Ranking the Top Ten Movies Written by John Hughes

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.

Here are my top ten Hughes written movies

10.  Dutch

John Hughes Movies

Personally I think this film is highly underrated.  Anything with Ed O’Neill is awesome.  Plus the hot sister from Kate and Allie is in this movie and she plays a hooker.  You really can’t mess with that.

9.  The Great Outdoors

John Hughes Movies

I wasn’t as big a fan of this movie as I thought although it has to be in here.  If you watch it as an adult it’s a little child like and not mature enough for me.  Kid of a Disney movie if you ask me.  Still though, the Ol’ 96er scene rules.

8.  Some Kind of Wonderful

John Hughes Movies

Craig Scheffer as Hardy Jenns with 2 N’s.  Enough said.

7.  Mr. Mom

John Hughes Movies

I had no idea that Hughes wrote this movie but when you think about it, come on.  It HAD to be Hughes.  The scene in the strip club is amazingly disturbing.  And how can one ever forget “Chariots of Fire” during the ridiculous race?

6.  Uncle Buck

John Hughes Movies

“Melanoma Head.”

5.  Weird Science

John Hughes Movies

If only to see Robert Downy Jr.  in his youth.  Classic flick.  Hot girl.  Good supporting actress girls.   And come on now.  Bill Paxton?  Classic.

4.  Vacation

John Hughes Movies

Marty Moose, Marty Moose!

3. Sixteen Candles

John Hughes Movies

I think movies 3, 2, and one can all be number 1′s.  It’s tough to put them in order.  The amount of memorable lines from these movies is endless.

2.  Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

John Hughes Movies

Yes it’s a classic but I’m not sure it’s as good as Breakfast Club.  I feel like I can watch Breakfast Club 6 times in one day whereas Bueller only about 5.

1.  The Breakfast Club

John Hughes Movies

Eat. My. Shorts.

Notables that aren’t listed on here are Pretty in Pink, Christmas Vacation, Home Alone, Planes Trains and Automobiles, and….. Drillbit Taylor?   The only one of these I thought was decent was Christmas Vacation.  Sorry about the other ones.
