Sixteen Candles is a classic John Hughes movie featuring none other than the lovely Molly Ringwald. (I mean, who else would he have cast, really?) Molly plays Sam Baker, whose sister is getting married the day after her birthday so everyone forgets about her. Sam is also in love with a senior named Jake Ryan, while a freshman, Ted, pines for Sam.

Following a lot of embarrassment and professions of love later, Sam and Jake ride off into the sunset together. (JK, he takes her to her sister’s wedding and gets her a cake.) This movie is ridiculous and not in a fun ’80s way. I mean in a purely absurd way.
