I remember having all my girlfriends at my house and we would watch this movie over and over. Needless to say Jake Ryan (Michael Schoeffling) was my and a lot of the other girls first crush. One of my favorite lines comes during the father/daughter talk when she is crying over her crush. He says to her "That's why they call them crushes. If they were easy, they would call them something else."
We were so in love with Jake that we tried to take his picture on the TV so we could hang the picture in our lockers (unfortunately, the flash prevented this). We all dreamed that the ending would happen to all of us or at the very least one of us.
Happy Birthday Samantha. Make a wish,
Well, it already came true.
Enjoy Jake and Sixteen Candles
