About the Film:
John Hughes, Molly Ringwald, Anthony Michael Hall, John Cusack, and glorious 80s music. It just feels right. If you see this on your 16th birthday, please bring cake for the staff.
If you don't know the plot, here are the basics: With the occasion all but overshadowed by her sister's upcoming wedding, angst-ridden Samantha (Molly Ringwald) faces her 16th birthday with typical adolescent dread. Samantha pines for studly older boy Jake (Michael Schoeffling), but worries that her chastity will be a turnoff for the popular senior. Meanwhile, Samantha must constantly rebuff the affections of nerdy Ted (Anthony Michael Hall) -- the only boy in the school who seems to take an interest in her.
