Sixteen Candles - Jake: I do independent study with her. I catch her lookin' at me a lot. It's kinda cool, the way she's always lookin' at me. Jock: Maybe she's retarded. Jake: I'm being serious, okay? She looks at me like she's in love with me.
16 CANDLES: One of the greats of the 80's, of course. JAKE!!! Who wasn't in love with him?! Still funny, still relatable, still the perfect slumber-party movie! There has yet to be another John Hughes.
"Whatever happened to chivilry? Does it only exist in 80s movies? I want John Cusack holding a boombox outside my window. I want to ride off on a lawn mower with Patrick Dempsey. I want Jake from 16 Candles waiting outside the church for me. I want Judd Nelson thrusting his fist into the air cause he knows he got me. Just once, I want my life to be like an 80s movie. - Olive, Easy A (2010)
