Sixteen Candles


Directed by John Hughes, this comedy stars Molly Ringwald as a teenager with problems.  She can’t shake an annoying geek (Anthony Michael Hall) while the cool senior she likes doesn’t seem to know she’s alive. As if that weren’t enough, her family has forgotten her 16th birthday. (“This is the single worst day of my entire life.”)

Rated PG

(the PG-13 rating didn’t exist when this film was released; today it would be rated PG-13 for brief nudity and language.)
