It’s amazing how time flies. The same guy that uttered the unforgettable line “What’s Happenin’ Hot Stuff?” is now closing in on 60 years old. His name? Gedde Watanabe. “Where is my automobile?” Man I loved the Donger. As I watched 16 Candles for the 515th time I realized that the movie really isn’t all that good save for the Donger and Anthony Michael Hall’s character, “The Geek.” Yes that’s right, we never found out his name in the movie.

Now, we form a clearer picture of what a romantic comedy is. Not all of the films in this section are necessarily “good,” but they’re all iconic, definitive romantic comedies (hence their inclusion). Memorability does not necessarily come partnered with quality. It means right place, right time.
