Movie synopsis
Teen angst abounds in this classic comedy written and directed by John Hughes. Samantha Baker's (Molly Ringwald) 16th birthday should be perfect and memorable. Unfortunately, her whole family is preoccupied with her sister's impending wedding and completely forgets Samantha's big day. To add insult to injury, the school geek (Anthony Michael Hall) won't stop hitting on her, she has to bring a foreign exchange student (Gedde Watanabe) with her to the school dance, her visiting grandparents have taken over her bedroom, and she's sure that the boy of her dreams (Michael Schoeffling) doesn't know that she exists. Hughes's script captures the range of teenage emotions, from embarrassment to peer pressure to the pangs of puppy love, with humor and honesty. Hall is memorable as the Geek, and Schoeffling is perfect as the boy of Sam's dreams. A young John Cusack makes his second feature-film appearance as the geek's friend, Bryce, while sister Joan Cusack appears as Geek Girl #1. Ringwald's reign as the queen of 1980s teen flicks began with this film, which was Hughes's directorial debut and the first in his stream of successful teen films (THE BREAKFAST CLUB, FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF).

"They _______ forgot my birthday!!!"

Films like Sixteen Candles personify what the eighties was all about. And if you were a child of the 80s, you will probably identify with this film a lot more than the now younger generation. The story is simple enough, but it works so well. Molly Ringwald is particularly likable in this, and she is almost irreplaceable in her part. There are heaps of familiar faces, including small parts from many of the present day 'movie stars' ie John Cusack, Joan Cusack and Jami Gertz. It's kind of daggy though, and when you tell people you watched it their response is usually "Oh My God. That is so OLD." But that's what I like about it. If you want to watch a film that reflects the eighties, forget the nostalgia trips of The Wedding Singer and Romy and Michelle. Hire a true eighties product, such as Pretty in Pink, Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, St Elmo's Fire.... The list goes on and on.

Sixteen Candles with Molly Ringwold

This movie brings back memories of the past. My brother and I loved Molly Ringwold in many of her movies but this one was completely appropriate for my brother's birthday being that I forgot his birthday. He told me he'd been "Sixteen Candled" and I laughed so hard remembering the scene in the movie where her sweet sixteen had gone unnoticed by her father and others. My mother nor his young wife got the joke because they had not seen the movie. So, I was thrilled to find it and in DVD form. After ordering the movie we decorated everything we could and celebrated the forgotten birthday to the hilt! Thank you for adding a special component of the forgotten day.







s birthday this year because.... I forgot his birthday! His remark to me was that he'd been "Sixten Candled" and I laughed hard remembering the scene in the movie where her sweet sixteen had been forgotten by her dad and others. Anyway, my mother nor his young wife had seen the movie so we were happy to find a copy on DVD! Thank you! No more forgetting special birthdays!

A must see movie for all.

John Hughes was the best at capturing teen life. Sixteen Candles is a must see for every teen around the world. This is one of the best teen movies ever made.

Sixteen candles

I love this movie and have been wanting to buy it for so long. It's the classic tale of girl likes boy, boy has no clue she exists. My favorite parts in the film are of Long Duc Dong, he cracks me up!! I highly recommend this film for any rat pack lovers out there!

Review For: Sixteen Candles (DVD, 1998)

For anyone who grew up in the 80's, the move Sixteen Candles is a must for your DVD collection!! Not only is it hilarious, but it takes you back to those awkward years that we all had as teenagers! I bought this movie to share with my daughters, so they could see the clothes and music I wore and listened to growing up and they watch it repeatedly!! I love this movie!!!
