Planes, Trains and Automobiles.

It's also Steve Martin's and John Candy's best movie.

Pretty in Pink (where I first fell in love/lust with James Spader!) I bought the soundtrack too, on cassette.

Some Kind of Wonderful

Aww man. Just one?. How about all and I was born after his heyday. LOL For me, it changes with my age (which film I watch the most). But, Uncle Buck is the family favorite. It is the movie when flipping through the channel my Dad always stops on when I am home. (The laundry room scene with the dog LOL)

However, I do love the Breakfast Club as a watch on my own kind of film. :)

Probably Breakfast Club

Breakfast Club. Hands down.

I understand that John Hughes movies are problematic. But they were my coming of age movies, and I will always love them.

That one from the 80's with the kids in it.

Sixteen Candles - because we have all been there, at some point in our lives.

Flashy Vic said...

Not a one. Maybe because I was a bit older than the target audience when they first came out but they all seemed so pathetic and trite. Whiny teenage brats.

DonnaC said...

Breakfast Club.

cat said...

I loved Sixteen Candles, until I realized perfect Jake let a boy rape his girlfriend, because he was fed up with her.

Samantha said...

When his movies first came out, people loved to be snobby about them, including some critics.

They were looked down upon as facile, family fare.

Now they are seen as classics.

SarahElizabeth said...

I love all of them, uncle buck and breakfast club are my top two! But I love sixteen candles and pretty in pink, such good casting for his movies. Annie Potts was hilarious. I was a preteen and teen in that era so this films though problematic were important to me at that time. Planes always makes me so sad bc John candy is so good init...

Breakfast Club.

Robyn S said...

Another vote for Pretty in Pink - for James Spader and his hair.

Tie. Sixteen Candles and Some Kind of Wonderful

Vita said...

Planes, Trains, and Automobiles; script for Christmas Vacation

Miss Anne Thrope said...

Sixteen Candles, my favorite by far

Unknown said...

Pretty in pink loved molly ringwald and James spader

mud said...

Christmas Vacation.

Vince said...

PLANES, TRAINS AND AUTOMOBILES

Lacey Jane said...

Pretty in Pink, mostly because of James Spader stealing every scene.

Freebird said...

Impossible to choose just one. 🤷🏼‍♀️

Hard to pick......But Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. I just saw it again this past weekend on a 17’ x 33’ screen. That John Hughes wrote it
In 6 days...!! It just captured that period in time so perfectly.

16 Candles

Worstcompanytoworkfor said...

Every last one of them including Mr. Mom except the one with Jennifer Lopez.

Worstcompanytoworkfor said...

Even though I think he was a racist. I even thought so back in the 80’s.

Unknown said...

Uncle Buck. Though it may be because of my adoration of John Candy.

Uncle Buck

Sixteen Candles.

SarcasticBimbo said...

Baby's Day Out - the kidnappers take such a beating from that baby. I know it's not the most intelligent movie in the world, but I laugh my ass off every time I see it.

OKay said...

I've gotta be honest, I think he's overrated. But he wrote the Vacation movies, so there's that.

Really, I *like* a lot of his movies. But I can't really say I *love* any of them.

Mary said...

Uncle Buck, I miss John Candy

James Howlett said...

John Holmes? Johnny Wadd?

VikingSong said...

They were never my cup of tea, but I watched the 'Breakfast Club' for the first time last year and was surprised that it's actually quite good.

Ferris Bueller, you're my hero...

Ferris was the only one I saw when I was the correct age to see it, didn't see Breakfast Club, 16 Candles or Weird Science 'til I was way too old and I just don't feel a connection.

Still ain't never seen 'Planes, Trains...' despite loving the pillow scene...

Hi Enty, I kind of like the moderated version, bit more civilised. You don't have to post this one.
