From Amazon.co.uk

Molly Ringwald established herself as the teen queen of the '80s in this fresh comedy. The movie is a day in the life of Samantha, whose 16th birthday is turning out to be anything but sweet. All the traumas of teendom come down on one long day, which sees Samantha surrounded by dithery relatives, mooning over a high school hunk, and pursued by a sawed-off Lothario. Sixteen Candles marked the directing debut of John Hughes, and its goofy energy displayed a promising talent with a great ear for high school lingo ... a promise neglected since Hughes became, after Home Alone, a one-man entertainment industry. There are some pretty crass moments (Why the stereotype of the foreign-exchange student from Asia?), but Ringwald's steady appeal smoothes over the rough spots. As the pubescent, self-styled lady-killer, Anthony Michael Hall turns in a hilarious portrait of a young swinger; he and Ringwald would reteam with Hughes for The Breakfast Club, another key teen picture of the decade. --Robert Horton

It really isn't, it's predictable and actually quite boring, Anthony Michael Hall looks about 12 which makes some of his actions look quite disturbing, and it is unrealistic that the most popular guy in school would suddenly decide he really likes her. If you want to see some good 80's films, watch the Breakfast club, St Elmo's fire, Heathers,Back to the future 1-2, beetle juice or Fast times at Ridegmount High

Format:VHS Tape
Loved it. This film is about Samantha who's sixteenth birthday is forgotten by her family due to all the fuss over her sisters wedding. As the film progresses it shows her day. From her at school in class passing a note to her best friend about who she fancies; only for the note to be seen by that guy. To when she gets home to find her embarrassing grandparents have arrived. And then onto the school dance where she makes friends with the school geek. The only mistakes this film had was making her grandparents too embarrassing,(no-ones gp's are that bad). And by making the Asian boy a goody-two shoes untill he is led astray by the American teens. This film has everything and if you're a fan of 80's romantic comedies and Molly Ringwald then this film is for you. This film has Molly Ringwald at her best and to see other great films with her in it. Watch Pretty In Pink and The Breakfast Club. This is a must see movie

I missed this film first time round but am a fan of 80s brat pack films, so bought it to watch with my children. Fun film with great performances from Molly Ringwald and Anthony Michael Hall.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dated but fun 4 Aug 2013
Never actually saw this the first time around, but after catching seminal Eighties `Brat pack' movie The Breakfast Club for the umpteenth time recently, I thought I'd give this (from the same director and with two of the same leads) lesser known teen effort a go. It's safe to say that it's not in the same class as its sibling, however there's plenty of fun to be had spotting the likes of a teenage John Cusack and his sister Joan in supporting roles, and wondering what on earth happened to Anthony Michael Hall and Ally Sheedy. The main difference here is probably a lack of plot direction - The Breakfast Club explored (albeit tentatively) class and relationships, but Sixteen Candles only has a forgotten birthday and plenty of hormonal angst to keep it afloat. All in all this is a flimsy but enjoyable way to spend ninety minutes, and a reminder of just how little teenagers have changed over the past thirty years.
