Monday-ish Movie Meme – John Hughes

Feature Presentation…MONDAY MOVIE MEME
Visit the Bumbles for more John Hughes fun.
This week’s movie topic is all about John Hughes…
This week’s topic is all about the films of the late John Hughes. Admit it. Once upon a time (in your life), you were bitten by the John Hughes bug. I haven’t seen all of his movies, but those I saw still beat those chick flicks running around these days. Show how much you love John Hughes’ movies by answering this:
 
John Hughes… How do I love thee? Let me count the ways

Being a gal of the 80′s I couldn’t pass this one up – even if I’m late!

1.Planes, Trains, & Automobiles (1987).  He wrote, directed, and produced.

Neal: Del… Why did you kiss my ear?
Del: Why are you holding my hand?
Neal: [frowns] Where’s your other hand?
Del: Between two pillows…
Neal: Those aren’t pillows!

2.The Breakfast Club (1985). He wrote & directed.  Iconic movie with music that always takes me back to the 80′s!

3.Sixteen Candles (1984). Wrote & Directed.

4.Pretty in Pink (1986).  Wrote screenplay.  I love this movie and soundtrack.

5.Some Kind of Wonderful (1987)  Wrote screenplay.  I’ve included a few bookish quotes from the movie.

Keith Nelson: You can’t tell a book by its cover.
Watts: No, but you can tell how much it’s gonna cost you.
Keith Nelson: Wow, I never knew you were so deep.
Watts: You want shallow, call Amanda Jones.

Watts: It must be a drag to be a slave to the male sex drive.
Keith: It’s not just sex.
Watts: Oh, you want to start a book club with her?

I’m limiting myself to 5 or this post would be way too long!  Do you have a favorite John Hughes movie?
