John Hughes Dead at 59

August 6, 2009

A little bit of a jock, a princess, a criminal, a brain and a basket-case all just died.

The 59 year old Hughes died of a heart attack during his morning walk in Manhattan.

Ferris Bueller was far and away my favorite Hughes movie, but The Breakfast Club, National Lampoon’s Vacation, and Home Alone are great movies as well. (Buzz, your girlfriend WOOF!) But those movies don’t even scratch the surface of his talent as a writer, director and producer. He’s responsible for most if not all of the great movies of the 80s and early 90s.

This is the only way Hughes can be summed up: (note: uncensored)
