Andrew McCarthy in "Lipstick Jungle"

4th SW Quadrant\The Approval Matrix: Week of Feb. 18, 2008

Plot Outline: A look at the lives of Nico, Wendy, and Victory -- three of "New York's 50 Most Powerful Women," according to The New York Post.


Andrew McCarthy gained recognition in Hollywood as his classic, clean-cut good looks continually had him placed as the sincere and kind leading man. As McCarthy's career grew, he involuntarily became a member of the infamous 80's Hollywood teen group, the Brat Pack. McCarthy's better known films include the Brat Pack films, such as St. Elmo's Fire and Pretty in Pink. -- Wikipedia

Bruce Fretts posted on TV Guide, "Cheers to Lipstick Jungle for miscasting Andrew McCarthy as Joe Bennett, the billionaire who romances fashion designer Victory Ford (Lindsay Price). In Sex and the City scribe Candace Bushnell’s excruciatingly self-derivative new NBC dramedy, Mr. Bennett seems like a Mr. Big wannabe. But with his diffident, charisma-free performance, ex-Brat Packer McCarthy (Pretty in Pink) seems more like Mr. Medium-Size."
