like the hunk, Jake, leaving his drunk girlfriend with the geek (Anthony Michael Hall) who has sex with her. It was funny in 1984.

3. Anyone Else Realize There's A Very Strong Resemblance....

.....between the character, "Steff", played by James Spader, in "Pretty in Pink", and Brett Kavanaugh? They're both just the kind of entitled douche who takes what they want because they can.

5. Yes!

That is exactly who I was thinking of! I hated that character. He actually reminded me a bit of Trump when he was younger as well.
