You guys, we've all got to get over Jennifer Connelly. She can't really act and she's not that hot. I just re-watched Labyrinth recently and it doesn't quite stand the test of time, trust me. We all have good memories of David Bowie's tight shiny pants, but just think of Jennifer Connelly in that movie: whiny and flat. And whiny.

Remember how adorable Molly Ringwald is in every single thing she does?

Haha @Alex I still love me some Jennifer Connolly and I do think she can act. But she's a product of the 90's. Ringwald was the 80's.

Will you stop on Molly Ringwald??? She's not that adorable. I mean she's a red head with no fire.....How does that even work?

Laby is a fine Connelly flick, even my 18 month old son likes it and he can't tell the difference between David Bowie and my 78 year old great aunt that chain smokes, but wathc Career Opportunities and tell me that Connelly isn't smoking hot.

Jennifer is so much hotter than Molly, in the 80's and today!

I quote Mr. Fletch "Your job is to fawn over the idea and/or the women and then vote on who you think represents Reagen Era hotness the most."

Hotness = Jennifer...oh yeah.

I vote Connelly even though I don't think she belongs here, but Ringwald isn't attractive and I find her annoying.

Nick said...

I think Connelly is hotter, but Ringwald is totally the poster girl for the 80s, so I had to go with her.

Tom said...

Molly all the way.

Like the intensity of the comments here. Of course, I'm still pissed that Jamie Lee lost. But with her out, it was for either of these two to win, I guess.

I don't know if it was my failing or not (probably), but I always try to think of both the career/impact and the hotness of the competitors. Sure, Connelly is more attractive, but it's not as though Ringwald was a wallflower - she was known as the Princess, for chrissakes. And, as it's been covered ad nauseum, Connelly was at her peak in the 90s, and without Labyrinth (an awful, awful movie that's nonetheless loved), she'd have pretty much nothing in the 80s.

I voted Molly.
