John Hughes.  He’s known as the King of Teen Movies.  Just his name will conjure up very specific memories.   My grandmother taking me to see ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’ (I don’t know which one of us loved it more!)…showing MY kids ‘The Breakfast Club’ as they started High School, and they got it and loved as much as I had when I was in High School.

It’s just about a Federal Law that, on the week-end when you’re doing chores or working in the house….TV on in the background, if a John Hughes movie comes on, that’s it. You MUST watch it.

And, I mean, look at this list… I guarantee there are a couple of surprises on here.  “THAT’S a John Hughes movie????”   Just take a look….
