Episode 11 - Sixteen Candles

Can you believe Jon never saw 1984's Sixteen Candles? Can you believe he has no nostalgia for it? Can you believe a man can fly? Can you believe Ali's never seen Superman IV: The Quest For Peace? Can you believe Jon forgot to talk about the vast disparity in quality of the music in this movie? Can you believe how much casual racism, sexism, and homophobia is in this coming of age tale?

Sixteen Candles was written and directed by John Hughes and stars Molly Ringwald, Anthony Michael Hall, Michael Schoeffling, Gedde Watanabe, Havilland Morris, the 'sacks (John AND Joan), and is very much carried by the great Paul Dooley.
