    Many of you may not be old enough to remember Sixteen Candles. But that movie, molded my growing up years. I loved it, watching it over and over. Even now when Matt is not around, I’ll pop the DVD in. Sixteen Candles is a cult hit from 1984. It’s a movie that was written and directed by the late John Hughes and was a growing up film.
