Chicago Tribune - 9/10 by Gene Siskel The best teenage comedy since last year's "Risky Business."
Common Sense Media - 8/10 by Randy White Racy, drunken, hilarious '80s high school comedy.
Chicago Sun-Times - 8/10 by Roger Ebert This is a fresh and cheerful movie with a goofy sense of humor and a good ear for how teenagers talk.
DVD Clinic - 8/10 by Scott Weinberg Broad, bubbly, and kind of adorable.
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.
TV Guide Magazine - 8/10 by Unknown The premise is ordinary, but the film is distinguished by funny gags and excellent performances by Molly Ringwald and Anthony Michael Hall.
Austin Chronicle - 8/10 by Marjorie Baumgarten Molly Ringwald is radiant here as the eternal teen looking for love. - 8/10 by Brian Orndorf Candles is a brazenly mischievous, consistently uproarious comedy that christens the devastating Hughes-fu with vivacious results.
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.
Spirituality and Practice - 7/10 by Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat Demonstrates writer and director John Huges's keen eye for the foibles, inner torments and social embarassments of adolescence
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.
Variety - 7/10 by Unknown Ringwald is engaging and credible. For the boys, there's a bright, funny performance by Anthony Michael Hall.
