Samantha's life is going downhill fast. I didn't miss much after all cause I had seen the film countless times when I was younger. What is perverted about this movie, American Pie was perverted, this movie is a classic. Grade: A+ I'm gonna start with the good stuff though it is few and far between. Apart from picking up the balled-up 'sex quiz' in class and seeing his name, there was absolutely nothing to draw him to Sam.
His cast, with the exception of the dull Michael Schoeffling Jake , are sparky and engaging throughout.

Yep, the geek character takes advantage of the drunk popular girl at a party, it is not shown, but the morning after she is, apparently fine with it! I wish movies were like the old classic movies, movies nowadays are somewhat a rip off, i'm not saying all but most movies made in this era are all computerized, there's so much plastic surgery happening, drastic diets, if you look back at the old movies, the ladies are really beautiful naturally, nice hair, and the spark in those eyes, men were romantic. Still, it's definitely my least favorite Hughes film, and I wouldn't recommend it to any impressionable youngsters out there who might pick up some very bad messages.
Girls learned never to lend their underwear to a geek and we all learned that high school is just a phase, easily forgotten as time goes on. The real contribution of this movie is its depiction of the teenage lifestyle. I recommend this classic to anyone who likes romantic teen comedies. Michael Hall is terrific, but Molly Ringwald interests me more. This John Hughes film is one of the best romantic teen comedies in history.
All this frantic fantasy wouldn't work without an emotional anchor. Marnie who is a compulsive thief is being watched by her new boss Mark who suspects her of stealing from him and thus decides to blackmail her in the most unusual way. The exchange student was there simply to add to the chaos of the household but was just walking semi stereotyped walking gag. Anthony Michael Hall is rightly celebrated and gorgeous Molly Ringwald deserves her fame in the teen hall of Stardom. Add all this to a pair of horrendously embarrassing grandparents, a foreign exchange student named Long Duk Dong, and we have the makings of a hilarious journey into young womanhood. Geeks are supreme and sex is everywhere! The list goes on and on.
Unlike other's 80's movies Sixteen Candles didn't aged well, the movie has some dialogues that really bother me like: 'Jake: I can get a piece of ass anytime I want. When I first saw it as a child, I thought it was great too. Samantha pines for studly older boy Jake Michael Schoeffling , but worries that her chastity will be a turnoff for the popular senior. The soundtrack is kicking and very at one with the story another knack of Hughes , it features the likes of The Specials, The Revillos, Billy Idol, The Stray Cats and The Thompson Twins. It ended on the worst note possible. Add all this to a pair of horrendously embarrassing grandparents, a foreign exchange student named Long Duk Dong, and we have the makings of a hilarious journey into young womanhood. But 16 candles is not very good.
As he struggles out of his slimy prison he comes face to face with his opponent — a grotesque, powerful and very angry bug. I myself am sixteen, and I could relate to Samantha Molly Ringwald in many ways. Truly hilarious, you can predict the ending, the geeks took the spotlight for me Spoilers herein. On the plus side, it's kind of a kick to see the technology of yesteryear. Now something else that made my blood boil was that the romantic interest was the one who suggested and helped this geek guy date rape his girlfriend. It is precisely the direction we were already going with the exaggerations we play with in our own memories.
It references the movies we invent and carry in our minds from high school. This film is racist, sexist, classist and homophobic and not in a satirical way. However this kiss doesn't look like it would have been particularly easy for the actors to pull off. I understand people saying to watch film in the context of the time and place they were made, I certainly managed to keep that in mind when watching Rebel without a cause. Films from 1964 seen in 1988 looked a zillion years apart. The sixteen-year-old has a crush on the most popular boy in school, and the geekiest boy in school has a crush on her.
She is also pretty funny and relatable. However, the entire storyline relating to Sam's crush was not very believable. She is 3 dimensional as main characters are meant to be. With that being said, my mom brought over her vhs collection and we've just been putting in each movie in the stack. Oleh Dunia21 Synopsis Samantha's life is going downhill fast. Why is this of any significance? Being 16 really isn't all it's cracked up to be, maybe? If you are in the mood for a night with the brat pack, my suggestion is to skip 16 Candles, a film I found offensive and devoid of anything entertaining, in favor of the far superior Breakfast Club. While I doubt things in America are that crazy, perhaps they are crazy enough for all this to be not so much of a stretch for viewers there - this might explain why the movie had such wide appeal.
