RIP John Hughes

Today we lost a movie great. John Hughes, who was a writer/director of some of the best teens movies passed away from a heart attack on his morning walk. He brought us such classics as 16 Candles, The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. And those are just the films he directed! He wrote those and so many other greats like Pretty in Pink, Home Alone, and wrote the recent funny movie Drillbit Taylor.

He left his mark on many of our lives, I know I grew up watching his 80s teen classics, even though I was born a few years too late to enjoy them in theaters.

RIP John Hughes.

My favorite John Hughes scene is in Ferris Bueller's Day Off, when the guys can't find Ferris and then he suddenly shows up in parade in the middle of the city singing Danke Shen. Hilarious!

Bueller Parade Scene!
