Samantha "Sam" Baker is obsessed with Jake Ryan. Sam and Ted talk about her adoration. Jake makes a bet with Ted. It is considered one of the best high school films because of its themes of maturity and crushes. The only reservations this reviewer had were the depiction of the Asian exchange student and usage of underwear to earn money. A few scenes may have been too childish, nevertheless the amazing soundtrack and Ringwald's performance are highlights of the film. Sixteen Candles is a decent romantic comedy and is not at par with the rest of the director's films.

Still fun and hilarious today. One of John Hughes's best.

John Hughes at his most brutally funny and sarcastic. Great 80's tunes and nostalgia on full display. Somewhere in here, there's a sly story about how great and rough it is to be a teenager and that still holds up today.
