Mary Stuart Masterson,
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. Written by

In late 2003, USA network announced that a made-for-TV sequel, to be called "32 Candles," was being planned, showcasing the original characters 16 years after the original film. It was unknown at the time of the announcement whether any of the original cast members would be involved with the project, but that turned out to be unimportant, since the announced new film was never made.

When Farmer Ted is driving Caroline around she says, "Looks like rain! Time to put the top up!" her mouth is just laughing, not speaking. See more »
This movie is one of the most quotable I've ever seen. Everyone who has ever seen it knows this is true. Along with "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" and "The Breakfast Club", this is the best of the John Hughes 1980's movies. The acting is perfection, down to the smallest parts, too. Standouts are Blanche Baker as the bride-to-be on too many painkillers, Justin Henry as the pain-in-the-neck little brother, Michael Schoeffling as hunk-deluxe Jake Ryan and last but never least, Anthony Michael Hall as Farmer Fred....I mean Ted.
