I Heart Jake Ryan

Sixteen Candles (1984) will forever be a cult classic for teenagers.  American Pie has nothing on this movie.  This movie, in the best way possible, has wrecked me (and probably a lot of other girls too).  The dream boat, sensitive, jock shows up unexpectedly and whisks away the girl.  He even opens the car door AND gets the girl a birthday cake. And excuse me? In the most genuine and shy of ways says "Make a wish?"

This song, his face, and the remote possibility that this could actually happen in real life makes me giddy every time I watch this.  Time to reminisce!  YES PLEASE!
