Of course! John Hughes rules! [In reply to] Can't Post

Have you seen Pitch Perfect? I really like the homage they paid to The Breakfast Club.

Although, I do have to say, Sixteen Candles is my favorite of the Molly Ringwald movies.

I think it's a fine film [In reply to] Can't Post

Even though it really isn't my kind of thing. My favorite Hughes film is Planes, Trains and Automobiles, which is a bit more outside his wheelhouse.

PT&A is a classic...in fact...all of John Hughes movies are classics [In reply to] Can't Post

of their genre. Uncle Buck is another. John Candy was terrific at expressing emotion and pulling the audience into his characters.

The Breakfast Club resonates for the very reasons he made it...we all had an asst principal like Paul Gleason as Richard Vernon and knew students like those portrayed. And it still holds up pretty well. The clothing styles are not really atypical - maybe Claire's (Molly Ringwald) but the rest I see being worn today.

I don't there's a Hughes Movie I dislike! [In reply to] Can't Post

My daughters were teens during the Hughes craze... and my eldest was SO Molly Ringwald! She still is! Pretty in Pink especially!

Yeah... we still have marathons when we get together. My g'kids have also just discovered those great flicks!

Being [In reply to] Can't Post

a child of the 80s, I really enjoyed Breakfast Club, although I think I liked Ferris Bueller's Day off a little better.

Yep, especially the dance scene :) [In reply to] Can't Post

But I prefer Pretty in Pink - love Jon Crier as Ducky - and Planes, Trains, and Auto mobiles. Smile

John Hughes, grand master of teenage humor and angst [In reply to] Can't Post

Breakfast Club was the first John Hughes movie I ever saw, so it stuck for a bit, I liked Judd Nelson's character (he had that bad boy thing going on). But I love Ducky in Pretty in Pink (like his dance scene in the record store). But my all out favorite is Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Best quote in that whole film is at the end "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it." Or the "I don't really believe in isms" quote

"A day will come at last when I shall take the hidden paths that run, West of the Moon, East of the Sun." -Frodo Baggins
