John Hughes movies

I watched Pretty in Pink on the Encore channel today and it reminded me how much I love those John Hughes' movies from the 80s - The Breakfast Club, Some Kind of Wonderful, Sixteen Candles, etc. I guess it's partly a nostalgia thing because I was a teenager myself when they came out, but I do think they were very good teen comedies and hold up pretty well today - even if the music and the fashions date them somewhat (or a lot!)

I don't like John Hughes 80s movies.

I think they stereotype roles in high school.

I can kind of see what you mean. When I was watching Pretty in Pink today I was thinking to myself, "Sheesh, could they have made the snotty rich kids any more one-dimensional?" But on the whole I think the characters in most of the John Hughes movies had a lot more depth than a lot of teen movies.

I those films, My faves are:
1. Ferris B's day off
2. P,T and A
3. Uncle Buck
I loved John Candy, I think he was a really funny guy, such a shame he's not around any more.
