Sixteen Candles (1984)

Sixteen Candles (1984) The situation: Molly Ringwald just wants to date the school heartthrob and geeky Anthony Michael Hall just wants to be a ladies' man. Miraculously, they both get what they want. The lesson: Sometimes the hot guy also has a brain and a good heart. Best for: Chronic daydreamers. One viewing will have you in love with Jake Ryan for life. MARK BOSTER, TFW TPN
