CAST: MOLLY RINGWALD, ANTHONY MICHAEL HALL, MICHAEL SCHOEFFLING, JOHN CUSACK
CINEMATOGRAPHY - BOBBY BYRNE
Ribald jokes, racist humor, and one memorable close-up of bare breasts didn’t stop John Hughes’s breakthrough debut from scoring a kidfriendly rating. Another entry from the summer of ‘84, this quintessential teen comedy, in which Molly Ringwald’s Samantha lusts after a handsome jock (Michael Schoeffling), avoids a lusty geek (Anthony Michael Hall), and angrily deals with her family forgetting her sweet sixteen, taught an entire generation of movie-lovers the ins and outs of the high school sex comedy.
