LOL, when I got the latest installment of Pretty In Pinky, I chuckled to myself… I said, “Self… Christopher Atkins… The Blue Lagoon, but more importantly… The Pirate Movie…” Ah, I do enjoy a good chuckle… Almost as much as I enjoy reading Pretty In Pinky on Mike The Fanboy.com!
Take a gander at Pinky’s experience with the 80’s heartthrob after the jump!
Hello my lovelies. Pinky Lovejoy here to talk about the one and only Christopher Atkins. Now there’s a hunk-a-hunk-a burnin’ love!
I first became familiar with Christopher when he starred in The Blue Lagoon with Brooke Shields. Although I was unable to watch the film, I remember thinking he was really cute (plus, he looked like Ricky Schroder which is always a good thing in my book). Then, he starred in this amazing, wonderful, campy gem of a film called The Pirate Movie with Kristy McNichol and I fell in love. This movie is heaven on earth, I’m telling you. Run, don’t walk out to the nearest video store (they still have those, right?) and rent this film. Or, better yet, I’ve got a copy I can loan you. It’s incredible.
A few months ago I had the chance to meet Christopher not once, but twice in the same week! How lucky can a girl be?!?!? Both times he was a dream come true and even signed my DVD of The Pirate Movie (and it should be noted that I rarely get anything signed, so you know this DVD is important to me). I love him. I can’t believe how dreamy he still looks all these years later. And he can sing! Oh. Sorry. I’m starting to daydream over him. I’ll get back on task.
In review, your latest assignment is to watch The Pirate Movie (and I’m just going to assume you’ve already rented The Goonies as I only encouraged you approximately five hundred times to do so) and discover the beautiful and talented Christopher Atkins for yourself.
