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

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.

Pros and Cons of Films: Vol. 2 (130 movies items)

"Pros: Molly Ringwald Anthony Michael Hall The soundtrack It’s one of John Hughes’ best films. One of the best teen comedy films, possibly ever. The songs, Cons: Jake Ryan. The boyfriend of your dreams? Or horrible jerk? You be the judge. Some aspects of the film, aged better than others."

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. "
