This is an {{MTV}} {{reality show}} about teenagers' sweet 16 birthday parties, where insanely rich teenagers cry, scream, swear, berate their parents and act as if the world is ending because they didn't want to get their $65,000 Lexus ''now'', they wanted to get it ''slightly later''. [[CharlieBrooker One commentator]] has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0b7mwTK564o remarked]] that it is almost certainly a portent of the complete collapse of our civilization, and excerpts have been used in [[UsefulNotes/NorthKorea North Korean]] propaganda videos about the decadence of the West.

[[MoodWhiplash On a happier note]], this show has spawned some decent {{spinoff}}s. The first is ''Film/MySuperPsychoSweet16'', a series of [[MadeForTVMovie made-for-TV]] {{slasher movie}}s in which the little twerps get what's coming to them, and ''Exiled'', another reality show in which the parents of former ''Sweet 16'' stars, fed up with their kids' behavior, send them off overseas so that they can find out what it's ''really'' like to suffer.
Tropes related to the show:
* AlphaBitch: What the show is basically based around.
* CoolCar: It's their sixteenth birthday, so naturally its what they all want.
** One girl was pranked with a [[BoringButPractical used minivan]] before being given the blinged-out Range Rover she wanted.
* CoolCrown: If the party is princess themed, expect the birthday girl to have a huge sparkly one.
* DotingParent: Deconstructed. This trope is why the kids turn out to be self-centered, overindulged brats.
* EntitledBastard: To such a degree that [[CharlieBrooker at least one commentator]] has speculated that they represent the end of western civilisation itself.
* {{Fiction500}}: Gowns, jewels, parades of limos, extravagant venues, gourmet food, famous guests, world class entertainment- the works.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Fuckin' A!
* PimpedOutDress: What all the girl wear to their parties. One girl got a dress so huge [[UpToEleven she had to stand on ten foot tall mechanical platform to wear it.]] [[note]] She had a more reasonable, but still extravagant dress to change into.[[/note]]
* RealSongThemeTune: "Sweet Sixteen" by Hilary Duff.
* RichBitch
* SpoiledBrat: See AlphaBitch.
* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: The 2008 economic crash didn't really affect the rich, but it ''did'' make these over-the-top displays of wealth rather unfashionable...
* UngratefulBastard: As a spin-off of the ItsAllAboutMe going on.
** One girl screamed and had a hissy-fit when her mother ''got her the expensive car '''she wanted'''''. The reason is the girl had wanted to receive the car at her party, but instead got it the day before. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90HhZ-pyC2Y See Joel McHale's reaction.]]
