Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and that can only mean one thing here at Crazy Shenanigans. It's Theater Thursday! This week's featured movie is, Sixteen Candles
This 1980's classic stars Molly Ringwald, as 16 year old Samantha Baker. Living in the suburbs of Chicago, Samantha is turning 16 years old. Too bad her parents forgot! 

Samantha's birthday is on Friday and her older sister is getting married the next morning. Having to deal with the wedding stress her mother, father, brother and entire family forget that it's her birthday. In an attempt to cheer herself up, Sam goes to the school dance. At the dance she runs into school nerd, Ted (Anthony Hall). Feeling down in the dumps she tells Ted about how her parents forgot her 16th birthday. She also confides in him that she's got a crush on the most popular boy in school, Jake Ryan (Michael Schoffield). 

Much to her surprise, Ted informs Samantha that he's buddies with Jake and that infact he does know that she exists. Completely shocked, Samantha doesn't know what to do! Jake is dating the most popular girl, Caroline. Why would he ever be interested in her?! So Ted sets out to see if he can make it happen for her. In the meantime, tons of crazy adventures happen through the night and into the next morning. 

The whole time Samantha is thinking about Jake and her forgotten birthday. If you've never seen this classic, it's a MUST!

Omg! It's been YEARS since I've seen that movie!!! I need to get it again. I don't remember a lot about it.

My memory is shot due to old age. I hate that.
