The kids in detention in The Breakfast Club aren't that amusing when you suddenly have a secondary school age child too, sad

St Elmo's Fire still my favourite though.

Oh yeah! Although as a horny teen, I was always put off by the fact that Patrick Swayze reminded me of my Stepdad! Thankfully, nowadays, Stepdad had aged and Johnny hasnt! Problem solved! PS was drop dead gorgeous!

I once read a review which said PS is has two facial expressions - surprised and very surprised. Very true, especially if you watch him in Ghost grin

Johnnycakes are corn pancakes.

Or Patrick Swayzes butt cheeks.

Depending on your breakfast preference.

I'm the same with these Twighlight films. Stop snogging in a bloody meadow and go and do yer homework.

DH remarked that PS 'walked as if he had got something shoved up his bum' in DD. That was his only comment. confused

Obviously a slice of bacon and some maple syrup packed up the cleft of his Johnnycakes! grin

Pretty in Pink is the best

Twilight films even!

In reverse I find the mother of Kevin from Home Alone an absolute useless nightmare, and also dislike the judgeypants mum in Uncle Buck.

Duckie is my fave character in that Roasties but Andrew McCarthy better in St Elmo's Fire. smile

I trump them all with-

About Last Night.

My absolute favourite ever.

MichelleRooJnr Thu 27-Dec-12 23:21:12

I just decided for definite, final, absolutes that PS in DD is the hawtest movie man EVER.
I always had my suspicions, but tonight's 600th(ish) time watching it confirmed it.
And it is now indisputable
Even hotter than John Malkovich in anything.
And that is saying something.
(And Baby's Dad is a grumpy old fart)

Mannequin for me, I still get all tense when she's dangling over the wood chipper machine, I've only seen it 4034 times in my lifetime, so know the ending by now. grin

MichelleRooJnr Thu 27-Dec-12 23:23:30

Binfullofgiblets - your post made me think of Kevin yum Bacon.
Packed up the cleft of PS's Johnnycakes hmm

Sparklingbrook Thu 27-Dec-12 23:25:04

No Michelle, because that would be Rob Lowe I am afraid. Sorry.

CatPussRoastingOnAnOpenFire Thu 27-Dec-12 23:26:51

I'm going to make DD13 sit through DD tomorrow.
I always wanted Baby's dad for my own. He is rather lovely in a stuffy kind of way!

Sparklingbrook Thu 27-Dec-12 23:27:49

Oooh Kevin Bacon. Now he can look at my Everything Everywhere any time he likes....

sashh Thu 27-Dec-12 23:28:42

Wtf is a johnnycake?

A Jamaicen style dumpling.

<wonders if the Jamaicen take away is open>

MichelleRooJnr Thu 27-Dec-12 23:28:53

ah ok sparklingbrook.
I will give you Rob Lowe as a very close second (or a tie if he's topless and sweaty).
And poor wee River Pheonix was heading the way of the mature buff too sad

SrirachaGirl Thu 27-Dec-12 23:35:57

I'm old but still swoon over Patrick Swayze. He is just divine in Dirty Dancing <melts>.

DrRanj Thu 27-Dec-12 23:38:05

Ah yes, don't they refer to johnnycakes in brown girl in the ring?

Mmmmm Jamaican takeaway.

Mmmmm patties, I blardy miss patties.

DrRanj Thu 27-Dec-12 23:51:42

the gorgeous mr swayze

SchnappsDamnYou Thu 27-Dec-12 23:51:54

sparkling I can do all the about last night dialogue...

Let me put my toddler to bed and then be can reminisce....(it's 6.51pm here)

Maybe we knew too much.,.,

I've never been able to watch Dirty Dancing again, since I saw the Family Guy 'alternate ending'. So true... grin
