Sixteen Candles (1984)

A coming of age flick full of guilty laughs, date rape, racism, homophobia and utterly bizarre characters. Honestly, at its core there's something to be said about the multidimensional characters and its shedding of standard tropes, but the old school sensibilities burn my ears.
