A few days ago, Sixteen Candles came on the television.
I haven't watched that movie in ages, and although it wasn't my number one favorite of the John Hughes ouevre, I still like the movie a lot.
So, we made sure to have the DVR record it, and we were looking forward to watching it when Mr. P went to bed.
So we put it on, and laugh at Anthony Michael Hall and wonder whatever the hell happened to Jake's acting career, because he certainly never made another good movie after that one. I didn't even remember his name. Which is a shame, because he was certainly a hottie. Long Duc Dong, John Cusack's cameo, and Sam's sister, whose performance has been severely underrated. All were enjoyed.
So we sit through the whole thing, and finally get to the part where they are sitting on the table, birthday cake for Samantha in between them. "Make a wish," he says, candlelight illuminating their faces. "It already came true," she breathes. And then they lean in towards each other and.....
The recording ends.
I watch the whole freaking movie and don't even get the payoff of the kiss!
I am bitter.
