    Default s/o What is your favorite John Hughes Movie?

    The thread about Cameron's house from Ferris Bueller got me thinking about this. My favorite is DEFINITELY 16 Candles. So for fun, what is your favorite?

    Breakfast Club.

    I came across this shortly after John Hughes died and it really touched me:

    I was thinking the same thing. I voted for Ferris Bueller's Day Off, but I do love 16 Candles. I didn't get all of the hype about the Breakfast Club and Weird Science, but they were somewhat enjoyable.

    Pretty in Pink. I'm a sucker for the Duckster (Jon Cryer) and I heart Andrew McCarthey.

    That was very cool. I can't imagine doing something like that.
    I voted 16 Candles It is one of my all time favorite movies by anyone. I married a Jake Ryan looking alike You left out my #2 John Hughes film "She's Having a Baby"

    I voted breakfast club, though sixteen candles is a close second.

    I enjoy the ones already mentioned, but my favorite is She's Having a Baby. I just think it's a great, well-told story. The end with the birth sequence / flashback montage to Kate Bush's "This Woman's Work" always chokes me up. And I like how during the end credits various actors (from other John Hughes films and from projects shooting on nearly lots) suggest baby names.
