Cringeworthy. Racism and sexism at it's finest.

Yikes. I know it was the 80's but saying faggot this much is in such bad taste. Also the 10 year old making a joke saying to make sure they boil the sheets after the Chinese exchange student leaves was disgusting. The two main leads also have zero chemistry because they don't get together until the last 2 minutes of the film. It's beyond creepy this film.

A great coming-of-the-age film with many memorable lines and characters. Highly recommended

I love this movie! It has everything a teen angst movie needs. The plot is cute and the dialogue is hilarious. The casting was fabulous, and the characters totally believable. It totally characterizes the 80's in every way.

Not John Hughes' best film but still quite entertaining. Ringwald better than usual as the the teen girl whose family forgets her birthday on the eve of her sister's wedding while she frets about the guy she likes in school. The one negative - the obnoxious little brother.

If only I had discovered this earlier, at least I watched it and loved it. Anthony Michael Hall pulls all the stops being likeable as much, if not more, than his performance on National Lampoon's Vacation.

I don't remember other John Hughes films being so funny or so sweary. Shame it took me so long to see this.

John Hughes is God. Just about. Fantastic movie even 30+ years later.

I'd give a star just because Molly Ringwald is there.

John Hughes delivers a great yet simple story revolving around a birthday and love. Molly Ringwald and Anthony Michael Hall are both great together and separate.

Sixteen Candles is an timeless 80s gem with witty dialogue and charming performances from Molly Ringwald and Anthony Michael Hall.

If you enjoy heteronormative teen movies that are offensive, sexist, and unapologetically cheesy then this is the movie for you!

Over the top silly at points but there is truth within the story and themes and it makes for a truly hilarious time.
