Sixteen Candles (1984)

Dir. John Hughes
Starring: Molly Ringwald, Anthony Michael Hall, etc.

I was suprised at the start of the movie as I didn’t feel like the movie was totally inane. I liked Molly Ringwald’s acting in this–her acting as a teenager and some of the other teenager felt real. Then it just slowly got worse, specifically the totally implausibility of the senior stud going for Ringwald’s character and his popular girlfriend eventually liking the Freshmen nerd (Hall).

But I was shocked by Gedde Watanabe’s character, Long Duck Dong. It was like Mickey Rooney’s character in Breakfast at Tiffany’s all over again. I didn’t realize how ugly the portrayal was.
