Samantha Baker's family may have forgotten her landmark birthday, but Brat Pack fanatics have no trouble remembering Sixteen Candles.

On May 4, 2014, the iconic John Hughes high school movie turns 30 years old. A film about the emotional annoyances and social snafus that come with being a teen, Sixteen Candles is still relatable today. Or, at the very least, ladies continue to wonder, "What happened to dreamboat Jake Ryan?"

To celebrate the legacy of Sixteen Candles, we used Photoshop wizardry to bring Molly Ringwald and the rest of the Brat Packers together with their '80s selves. The results are unforgettably rad.
