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

I'll make a deal with you.

Let me keep these; I'll let you take Caroline home. But you gotta make sure she gets home. You can't leave her in some parking lot somewhere. Okay?
Jake, I'm only a Freshman.
So? She's so blitzed she won't know the difference.
Jake, I don't have a car.
You can take mine.
Jake, I don't have license.
I trust you...
Jake, I'd love to... I can't.

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 See more »
movies in the 80's were really cool, nice story lines, very real people and cute guys too! 80's movies were so musical, full of dance and laughter, really good acting and good use of props. I wish movies were like the old classic movies, movies nowadays are somewhat a rip off, i'm not saying all but most movies made in this era are all computerized, there's so much plastic surgery happening, drastic diets, if you look back at the old movies, the ladies are really beautiful naturally, nice hair, and the spark in those eyes, men were romantic. I watched Sixteen Candles for the first time, and i enjoyed it. I liked Pretty in Pink better though. Sixteen candles is a really funny yet in a sweet romantic sort of way....the geeks and the Duck guy, hilarious! i enjoy watching classic movies, eg. dirty dancing, ghost, gremlin, pretty in pink, ghost busters.... I wouldn't recommend this movie to kids 14+, especially if you don't like watching classic movies. But to those out there who were teens in the 80s, this might bring back your high school memories. Truly hilarious, you can predict the ending, the geeks took the spotlight for me
