Everyone Wants a Piece of the Comeback Spotlight

This could be good…or really bad!

Molly Ringwald revealed in a recent interview that she would be up for doing a Sixteen Candles sequel.

Ringwald says, "It was something that I definitely wanted to do, but [writer-director] John Hughes wasn't interested, and I didn't feel comfortable doing it without his involvement. If we can get John to agree, I think it would be great. I think there are definitely a lot of people who would love to see it, and I would love to do it."

Perhaps, John Hughes knows what's best. Why mess with a classic?

What are your thoughts?

Do y'all want to see a sequel????

    No, like you said leave classics..CLASSICS. remakes or sequels almost never compare to the original.

  2. Amand says – reply to this


    2

    YES! But only if you can get not only John Hughes but also the actor who played Jake Ryan, who quit the business in 1990 and is a carpenter somewhere.

  12. jenna says – reply to this

    no sequel…wtf ?! they're all old now!

  13. hater says – reply to this


    13

    as much as I'd love to see some sequels to John Hughes' movies, they're probably best left alone.
    Think "Gone With The WInd II"
    How about if Hughes made some new movies though? Has he done anything recently?



  14. 14

    it would probz be awful… sequels are usually poo.
    she just needs the money!! $$

    Pretty in Pink would be a better choice - and we'd get to see the the ORIGINAL McDreamy… Andrew McCarthy

    I think it could possibly tarnish the golden classic that is 16 Candles.

    "SORRY, BUT NEEDIE TO ASK….DOES ANYONE THINK PEZIE LOOKS LIKE THE SUN-MAID GIRL???????????????????????"

  32. Jessi says – reply to this


    32

    I was in 10th grade when this came out. Needless to say, I've seen it 50 times. Funny as hell, I can recite all the lines. I would love to see a sequel if they came out with a script. Don't forget Long Duck Dong and the oily bo-hunk. And Jenny. Muscle relaxed out Jenny. John Huges was brilliant in the 80's. Loved all his movies. Anthony Michael Hall has GOT to be in the sequel, too!

    first bitches!!!????? dont ruin the original, leave it alone!!!!

  34. Dawn says – reply to this


    34

    NO!….this first was okay because it was the first….like Wayne's World, no sequel required….

  35. Me says – reply to this


    35

    What would the concept be? Her married to Jake Ryan or going to a high school reunion and rekindling her romance with Jake??? Unless he's in it I don't think it would work…..he was a hottie!

  36. super says – reply to this


    36

    hell to the the yeahs!!!

  37. mia says – reply to this


    37

    NO! Bad idea. I LOVED that movie and to make a sequal would just ruin everything. Sorry Molly can't find a job.

  38. OMG says – reply to this


    38

    yes, here is the plot.

    It's 20 years later, she is divorced, she has two kids that hook in the school for lunch money. Molly returns as the mother, and has herpes, but she can't get a date, as the school is winding up to graduate.

    The Geek, who was after Ringwald, is rich and banging playboy playmates, cuz they are all hooker in real life,( come on they are all putas) he decides to recapture how he loved being a geek, now he is a corporate raider that rapes 3rd world countries.

    he finally get to bang molly, but gets the herpes, they all laugh at the end, then the geek sues molly for giving him herpes.

    It's a sell!!!! want the script, call me. perez, hand out the email.

  39. bktx4 says – reply to this

    Yes I would love to see the sequel….Molly rocks…come on John Hughes, go for it. Laters!!

  40. Sande says – reply to this

  41. dalip says – reply to this


    41

    16 Candles is one of my fave movies of all time. Why *uck with it? A sequel would ruin it!!!!!! Nooooo sequel!

  42. Mama_ says – reply to this


    42

    RE: #10- ae: How old are you??? EVERYONE has either seen or knows about 16 Candles - it is an 80's classic. This is a picture of Molly Ringwald - an actress who starred in NUMEROUS 80's films - most of which are poular. Get your head out of your ass and stop talking about things you know nothing about.

  43. Kim says – reply to this


    43

    I WOULD LOVE TO SEE THAT…I am a child of the 80s

  45. mary says – reply to this


    45

    First!!!! yes!!! I love that movie!!!

  46. manda says – reply to this


    46

    I love "16 Candles", I'd love to see another movie. Obviously they're not going to do a remake so I don't think "messing with a classic" is really appropriate as they can't put 40 year-olds into 16 year-olds. I'm sure Ringwald just meant that she'd love to get the cast together again and make another feel-good period-piece movie about friends and life's mishaps. I'd love to see it!

  47. nik06 says – reply to this


    47

    NO MORE SEQUELS. For god's sake, can't anyone come up with anything new?

  48. starr says – reply to this

  49. Jon says – reply to this


    49

    Do the sequel only if JAKE RYAN is in it!!! Love Jake Ryan sooo HOT

  50. mamac says – reply to this


    50

    No don't do it. There are some movies that should not be touched mostly all John Hughes movies. Do Not Do Any More!!!!!

  51. Joe says – reply to this


    51

    no there shouldn't be one. how can she do it? she's old now! I agree with you perez… it's a classic.. leave it alone.

  53. CiCi says – reply to this

    i think it would be great … like her children or something. i was just thinking the other day what a sequel to the breakfast club would be like. to see how they turned out and if their kids were to end up together in school suspension. my neice who is 16 just watched it and it brought me back big time. i loved that movie. could watch both of them over and over again.

    76

    as long as john hughes is involved, and they get the oringal cast back.
    if they can do that, it would be worth seeing.

    I loved the movie, it's a right of passage, I believe, for every teen generation. I am torn about a sequel. They usually suck and where would this go? I would love to see Jake Ryan once again though.



  83. 83

    Re: ae – You must be what…12 or 13?? Look it up on the internet and find out! You probably never heard of the Breakfast Club either I suppose?

    Re: ae – Are you for real? It's a classic. I was 8 when it came out and my nieces who are currently 14 and 15 saw it a few years ago. I suggest you broaden your horizons from Miley Cyrus, The Jonas Brothers and The Hills.

  96. Logan says – reply to this


    96

    I wonder why they didn't do an immediate sequel. You know to show how the Sam/Jake relationship played out. I have to say 80s movies were the best. They talked about a sequel to About Last Night, but it never materialized:-(
