Saw this on the Encore channel tonight and had to make a thread about it because I love it!

 -

I could go on and on about how great this movie is. From the opening montage at the school to the last scene where Samantha finally gets to celebrate her birthday, the movie never gets boring and is full of 80's perfection.

Anthony Michael Hall as "Farmer Ted" is the most hilarious portrayal of a teenage geek ever (didn't we all know a guy in high school like him?), Samantha's entire family - especially her little brother Mike and her Grandparents always make me laugh, and you gotta love Joan Cusack with her scoliosis brace. But the most memorable is probably Long Duk Dong and his "American Style Girlfriend."

 -

How can you not love this movie??

Actually, I've always thought of myself as a Jake Ryan in-training..well....except without the Porsche, the sideburns, and of course the sweater vest...

This is true, Valley....But maybe Farmer Ted had an "ultimate set of tools" and got the house put back together for Jake before the parents got home?

uh..I think you've watched "Fast Times At Ridgemont High" one too many times to think any tools could get that house back in shape before Jake's dad got home. Also, that 'ultimate set of tools' didn't work too well on Jefferson's car come to think of it!

Maybe Jake is in solitary confinement along with Long Duk Dong who was in trouble for driving Grandpa's "automobile" into a lake!

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh Love this film. I saw it for the first time on TV, late at night, hidden away in the graveyard shift (that's how I saw the breakfast Club too actually). I now own, not one but TWO I love Jake ryan t-shirts haha.

One of the best things about it is that they make Jakes popular cheerleading girlfriend nice. The rival popular girl is always mean which is why we root for the underdog.

Farmer Ted is brilliant....'they say it's your birthday....it's my birthday too'.

I took a copy to work to show the teenagers I worked with and they all loved it (I hope they don't re make it....not the teenagers, Hollywood)

Great thread, you've made me want to go and watch it NOW.

Veronica and Valley, you guys named two of may favorite scenes:
JAAAAKE! (geek screeching under the glass table) & Joan Cusack in the brace when Farmer Ted is on the bus and she kind of tilts herself toward him and says "Ahh...yeah." Cracks me up...every...time.

I love it because of

"You're in the parking lot in front of my church."
"You own a church?"

"Geek, can I be honest with you?"
"Not if you're gonna insult me."

"It's kinda cool, the way she's always lookin' at me."
"Maybe she's retarded."

They are the kind of lines that just never get old. As funny as the first time I saw it.

For some reason I always crack up when Randy's guy friend snaps his fingers at Farmer Ted when he says, "She's totally serious, a**wipe."

An incredibly bodacious and 80's move if ever there was one!

that guy is cool. Didn't he go on to get killed in Halloween 5 (1989), portraying a Fonzie wannabe?

That is exactly why I love this group right there! I knew I had seen him somewhere else! He was trying to throw down with Michael Myers for scratching his boss car! It has to be him!

that's the thing about 16 Candles everyone quotes it all the time........my friends that aren't even 80's nerds......"Dong..........Dong......(clap clap)where is my automobile?"

My fav when Grandpa Howard is describing Dong to the police on the phone....."no he's not retarded"

16 Candles was so not politically correct!

Ha.. I guess I was just having a 'theme' night...

Look, this information cannot leave this thread..Ok? It would devastate my reputation as a dude...

....I've never bagged a babe. I'm not a stud.

There are so many great quotes and hilarious moments in "Sixteen Candles"!
