    I am so bummed! I grew up with all the John Hughes movies - I can quote Sixteen Candles "The Donger need food!"and The Breakfast Club on a daily basis. Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Planes, Trains & Automobiles (Those aren't pillows!) A huge part of my high school years - he made some great movies - I will always think of him fondly - may he rest in peace.

    The Breakfast Club is hands down the BEST 80s flick EVER! RIP to a Genius! :(

    "What's happenin' hot stuff?" Long Duck Dong, Sixteen Candles

    Best movie ever! If only all teenage boys could have been Jake Ryan.

    Love the John Hughes movies. Think I'll run my own little John Hughes movie marathon on Saturday. I have Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, and The Breakfast Club. I'll have to see if I have any others.

    Ferris Bueller's Day Off is one of my all-time favorite movies and shows off Chicago. The Breakfast Club is a movie that is relevant in any decade and still makes me cry.

    I too loved all those John Hughes movies from the 80's!

    Jake Ryan was played by Michael Schoeffling who never really "broke out" in the acting world. I don't know why, he was dreamy:)

    So far I've watched Sixteen Candles, Weird Science, and Pretty in Pink. I'm currently watching The Breakfast Club. I'd forgotten that the Cusaks were in Sixteen Candles. I had also forgotten that the guy who was marrying the sister in Sixteen Candles was also in the blues bar in Weird Science and played the janitor in The Breakfast Club.

    Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Mr. Mom, and Home Alone are still waiting for play.

    ETA: I'd forgotten how much Anthony Michael Hall looked like my brother in high school. I'm also remembering my crushes on Andrew McCarthy and Judd Nelson. That's right--the sensitive guy and the bad boy. I often tell The Furry Guy that I fell in love with him because he's a really sensitive man who looks like a bad boy.

    Ferris Beuller's Day Off has to be one of the funniest movies ever. I love Edie McClurg as the secretary. I laugh until I snort when she keeps pulling pencils out of her hair.

    Whenever I see the movie I remember when The Furry Guy and I saw it in the theater. We are that weird couple that always stays all the way through the credits. We just knew that the guy at the police station had to be related to Martin Sheen. He looked just like him. Sure enough--it was Charlie Sheen.
