Samantha's life is going downhill fast. The sixteen-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 Duk Dong, and we have the makings of a hilarious journey into young womanhood.Written by

When the little brother is asking about Long Duk Dong at the beginning of the movie: He takes a drink from his glass, but the amount of soda doesn't change: .. and then in the next shot from another angle, the glass/soda bottle percents of fullness are much more full than in the previous shot.

Since I was about 12 I've been looking forward to my sweet 16, you know, a big party and a band with...
tons of people.
And a big Trans Am in the driveway with a ribbon around it. And some incredible gorgeous guy that you meet like in France. And you do it on a cloud without getting pregnant or herpes.
I don't need a cloud.
Just a pink dress and the guy, right?
A black one.
A black guy?
A black Trans Am, a pink guy.

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.
