Here. I must have watched Pretty In Pink at least 10 times. And I was obsessed with The Breakfast Club for a while.

just heard the news. very sad, his films epitomised the 1980s for my high school years. RIP.

He wrote & produced "Some Kind of Wonderful" which I loved when I was younger - must watch it again sometime...

Oh dear, Pretty in Pink made me ache. My inner teenager still has a quiet sod whenever I think about that movie. sad

Your inner teenager does what?

I too, was and remain an admirer of the Brat Pack films.

...'tis Friday. So tonight I feel I shall watch Pretty in Pink and The Breakfast Club whilst drinking a toast or six to Mr Hughes.

That's sad, he was so young.

Pretty In Pink is one of my faves too!

Ah, that's sad. I started watching Two and A Half Men recently with Jon Cryer, which led me to watch Pretty In Pink again and I still loved it, even though I am a 34 year old who will never again be asked to a dance.

God Prett in Pink was my seminal teenage film.
I wasnted to be Molly Ringwald.
Didnt he do Ferris beullers Day off too?

I hadn't realised that he wrote Home Alone - I love that film. Even though I know exactly what will happen I still laugh like a drain - and I've never seen DS3 laugh as much as he did the first time he watched it.

I've just been reading this, how sad, he was very young.

How sad. Perhaps a John Hughes DVD-fest is in order tonight, to remember his works and my youth. I think I still have Pretty in Pink on video tape. And Ferris Bueler was just magnificent. "Anyone? Anyone?"

Heopfully they will have some of them on Sky as I only have Ferris Bueller on DVD. Love his films.

Ferris Bueller's Day off is one of my all time favourites, me and my sister knew it off by heart !

Last night I decided to introduce DS 13 to Ferris Bueller, didn't know he had died.

stiginthedumps Fri 07-Aug-09 09:52:10

I also have a thing for James Spader!

also realised he did 'Mr Mom' with Michael Keaton. Has anyone seen this? Such a funny film but I can't find it over here, maybe it wasn't shown in the UK hmm?

Some Kind of Wonderful was brilliant, as was Ferris Bueller's Day Off. I spent my teenage years quoting those films and wishing I lived in his version of the US!

Meglet Fri 07-Aug-09 21:44:50

Ferris Bueller is my favourite film. However I was banned from naming ds ferris hmm grin.

I love so many of his films sad
