USA Network has a Sixteen Candles sequel planned.
32 Candles will update the lives of Sam Baker, Farmer Ted, Long Duk Dong and the rest of the gang.
Right. Long Duk works part time in a customer service phone bank and lives with grandma and grandpa. Ted is a "freelance" web designer with a legion of female teen readership at his weblog, pinkshirt.com. Sam married Ducky, works as a Walmart greeter and hopes nobody remembers she's turning 32. Jake, what are you up to?

This sounds like a bad, bad idea. No no no, USA! And wait a second -- I thought Ducky was from Pretty in Pink, not Sixteen Candles?
He is. But who says Hughes worlds can't collide? Maybe Ducky showed up at saturday detention the following week from the prom and kicked Bender's ass. That's how he won Sam over.
Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! Something in my gut tells me this should not be happening.
Jake's making furniture in Pennsylvania with Bender's dad & Cameron is their accountant.
Ugh. Made for TV? This will be awful. I predict that John Cryer and Anthony Michael Hall will be the only originals that sign on for this. Ever notice that every show Cryer's on gets cancelled? He has the kiss of death or something, which is unfortunate because he was great as Ducky.
Of course it will be awful. Has anything mentioning "the rest of the gang" ever been good? Joel Siegel will surely say, "Madcap Fun! Take the family."
And how weird that she'll be married to Ducky. That's just wrong -- partly because the only thing we want to see is how her relationship with Jake Ryan turned out, and partly because of the 2 movies crossing (or should I say colliding?).
Disappointment, USA . Disappointment.
Mojan, I am with you. She MUST marry Jake. I mean COME ON!!!!
I think it is a great idea. I hope jake is in it. He is really handsome. At least it was about 20 years ago. I can't wait.
