Overview
It's Samantha Baker's Sweet Sixteen and no one in her family remembers the important occasion. John Hughes, the writer of National Lampoon's® Vacation shows how coming-of-age can be full of surprises in this warm-hearted teenage comedy starring Molly Ringwald.

She's your average teen, enduring creepy freshmen, spoiled siblings, confused parents and the Big Blonde on Campus who stands between her and the boy of her dreams. But wait...the day isn't over yet! This sparkling film features a dynamic score, and outstanding performances by Paul Dooley, Emmy winner Blanche Baker and Oscar® nominee* Justin Henry.

*Nominated 1979 Best Supporting Actor, Kramer vs. Kramer
