We gave it an C+

With cultural reflections from Diablo Cody and Heathers director Michael Lehmann and fun tidbits in the cast interviews (John Belushi’s mom played a wedding guest and director John Hughes let Hall pick his fellow-geek pals — John Cusack, anyone?), Sixteen Candles: Flashback Edition‘s EXTRAS offer more than previous Candles editions. But the absence of Ringwald, Hughes, and Michael Schoeffling (timeless hottie Jake Ryan) will leave you feeling empty inside. No Jake, no love! C+
