Each film, in many ways, is the same. On the other hand, they arguably deal with different themes, such as social class, sexual identity (i.e., the way Watts dresses and acts), and choices in life (i.e., Keith's decision to hold off on college). With these ideas in mind, Pink and Wonderful could be viewed as John Hughes's most dramatic and thematic pieces (alongside The Breakfast Club). They also stand as landmarks in an era where such stories carried an exceptional quality that allowed intended viewers (teenagers) to identify with their characters and each took their subject matter seriously. It is also one of the many reasons John Hughes's legacy and influence lives.
