Sixteen Candles

A delightful film to come out of the eighties about a teenage girl whose entire family completely forgot about her sixteenth birthday. Like any teenager, she feels depressed and unloved, while her family makes a huge commotion over her sister's upcoming marriage. She also wonders why she isn't popular and beautiful as some of her peers and why is a puny computer geek, played by the spirited Anthony Michael Hall, is after her when the high school heartthrob doesn't even know her! A highlight of John Hugh films.
