Sixteen Candles (1984) Poster

Alternate Versions

"Sixteen Candles" has two different music soundtracks. One appears in the theatrical release, and in the showings on cable TV. The other soundtrack appears in the home video.
The television version includes a lunchroom scene where Samantha and her friend see the guy Samantha likes and she declares that she can't eat.
Television version shown on WE network has an extra scene: right after Samantha says "I'd shit twice and die" (about anyone finding out she wrote the sex test answers about Jake), it shows Jake in the lunchroom reading the sex test he stole from the floor. It then cuts to Samantha and her friend, Randy, in line to get food, and Samantha exclaims she can't believe she's eating cafeteria burgers. Randy asks why Brenda (Sam's mother) didn't give her her carrot sticks. Samantha says, "She can't remember my birthday, you think she's gonna remember my carrots?" It's then disclosed that Sam is eating the carrots because it's supposed to make your breasts larger. Randy asks how it's going, and Sam says she's only gotten 1/16th of an inch improvement, a 1/2 inch if she takes a deep breath. They then go to find a seat. Sam sees Jake sitting at a table. She throws her food tray onto Randy's tray and says that she has to leave because Jake is there, and "I don't want him to know that I eat!" It then continues with the chin-up scene with Jake
