This Is the Most Popular Romantic Comedy in Illinois

According to a new survey, the most popular romantic comedy in Illinois is...'16 Candles'! Would you agree??

Just in time for Valentine's Day, a new survey revealed Illinois' most popular romantic comedy.

According to Comparitech, Illinoisans most commonly find themselves enjoying "Sixteen Candles," the 1984 comedy by director John Hughes and one of actress Molly Ringwald's most famous flicks.

The movie, which was filmed in Chicago, follows a soon-to-be 16-year-old, Samantha, whose family forgets her birthday amidst her sister's wedding preparations. While dealing with classic high school problems, she finds herself in love with Jake Ryan, and working to catch his attention throughout the film.

"Sixteen Candles" only held the "most popular romantic comedy" title in Illinois, with results varied across the Midwest.

Here are the most popular rom-coms in surrounding states:

  • Indiana: "The Girl Next Door"
  • Wisconsin: "Grease"
  • Michigan: "Just One of the Guys"
  • Ohio: "Wedding Crashers"
  • Iowa: "She's All That"
