Sixteen Candles (4-May-1984)

Director: John Hughes

Writer: John Hughes

Music by: Ira Newborn

Producer: Hilton A. Green

Keywords: Comedy

Samantha Baker's upcoming 16th birthday seems utterly forgotten by her family and school friends; the boy she crushes on, Jake Ryan, is out of her league while a different, much geekier boy crushes on her. Foreign exchange student Long Duc Dong adds additional crazy. Well-paced and funny; a quintessential eighties teen romantic comedy.
