<div class="quote-block"><b>'Sixteen Candles,' 'Breakfast Club' director Hughes dead at 59</b><br><br><br><br>
By Todd Leopold<br><br><br><br>
(CNN) -- John Hughes, the producer, writer and director whose 1980s films such as "Sixteen Candles," "The Breakfast Club" and "Some Kind of Wonderful" offered a sharp-eyed look at teenagers and their social habits, has died, according to a statement from his representative. He was 59.<br><br><br><br>
John Hughes was behind some of the most beloved films of the 1980s.<br><br><br><br>

Hughes, who was also a prolific screenwriter and producer, was at his peak in the 1980s, when his films -- which starred young actors such as Molly Ringwald, Judd Nelson, Anthony Michael Hall and Jon Cryer -- dominated the box office and were hailed by critics for their thoughtful teen protagonists, rarely portrayed with such sympathy in comedies at the time.</div>

Anyone have a favorite John Hughes movie? One of mine is Ferris Bueller's Day Off.<br><br><br><br>

Oh, I just read this on the news. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> I don't know that I could choose between <i>The Breakfast Club</i> and Ferris. He was a pretty neat guy, actually.

Ferris Buellers (sp?) Day Off was one of those films I only watched the first time because there was nothing else on at the time ; I expected usual lame teenage "comedy".<br><br><br><br>
How wrong I was, its definately on my list of most excellent films.<br><br><br><br>

I do have a test today, that wasn't bullsh!t. It's on European Socialism. I mean, really, what's the point? I'm not European. I don't plan on being European. So, who gives a crap if they're Socialists? They could be fascist anarchists, it still wouldn't change the fact that I don't own a car.<br><br><br><br>

But can we ever forgive him for 'Curly Sue' and 4 seperate Beethoven the dog films?</div>

He directed those under an alternate name, so yes, we will ignore them and focus on the classics I adore oh so much. Most of my favourite movies are 80's movies, and many of those were his creations...<br><br><br><br>
Next movie night I have shall be dedicated to him. I have The Breakfast Club and Ferris Bueller's Day Off at home. I am sure my friends can produce copies of some of the other greats.

One of my favourite quotes from that movie, but then, those are endless. Admittedly, I can quote most of that movie as I am watching it and not ever realize I am doing so... out loud... much to the dismay of whoever might be my viewing company at that time.

Me, too. I shall watch them later in Hughes' honor. My cousin, also a Ferris Bueller fan, is a teacher and was subbing one day. One of the students was giving her a hard time, so she ordered him to the principal's office. She asked his name, and he responded, Abe Froman. She got the reference and without missing a beat replied, You're Abe Froman, the sausage king of Chicago? It was classic.
