80's director John Hughes dies at age 59


he directed, produced, and/or wrote Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Pretty In Pink, Home Alone (and Home Alone 2), National Lampoon’s Vacation (and 2 sequels), Mr. Mom, Planes Trains and Automobiles, Uncle Buck, and Some Kind of Wonderful.


i grew up watching his movies. the first 4 on that list are some of my fav movies of all time. his movies have left a great impression of pop culture. think of how many times have you've heard "Bueller... Bueller... Bueller.." or seen somebody do the shocked Home Alone face.


"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."

(from Ferris Bueller's Day Off)



1950 - 2009

The Breakfast Club, and Uncle Buck, were my favorites, otherwise I have a hard time watching campy High School movies. My High School days were depressing and even tramatic for me, so no reminders thank you.


59 not too bad.

Have greater sympathy for good people who are less fortunate though.
