Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and that can only mean one thing... it's Theater Thursday! This week's featured movie is a  favorite of mine and it's none other than... Sixteen Candles.
Sixteen Candles follows the sixteenth birthday of Samantha Baker (Molly Ringwald). It's one of the most memorable birthdays is a person's life and Samantha is sharing this special time with her sister Jenny who's getting married the weekend of her birthday. 

Samantha's parents are so busy with last minute wedding preparations, family coming into town and the antics of Jenny's fiance Rudy that they've forgot all about her birthday. When Sam realizes that her entire family has forgot she decides to let her best friend know that she's got a crush on the most popular guy in school... Jake Ryan (Michael Schoeffling). 

Accidently finding a note Jake is aware that Samantha likes him. After a horrible party at his house he realizes that he doesn't care for his current girlfriend and that he might actually like Samantha. It'll take the school nerd (Anthony Hall) to help get them together. 

If you've never seen this John Hughes classic, it's definitely worth watching!

What's funny is I've never actually seen them. I have seen bits and pieces at times, but I've never sat down to watch the entire thing.
