John Hughes month continues on Cracked Movie Club! In 1984, after writing a string of successful comedies, Hughes made his directorial debut with Sixteen Candles, which launched the careers of 80s it-girl Molly Ringwald, John and Joan Cusack, and that weird guy who would go on to play the janitor in The Breakfast Club.


On this week’s episode, Tom is joined by guest host Bridgett Greenberg and Cracked’s Kristi Harrison as they discuss the numerous amazing but often-overlooked performances in the film, how the film’s status as a classic coming-of-age comedy is weighed down by its many problematic aspects, and whether or not Jake Ryan’s pants have a belt built into them.
