"I loathe the bus. There has to be a more dignified mode of transportation."

Sixteen Candles is one of John Hughes' earliest movies. During the 1980s Hughes was the guru when it came to classic high school comedies that accurately encapsulate the torment and pain of life as a teenager. This film was Hughes' directorial debut. His career immediately took off as he directed such famou... read more

To be honest, I always had a hard time with John Hughes, but since this movie had a decent reputation,  I thought I might as well check it out. Eventually, I have to admit that it was actually not bad at all. Sure, it never reached the level of 'The Breakfast Club' which would remain forever his only real masterpiece but it was still a decent a directing debut. Indeed, even though I tend to think... read more

Samantha's life is going downhill fast. The fifteen-year-old has a crush on the most popular boy in school, and the geekiest boy in school has a crush on her. Her sister's getting married, and with all the excitement the rest of her family forgets her birthday! Add all this to a pair of horrendously embarrassing grandparents, a foreign exchange student named Long Duc Dong, and we have the makings of a hilarious journey into young womanhood.

250 Of My Favorite Films From The 80's, y'all (250 movies items)

"The year is 1984, and screenwriter John Hughes has directed his first full length feature, called Sixteen Candles. It stars early adolescent newcomers Molly Ringwald, John Cusack and a very scrawny Anthony Michael Hall, in a coming of age film about the awkwardness that comes with, well..... coming of age. And from here on end, teenage movies of the 80's will never be the same. "
