Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?
I was so sad to hear of John Hughes passing yesterday. His movies were such an important part of my teen years. My first date was to see Sixteen Candles & I fell in-love with Jake Ryan (not my date) and in fact, named my first son in honor of this "perfect guy". I remember going with friends to see The Breakfast Club, Weird Science, Pretty in Pink, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and Some Kind of Wonderful. We would quote lines from the movie and thought Hughes stories were created just for us. My husband & I still watch Planes, Trains, and Automobiles every Thanksgiving and Christmas Vacation every year. I still cry every time I watch She's Having A Baby and Uncle Buck and laugh even harder with Mr. Mom and National Lampoon's Vacation now that I am mother.
