John Hughes directorial debut from 1984, 16 Candles, is a hell of a controversial film! With offensive Asian stereotypes and a laissez faire attitude about sexual harassment and consent, it's hard to love this film through the lens of 2018, but it has its moments. I mean what person hasn't fantasized about a person seemingly out of their reach, only to have them show up at your sister's wedding, buy you a belated birthday cake, and make out with you atop a glass table!?? The Sweeties are a bit too young to be uber John Hughes fans, but we admire many aspects of his film making especially how he was able to capture all that teenage angst and awkwardness. We'll get down to the nitty gritty on this one as we chat about how poorly this film has aged over the years, our own feelings about turning the big 1-6, talk about male screenwriters obsession with boobs and "scoring", and how penises are weird and have we ever touched one?! Just kidding. Wait. Totally have. Winning!
