Ranking the Top Ten Movies Written by John Hughes

MSDMION FE016

If someone were to ever write a book or article that tried to explain the 80s in depth, there would have to be an entire chapter or section devoted to John Hughes. I just don’t think it’s even possible to leave the guy out. If there’s anyone who understood high school life and told the story of teenagers in that time period it was certainly Hughes. And not only just teenagers, life in general.

The guy just had a penchant for culture in that time period. After 1990? Well that’s a different subject. You’ve got Curly Sue, Home Alone and then Hughes just lost it (although Dutch was awesome). Drillbit Taylor? In any event, let’s not veer from the true subject which is his 80s genius.  It’s a shame that Hughes died so young.  I’m sure he would have figured out this generation and we’d have seen some real classics.

Here are my top ten Hughes written (not directed) movies:
