I love John Hughes movies - always have. From the Vacation films to Pretty in Pink, these are classic movies, and I have a lot of fond memories associated with them. Admittedly, I sort of jumped off the John Hughes boat around the time of Home Alone, but prior to that, I saw nearly everything he put out.
What are my favorites of his work? That's a hard one, but if I had to choose a few, they'd be: Sixteen Candles, National Lampoon's Vacation, The Breakfast Club, Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, and Weird Science. The man was a master at tapping into the 80's teen psyche. What a great loss. :-(
