I watched Sixteen Candles again recently (after my memory being jogged by your post) and was appalled. I'd rather Pretty in Pink any day, save for the awful OMD track "If You Leave".

And is it just me, or did the lovely Ms Ringwald look better in every scene in the movie than in the denouement (clad in the pink dress of the title)...?

Great soundtrack, though, Manoeuvres aside...


You couldn't get away with 16 Candles' squeamish Asian stereotypes today. I hope it doesn't make me a bad person, though, if still unashamedly laugh at Gedde Watanabe's every utterance of "new style American girlfriend" and "wha's happening, hot stuff?" (Plus he seems OK with it in interviews.)
