Dandy Andies

For a while my secret wish was to have a nickname—Andie, specifically. It never quite took off. But get out the popcorn, cause tonight I'm celebrating my favorite Andies and Andys of the silver screen.

Andy Sachs (Anne Hathaway) in The Devil Wears Prada
Yeah, she should have stayed away from that sleazy journalist dude and made it work with Adrian Grenier. But her makeover could only have been more exciting if it had been orchestrated by Cher Horowitz herself.

Andie Walsh
(Molly Ringwald) in Pretty in Pink
All she wants to do is date the cute rich guy, but she's so embarassed about how poor she is (she literally lives on the wrong side of the tracks) and his rich friends are all super jerks. Once again, thank goodness for the clothes.

And my favorite: Andy Carmichael (Kerri Green) in The Goonies
This pretty and popular cheerleader accidentally made out with Sean Astin, was BFF with supercool
Martha Plimpton, and gave me the Andie-as-a-nickname idea in the first place.

P.S. Dishonorable mention goes to magazine editor Andie Anderson (Kate Hudson) from How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. She gets minus points for a stupid last name, a ridiculous plot and an obnoxious leading man. Then there's Andrea Zuckerman of 9021-old fame, who could have been an Andie if she wasn't so snobby about the pronunciation of her name.

Ahndrea was kind of irritating.

No love for Andie McPhee on Dawson's Creek? Sure, she was annoying on occasion, but she was my favorite Dawson's Creek character. I wanted Pacey to come back to her, but nooo!! (Sorry to post so much in such a short time--just found your blog and really am enjoying it!)

You know, originally I was going to include Dawson's Creek Andie, then I decided to just do movie Andies -- but THEN I went ahead and mentioned 90210 Andrea anyway! Ha.

Glad you like the blog:)
