A girl's "sweet" sixteenth birthday becomes anything but special, as she suffers from every embarrassment possible.
In the book "You Couldn't Ignore Me If You Tried: The Brat Pack, John Hughes, And Their Impact on a Generation" by Susannah Gora, Molly Ringwald says that because she and Anthony Michael Hall were too young to entertain themselves at bars or nightclubs, they often spent their Saturdays off from filming Sixteen Candles (1984) crashing the Bar and Bat Mitzvah receptions that were being held at the hotel in Skokie, Illinois, where the cast was being housed.
I was going to tell you something, but, maybe I shouldn't. It's pretty bad.
Samantha: You may as well. Nothing could shock me anymore.
Randy: Last night at the dance, my little brother paid a buck to see your underwear.
Howard: Geez! I hate that rock 'n' roll ...
When Jake Ryan and his friend are doing fake pull-ups in the gym, and they pull back, you can see the dolly track. (Full-screen version only)
The final copyright notice misspells "liabiltiy."
The television version includes a lunchroom scene where Samantha and her friend see the guy Samantha likes and she declares that she can't eat.
