Description

It's Samantha Baker's Sweet Sixteen and no one in her family remembers the important occasion. John Hughes, the writer of National Lampoon's Vacation, shows how coming-of-age can be full of surprises in this warm-hearted teenage comedy starring Molly Ringwald. She's your average teen, enduring creepy freshmen, spoiled siblings, confused parents and the Big Blonde on Campus who stands between her and the boy of her dreams. But wait...the day isn't over yet! This sparkling film features a dynamic score, and outstanding performances by Paul Dooley, Emmy® winner Blanche Baker and Oscar® nominee Justin Henry.

Were we all this obvious when we were 16? So desperate for love and affection. This movie will never go out of vogue. Love it!

This is my all time favorite movie! It never gets old and reminds me of a Cinderella story with a twist of being a teenager in the 80s and having to live day to day.

One of my favorites from my 80s childhood! 16 Candles is a classic! Good story line and characters. I still watch this one once in awhile because I love it so much...mostly because I identify with lead character "Samantha" and Jake Ryan is definitely dreamy!

Fun movie! Poor Sam, nobody remembers her birthday. They’re all focusing on her sister, whose getting married. One of the funniest scenes is when her sister takes qualudes & like a rag doll. No improvement needed. Reasonable Price. Would recommend

A classic teenaged 80s film. Will make you wish that Jake Ryan was your own. The end scene is by far the best.
