Review & Comments

Leave your thoughts about Sixteen Candles.

Movie Reviews - 9/10 by Rob Vaux High school is high school no matter what the date, and Hughes ensures that the constancies of that age remain unchanged.
Chicago Tribune - 9/10 by Gene Siskel The best teenage comedy since last year's "Risky Business."
Montreal Film Journal - 8/10 by Kevin N. Laforest The plot is kinda corny, yet really enjoyable. The predictable happy end actually make you grin with pleasure.
Chicago Sun-Times - 8/10 by Roger Ebert A sweet and funny movie about two of the worst things that can happen to a girl on her sixteenth birthday.
Variety - 8/10 by Variety Staff There's also a darkly handsome high school heartbreak kid (Michael Schoeffling), a merciful brisk pace, some quick humor (visual and verbal), and a solid music track. - 8/10 by Brian Orndorf Candles is a brazenly mischievous, consistently uproarious comedy that christens the devastating Hughes-fu with vivacious results.
Common Sense Media - 8/10 by Randy White Racy, drunken, hilarious '80s high school comedy.
Austin Chronicle - 8/10 by Marjorie Baumgarten Molly Ringwald is radiant here as the eternal teen looking for love.
Antagony & Ecstasy - 7/10 by Tim Brayton A high school film just smart enough to be special and bad enough that it could be improved upon.
The New York Times - 7/10 by Janet Maslin The movie is cheerful and light, showcasing Mr. Hughes's knack for remembering all those aspects of middle-class American adolescent behavior that anyone else might want to forget.
Boston Globe - 6/10 by Jay Carr Along with the lapses of taste that have become standard in pictures aimed at teen audiences, filmmaker John Hughes offers moments of wit and warmth.
Kalamazoo Gazette - 6/10 by James Sanford "a classic of its kind that's now a time capsule"
