Leaving Hollywood behind

Whatever happened to John Hughes?


The guy who wrote and directed Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Pretty in Pink, The Breakfast Club, and the film featuring the best performance by John Candy and Steve Martin ("Those aren't pillows!"), Planes, Trains and Automobiles.

In other words, the guy who pretty much defined the '80s for a generation of moviegoers.

The answer's here.

I just watched Sixteen Candles for the 1000th time last night.. I never get sick of that movie or Pretty In Pink, and The Breakfast Club, I own them all on DVD. They were my Teenage anthems and I still feel that the movies are timeless. I don't know one person that couldn't relate to at least one character in all of his movies.

Some favorite quotes of mine from Sixteen Candles

The Geek: "So, what's your story? I mean, you got a guy, or..."?
Samantha: "Yes, three big ones, and they lust wimp blood so quit bugging me or I'll sic them all over your weenie ass"

"No more yankie my wankie. The Donger need food"
