Some great flicks of my youth in his body of work.
Wow - bummer. Yeah, he was a pretty big part of my childhood too.
Definitely had a huge influence on me as well. He will be greatly missed.
Rest In Peace, John.
Didn't he also do Home Alone? I really enjoyed his movies. Sad, 59 is too young to die.
Oh bloody hell. That's a shame.
It's funny too, my sister (16) has just started getting into films and we both really liked his work. We've almost seen all his stuff and just missing on Weird Science now. Before I even started looking at who wrote and directed films I used to love his work. Damn. Damn!
Sad news. So young.
Enjoyed many of his films. RIP.
He was also a Lansing MI boy. RIP my brother...
I also grew up on his films.
Very, very sad.
We won't forget about you.
Although I didn't see all of his movies, the ones i did see were great. RIP John.
He also launched a lot of famous careers with his movies.
RIP John Hughes. His movies just really connect with me even though they were made 5-10 years before I was born, and it shows how many of his movies are timeless and generation-less in their appeal and depth.
This calls for a John Hughes movie marathon tomorrow-Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, Weird Science, Pretty in Pink, Ferris Buehler's Day Off...
Damn. He really hit a sweet spot with his films.
Very sad. His films are some of my all time favourites.
The next time I have to come in here I'm crackin' skulls.
He really left a brilliant legacy of films. He set the bar pretty high for unfortunate travel experience too.
Like other posters, I grew up with those movies as well. Definitely sad.
At least we still have his works for posterity, and hopefully newer generations will discover them.
Well here's someone we know no one will ever forget about.
Yeah, u c wut I did thar.
Anyways, I really enjoyed the breakfast club and a lot of his other movies, not just when they were released, but also recently. He'll be sorely missed.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off was one of the great all time films in my book, so fun and entertaining. I always secretly hoped for a Sequel with Ferris skipping work, or trying to catch his kid skipping work, but now I don't think it'll ever happen.
RIP Mr. Hughes.
I was just thinking about the movies he made. So many good movies.
My favorites were Sixteen Candles and Weird Science.
Very talented and creative individual. So sad when someone dies that young.
I liked the song by Oingo Boingo as well.
Very sad news!
watched lots of his films as a kid, in fact i got to the point where i could probably quote most of Ferris Bueller off by heart.
Does anyone else remember Some kind of wonderful, it had one of the greatest lines ever, and its stuck with me to this day.
"you cant judge a book by it's cover"
"No, But you can tell how much it costs"
We watched Breakfast Club at the weekend, and Ferris Buehler's Day Off is winging its way to us in the post.
Fine, fine work John
Since NO one has even mentioned it. My favorite of all his movies is Romy and Michele's High School Reunion. I love that movie so much.
It hasn't been mentioned because it is not one of his....
